The car will not free rev over 3000 as its self protecting. This engine is very prone to air leaks and oil leaks around the inlet manifold and top engine hoses. these faults can have a great effect on engine performance. Get the fault codes read and the top end of engine inspected for leaks etc. These engines are pretty reliable mechanically and a major internal failure is very unlikely if you have maintained a reasonable level of engine oil service etc. Good luck - hope this helps

Glow plug troubleshooting


Connect a volt meter to earth and glow plug supply wire, turn ignition on, should get a battery voltage reading for about 10 seconds, if not the timer relay is not supplying power. If you get voltage, remove the glow plugs and test with an ohm meter for resistance, (no reading? open circuit, not working). Heater relay is a heavy duty relay with a 60amp battery supply, generally in the bulk head area. (DON'T DIRECT FEED THE GLOW PLUG! could burn them out)

Subaru legacy 92 unstable RPM


Have you checked your MAF/MAP sensor, or your fuel pressure or fuel pressure regulator. Are your throwing any codes at all? I would also look at your Cam & Crank sensors. Good Luck!

Yesterday my 1993 chevy s-10 blazer was driving fine but when i cut it off and went in the house for a second and went to crank it back up it wouldn't start it turnsover when i turn the key and its getting...


If you are sure you have a spark to at least half of the plugs, and there is no reason to suspect that the engine was being used abnormally just before it was shut down then it is most likely flooded or you ran out of gas.
Black smoke from the tailpipe indicates that the engine is getting a fuel mixture abnormally high in fuel (flooding). White smoke generally indicates not enough fuel.
Unless your engine is damaged or the timing changed, your engine will run if it has the following: proper fuel mixture, air, a spark to at least half of the spark plugs, and compression.
For a "flooded" engine there are two routes. Wait until the excess fuel has had time to dissipate or hold the accelerator to the floor while attempting to start. Be prepared to let off the accelerator about halfway as soon as it starts. And then down to about 1500 rpm. You do not want to over rev the engine. But holding it at about 1500 rpms for about 3-5 seconds will help flush out any excess fuel. You can then slowly return it to idle speed.

Volvo s40 white smoke and jerking, can it be plug coil problem?


It could be a coil. Or it could be a fuel injector. Also. Record your gas mileage by filling the car up and recording the number of gallons that the gas tank took. Reset the trip odometer and drive as normal. At the next fill record how much fuel again went into the gas tank. divide the gallons of gas at the second fill with the miles driven and that will be your mpg average. If your getting anything lower than 19 it's probably a fuel problem and should be taken to a different mechanic for a second opinion.

THROTTLE BODY needs to be taken apart and cleaned. Hand clean the sensor and idle valve, they are electric do not soak them, check them also, Idle valve likes to stick and position sensor likes to go out. HUNT

Turns over but won't start


pull out one of the spark plugs plug it in to plug wire run a jumper wire to the body or hook of the plug to ground the jumper must go to a suitable ground. pull out pcv hose to prevent car from starting have an assistant turn over the engine while you check for a strong blue or purple spark if the spark looks white or yellow there is a weak ignition condition and this must be adressed, bad ignition module bad cap and wires, etc. do the cap and rotor first if the spark is weak. If there is a strong spark sometimes holding the gas pedal to the floor while turning over the car for no more than 10 seconds starts stubborn motors do not let up on gas if car begins to start not until the motor starts to rev up.

Oily spark plug,changed plugs now car smokes


You changed 6 coils, but you didn't change spark plugs? The new coils give strong spark to burn off resisdues from your old plugs plus what ever left inside the combustion due to bad old coils causing smoke and bad ordor. Change all new spark plugs so you can have good ignition to burn off all junks inside combustion chambers. Smokes are at the beginning, but it will go away after less than 10 minutes.
If it is not going away you may have other problemS:
Rich mixture causing engine check light come on.
Check if engine oil level.
Check if your coolant level.
Open the oil cap to see if you have milky stuff. If there is milky stuff then you have bad head gasket.
Let me know what is coming out so others can learn from your experience. Good luck.
