Default 1993 Allante

I have a 1992 Allante with a 4.5 liter engine. I recently had some cylinder head problems and found it necessary to install a new engine. When I was researching the problems with the engine, I was told that the problems were also prevelent with the 93 Northstar unit.

I am thinking about purchasing a '93 Allante with the Northstar but I am concerned about the potential engine problem. I was recently told that only the early Northstars had the problem and that the cars could be identified by the Northstar emblem on the trunk which was chrome on a black background. According to my source, cars with better engines were chrome with no black background.

Can anyone bring any light to bear on any of this information??

Thanks in advance for your help

not so .. who told you that?

please read the Allante XYZ Facts in our Allante FAQ .. the V4 is in the code sheet (spare tire well) of the cars that have the 2nd generation engines. However, they are still susceptible to the coolant issues.

"The 1993 had a mid-year V4 engine change. All these engines have shown a tendency for head-gasket failure due to coolant issues. Experience has shown that all coolants failed to protect the aluminum engines after 24 months. The Touring and Sports Coupe El Dorados were also given their own versions of the N* in the late '93 models as was the 93 Seville STS. "
