SOURCE: IS it necessary to change oil after DEflooding?

when an engine is "flooded" too much fuel is put in the cylinders or in this case the rotor chambers. piston rings and apex seals(in rotary engines) can seal oil, intake and exhaust gases, but gasoline in it's liquid form can seap past the piston rings and apex seals and dilute the oil to the point where the viscosity is thinned out too much which can cause wear and possible damage to internal engine parts. so yes, an oil change is recommended and also change the oil filter while your at it.

Testimonial: "i now think it was necessary. i think the flooding of my rx8 will probably happen again. i wish i knew how to prevent it."

Doubtful, the pcm controls security in you vehicle. If you replace the pcm then it would likely need to be reprogramed.

Codes P2270& P2272 after oil change check engine light on drove under 100 miles both O2 sensors bad .Could shop have caused this somehow??? Maybe banging them or something ?


make sure they are plugged in tight Definition of Diagnostic Trouble Code P2270 Category: Powertrain Definition: O2 Sensor Signal Biased/Stuck Lean Bank 1 Sensor 2Note: This definition of P2270 is applied to all manufacturers

P2270 - O2 Sensor Signal Biased/Stuck Lean Bank 1 Sensor 2 Comments ' Add Yours
Possible causes
- Faulty Rear Heated Oxygen Sensor Bank 1
- Rear Heated Oxygen Sensor Bank 1 harness is open or shorted
- Rear Heated Oxygen Sensor Bank 1 circuit poor electrical connection
- Exhaust gas leaks Help with this
When is the code detected?
The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) detected the HO2S12 sensor has reported a lean condition for an extended period during an intrusive test
Symptoms
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- High Fuel Consumption
- Excessive Smoke from Exhaust
P2270 Description
The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) supplies a voltage of about 450 mV between the HO2S high and low signal circuits. The oxygen sensor varies the voltage over a range from about 1,000 mV when the exhaust is rich, down through about 10 mV when the exhaust is lean.
The PCM monitors and stores the heated oxygen sensor (HO2S) voltage information. The PCMevaluates the HO2S voltage samples in order to determine the amount of time the HO2S voltage was out of range. The PCM compares the stored HO2S voltage samples taken within each sample period and determines if majority of the samples are out of the operating range.

My dashboard lights dont work


Have someone check fuse under dashboard. Some dashboards have lights wired in series. If one light goes out, they all go out.

Oil light is on


Check oil level.Check oil pressure with a mechanical gauge to ensure oil pump is working. Do not run the engine for any period longer than is necessary to do this test. If you have oil pressure then the fault will probably be in the oil pressure sender unit . Replace the unit after checking that the lead is not earthing out before the sender unit

Ford focus oil on the threads of spark plugs


Well, "Catalytic Converter Below Threshold" is not going to be inexpensive to fix no matter HOW you do it. Catalytic Converters are EXPENSIVE - PERIOD. This is why I get frustrated with people that do not mainain their vehicles properly and do stuff like ignoring check engine lights until they are forced to get an emissions inspection. Then there are others that go out and buy those cheap little generic code readers just so they can keep turning the light off without performing the repairs necessary to actually FIX the problem. Or they wait to change their oil when the low oil pressure warning light comes on...happens all the time... then they always get upset when you give them an estimate for the repairs.

If your spark plugs are getting oil fouled, it could be several different things ranging anywhere from piston rings, to valve seals, to something as simple as a malfunctioning PCV system. That must be properly diagnosed.

However, you are not going to repair the catalyst without spending some big bucks to replace it. You can go ahead and replace it with one of those cheap, undersized, aftermarket replacements if you really think that will save you any money, but you will just be doing it again in probably less than a year and you will not have saved anything.

Sorry, NOBODY wants an expensive bill, but in many cases, it simply cannot be avoided. When it comes to catalytic converters, CHEAPER is NOT BETTER!

I have a 2006 Ford Explorer. The wrench light (powertrain) comes on periodically, and the truck will no go beyond 40 miles for 3-4 minutes. What is the porblem


when it's on go to autozone & have them read codes.

The wrench light reports issues that the normal check engine light doesn't and you may need the dealer to read those codes with thei special equipment.

2006 F-150 w/5.4 was 4 quarts low on oil...No warnings on dash..oil was changed around 5000 miles ago checked it about 1week ago was fine...any solutions


First off, dont rely on on-dash warning lights,if vehicle has an oil gauge,check it upon startup,then again at operating temperature.If vehicle does NOT have an oil gauge, this is a relatively inexpensive part that you can install that will save you untold time,MONEY,worry,and problems.... WELL worth the money....did you subject yourvehicle to any high stress situations [towing,etc.]during the oil loss period? how long a period of time/mileage for the oil loss?Have you performed a compression check on the cylinders? Worn oil rings? How many miles on vehicle?

My 2004 f250 after it sits it wont start. the wait to start light only comes on for bout1 to 2 sec. the only way i start it is to plug it up at night what is my problem.


The wait to start light always comes on for at least 1 sec, if it goes off early it must think the engine is warm.

My guess is you have a faulty engine oil temp sensor that is telling the pcm that it is already warm. The only way to know for sure is to read the info with a scan tool.

Glow Plug System: Description and Operation
GLOW PLUG SYSTEM
The 6.0L diesel engine uses a glow plug system that preheats air in the combustion chamber to improve cold engine starting.
The system consists of:
- glow plugs.
- glow plug control module.
- powertrain control module (PCM).
- engine oil temperature (EOT) sensor.
- barometric pressure sensor (BARO sensor).
The glow plug monitor system is part of the On-Board Diagnostics II (OBD II) System.
The glow plug system is electronically controlled by the powertrain control module. If the oil temperature is below 55°C (131°F) the powertrain
control module will energize the glow plugs immediately after the key is placed in the ON position. Then, depending on the readings from the engine
oil temperature (EOT) sensor and the barometric pressure (BARO) sensor, the powertrain control module determines how long the glow plugs will be
on.
The glow plugs are located in the cylinder heads, under the glow plug buss bar.
The glow plugs are self-regulating. If the engine oil temperature is above 55°C (131°F), the powertrain control module will bulb-check the WAIT TO
START lamp but not energize the glow plug relay.
The glow plug ON time varies from 0-120 seconds depending on battery voltage, engine oil temperature and barometric pressure.
The glow plug control monitor (GPCM) system is designed to find failed glow plugs or failed wiring in the glow plug system.

With all that said, you need to have it taken to either the Ford dealer or transmission shop to pinpoint the exact cause of the problem. Either way, it's likely that the transaxle is going to require removal and disassembly to repair, if the TR sensor isn't the cause. You may print this answer and bring it into the servicing tech, in order to expedidite the diagnosis process. Hope this helps.

hi, sounds like valve stem seals are worn allowing oil to seap into combustion chamber, especially when parked up for long periods ie overnight, this is not drastic,more embarassing eh ?
Its quite a job and not cheap to do, if your not filling the street with smoke then dont worry too much. But it will very slowly get worse. All the best,Phil

Need to fill up the oil


You can fill the oil down the dipstick, it goes to the same spot and some vehicles just use this to fill the oil, I'm not quite sure on this car but if you can't find it then I would give a 90% chance that it is expected to be filled from the dipstick tube. You will need a funnel,

Please let me know if you need any further help with this.

thanks
