    fuel leak at rail?

    theres 2 basic o-rings you should replace every so often through use of taking off / putting on, the o rings on the injectors themselves along with the seals that insert into the intake manifold are special and should be oem & matched to the injector type...also highly recommend silicone spray...

    confused on engine condition, turbo 4g64

    i was told i can use my vaccum gauge to measure the blow by ; can I? wouldnt this bad to do if the breather port is always exhausting out? any idea of what readings im looking for? should be positive pressure in this case, why im wondering vs the normal vaccum its supposed to have aka negative...

    confused on engine condition, turbo 4g64

    theres been alot done with this n/t sohc engine right as it comes out from the factory, i found it to be most cost effective to have the head rebuilt at the local machine shop, was also curious to see how it'd preform owning a 6 bolt swap on my last build...ANYWAYS, it was already looked into...

    confused on engine condition, turbo 4g64

    ill try to make this short as i can with detail. what i have is a 2.4 sohc 4g64 n/t engine that is now been rebuilt and turbo'd, me and my cousin (cousin for the most part) did the block entirely, cleaning, new bearings and oem piston rings, got the pistons and everything looking new. gapped the...

    guys ive read all over jacks site about the ball, everything hes talking about is specifically for 2.0 4g63 transmissions, what i have is the 2.4 4g64 engine & transmission. im not sure how many differences there between the 2 transmissions but theres nothing behind the fork! i see a few...

    buring oil at idle

    it could. actually when my turbo burned oil because the oil did not drain fast enough, car smoked %100 of the time, with grey smoke but clearly oil. not sure how it plays out when your seals go bad though. how many miles on the engine? do you know how to do a leak down test?

    to start off, i've been going through these 2 links alot lately, only to go back and find that I followed each %100 besides actually installing the turbo. from what I have read, you can install the turbo ecu and still drive the car with the turbo ecu, as a n/a engine on 450cc injectors...

    there was a bit of confusion with this but as far as I see in the manual, firing orders exactly same. thing is upon taking the tps off for bench testing, tps actually check out %100, harder to hold the probes with it in the car. also wondering if there is a possibility of the TB shaft not...
