General Subaru / *** THIS FORUM HAS SHUTDOWN ***
« Last post by Phizinza on January 13, 2020, 08:14:35 AM »
Due to a lack of time to moderate and very little usage we have decided to shut the forum down. There are plenty of alternatives and Facebook groups. We've left the content here as an archive. You will not be able to join the forum or post topics on it. All other functions should continue to work.

Thank you for your dedication to our community.

What are your plans with it, El_freddo? Are you just going to put up with it for now or?

Well it seems that the forum doesn't like my post!  I've emailed it to myself from my phone, copied it directly to the forum, got a http error 500 or something of the like.

I copied it into word. saved, copied back to forum, no change.

I've managed to write "testing, testing" - and that posted.  Even shortening my post that I want to put on the build thread it still comes up with this http error.  And I'm back on the work computer running chrome.

Hopefully we can get this sorted, I've not had this issue before!

Cheers

Update on this one - it's not the PVC valve, it wasn't an inlet manifold gasket. I think I just need to suck it up a realise that this engine is probably consuming oil or running rich, I'm not sure which one. No blue smoke so it's not loads of oil.

Rings are possibly toast since the engine sat for a number of months with the sump and crank case full of water...

Well, I've tried to post in a couple of my threads via my phone using safari and no dice...

I'm currently on my staff computer that's using a chrome browser.

Interesting. I've never heard of anyone replacing a PCV for this reason but it does make logical sense that it would effect predetonation.

Hey Phiz,

While it's certainly helped it's not completely solved the issue.  I'm now wondering if I've got a compromised inlet manifold gasket that's letting air into one bank, leaning out the air fuel mixture.

It's still getting me around town without an issue so I'm not really phased at the moment.

I'll keep this updated as I work things out as they happen ;)

Cheers

Bennie
