Question about 1996 Volkswagen Jetta
Upon start up cannot touch fuel pedal until car cleans out.. cannot go over 3000 rpm.. Car sounds like it is starving for air.. air filter changed but air intake hose from air box to engine was wet with oil consitency liquid.
Where did this come from and how can I clean it out.. or clean out the air intake system of the car??
Really need the advice Car is harder to drive everyday...
From your brief desription I feel maybe the problem is located elsewhere, however to start helping with your request you could possibly purchase some intake cleaner, there are quite a few on the market that vary in cost. I have had fantastic results with (Hot Shot Power Boost) it is a tall aerosol can not too expensive and you spray it sensibly directly into to your intake manifold or down the throat of Carburated Engines whilst running on tickover.(Follow instructions fully)
Another way is to use additives in the fuel but this is time consuming and takes forever to achieve results, finally you could remove the whole intake system and clean it with solvents in a parts washer?
I feel the main reason possibly is Engine Breathing, when an engine wears the bores and piston rings allow gasses to pass into the crankcase therefore pressurising the engine slightly, this forces oil out of any weak area's and mainly from breather pipes such as into air intake.
Maybe a good engine oil flush and quality oil replacement with filter might help but in the long run you'll have to live with it.
If when warm you take the pipe from the engine to the Air filter off does is blow blueish vapour? if it does then you could filter it away from the intake to save clogging.
Hope this FixYa's problem?
