On jeep?

sure , valve grind, vast ways to mess up.

are you taking the whole job or just the head job/?

head, pressure checked and warpage checked and corrected.

engine deck checked for warp, .002" max?

wrong head gasket,

china junk gaskets. from fleabay.

gasket upside down blocking oil holes.

reUsing TTY bolts, bad.

not checking compression first be fore first start

and then cold cranking it , no fuel pressure, to see if you have

top end oiling? if yes, its good, then kick the tires and light the fires.

Jaguar x 2.0 Diesel Problem no power alot of black smoke coming out as you drive , now i have oil on rad and all over battery


run fault codes and look for EGR valve and pcv valve faults. Black smoke is unburnt diesel so it may be the injectors need attention. If it is a turbo then check the oil lines to the turbo and check turbo operation as it may not be producing air pressure for the engine.

2006 f350 6.0 powerstroke diesel missing. help


there is no wastegate on a 6.0l turbo. its a variable geometry turbocharger and doesn't need it. i have never seen a turbocharger cause a misfire, the turbocharger is most likely not your problem. if you didn't clean the intake out when replacing the egr valve there is a really good chance that the egr is bad again. also, a bad egr cooler can cause repeat egr failure. also, fuel injector control module is a common cause for misfire

Jaguar x type 2.0 turbo diesel 2006. Car was smoking really badly in all gears black like sut, really rough idling. And sounds like it has breathing problems almost like it's not running on all cylinders....


I have exactly the same problem on my x type 2.0 turbo diesel 2006. Problem occurred all of a sudden while driving, was told to change turbo and EGR valve, but same problem. Took to dealers and they advised because it has so many error faults coming from the engine it would be cheaper to change the engine. Will be trying this unless I can get some other advise.

1993 mitsubishi pajero exceed-intercooler turbo 2800 diesel engine 4m40


Hi, I have a Pajero 2800 Turbo 1995 Auto. It has developed a bad oil leak somewhere around the front right hand side (from the front) where there seems to be oil spraying over the pipes, etc. Can't see it happening with the engine running and have cleaned the engine off but still can't see where it comes from. It has emptied the sump! Any ideas?
Cheers,
Rob.
