you are driving a bottomless pit! an automobile with 266000 is going to cost you money thats probably why he gave it to you, take it on a one way trip to the junk yard and get another or my advice to you is to take your automobile to your local shop and a qualified technician should be able to diagnose the malfunctioning automobile

Db2451- Well, you mentioned that you replaced the timing chain above;. there's NO timing chain on this car, you must have meant timing belt. Anyway, I agree with the first post, it's time to say goodbye..... donate this car..... Your "friend" didn't do you any favor, rather, he just dumped his problems on your doorstep....Get rid of this albatross.....find another car to spend your money on... Good luck.
