      GSXRunner replied to the thread 2G Boost gauge.
      It's not really an issue right now. It's just that for the two decades I've owned this car, I've always thought it to be an alternator gauge. Now that I know it's a boost gauge after all these years, I thought it would be helpful to know how it's...

      I got my car with an aftermarket boost gauge on the A pillar that works well and is marked.I think it's weird they would put a boost gauge next to an oil gauge. Since the oil gauge is a very critical indicator, I would think they would put an...

      The one on the left is a boost gauge? LOL I always thought it was an alternator charge gauge because it looks like a pic of an alternator and it has a plus and a minus. You sure about that?

      Does anyone have a schematic of the stock alternator gauge on a 2g? I've looked through some incomplete pdf's and only find an idiot light. The reason I ask is because the gauge is very low when the car is idling and when I drive, especially at a...

      Could be worn valve seals/guides as well. Usually when it's the stem seals, you get a big cloud of smoke when you decelerate. I thought I had bad stem seals after I sprung a bad oil leak. I jumped to conclusions and replaced the stem seals and it...

      No, you undo the clamps, remove the hose and plug up the hose with a bolt. To do this test, you have to block off the hose or you'll have a huge vacuum leak and the engine will run like crap. The PCV can be left unconnected for this test. Put...

      Pull the hose off the PCV. Plug it with something like a bolt and take it for a ride. If the smoking goes away, then you know it was the PCV and you will need to clean or replace it.

      Could be intermittent.

      Put a voltmeter on pins 6 and 8 of the PTU with the ignition in run position. You should get battery voltage on each pin. Also put it on pin 3 of the ignition coil plug. This is the first thing you should do. If these voltages are missing, you...

      Check your PCV, it could be stuck open. Usually this happens when the spring gets gunked up and no longer compresses. Remember, when you're idling, vacuum is high and if the PCV doesn't partially restrict with high vacuum as it's supposed to, it...

      Check the dual pressure switch. Looks like you have some blockage in the lines which could be triggering the dual pressure switch.

      Make sure all your connectors are tightly fitting. I had a loose TPS connector that drove me insane. It did exactly what you are saying here.I had this problem recently. It would only happen sometimes and then come and go, setting the P0300...

      Take the head off and do a combustion chamber water test. You turn the head upside down on a bench, pour water into the combustion chambers and see if they hold water; I bet two of them don't. If they do hold, shoot some compressed air into each...

      Skip the caliper paint and go with powder coating.

      GSXRunner replied to the thread 2G Blowing blue smoke.
      Will it do this without being under load (like in neutral) or just under boost? If you get it under boost only, you should check your turbo for play. You should probably test it anyway because it doesn't take long.

      I don't think rust reformer is made for high temperature applications. My guess is it lost adhesion from the heat and allowed moisture to enter the substrate.If you used an acid to remove rust, make sure you neutralize it with a base and...

      GSXRunner replied to the thread 2G Blowing blue smoke.
      When is it blowing this smoke? While idling? Accelerating, decelerating? Or is it constantly?If you see the smoke only when you decelerate, it's likely the valve stem seals/guides.

      I'm still running the original stock alternator. Two times it failed, once I had to replace the voltage regulator (I think around $10 on ebay) and maybe a year or two ago, I had to replace the brushes ($5 on Amazon). It's really easy and cheap to...

      GSXRunner replied to the thread 2G Overheating Issue.
      I know you put a new radiator in, but it's possible that it could be restricted; maybe a manufacturing defect. I would take it for a drive, get it nice and hot; then probe different spots on your radiator with your infrared temperature gun. Look...

      I never put anything but 87 octane in my car and it runs like a champ.
