I am new here. I just bought a 90 Corolla DX with 126K that had sat for maybe a year. It fired on the first try with a jump. It runs fairly well. One thing is it is running hotter then I would like. The gauge gets to about the 10:00 position before the fan comes on. the fan is coming an at almost exactly 199F which is correct. It is also pinging a lot. Yesterday I tried to time it per specs but I could not see the mark because of the dirt. I decided to retard the timing from where it was to lessen the pinging. My thought that lack of performance was better on the car then pinging. Any thought? I am slowly doing all the maintenence that you would do to a car that has sat. (everything) I am flushing the coolant and changing the thermostat on Sat. What else would you all do? Thanks.
