Turbo BOV I'm having a problem with putting the standard BOV back on to my 1999 Forester GT. The one i fitted only required one small hose where as the old one has the two. Where do they go?

The small one is a vacum hose which opens the bov when the throttle shuts off, im guessing the one on there vents into the atmosphere and makes the pshhh noise.Your original one has a larger hose aswell which plumbs back into the intake pipe somewhere( there is probably a bung of some sort plugging the hole unless its and aftermarket pipe).i hope this helps.

I can not put gas in my 1999 subaru forester. i have to go very slow it takes for ever. what is wrong with this car.

They shove these anti siphon tubes down in the fuel hose and they get crimped some times. It's made of plastic and is flexible. You can try to grab the fuel hose and squeeze it to find the crimp. Then take a pair of pliers and try to open the crimped part back up. Some times this works, some times you have to pull the hose and cut the crimp out. Also the is a tip over valve at the tank where the hose attaches. It could be lodged. On this try smacking the tank at the opening/hose. A rubber mallet works great for this as you don't want to break the tank.

I have a 95 eagle talon tsi awd, when i push the hard and the boost gauge hits the top for a split second the car jerks. feels like something slips of engine loses power. also i had a stereo put in my car...

Replace your waste gate on the turbo charger. It may be weak and opening up before your at full boost, common to go bad after a few years from the heat of the turbo. Good luck and keep me posted.

Installing aftermarket bov

if ur not changing ur turbo DONT TUCH THE WASTE GATE OR ITS HOSES!!!!! that part is only to reroute the xsaust gazzes to slow the turbo when the throttle is closed, as for the BOV or blow off valve mount it somewhere on ur pipeing that goes to your INTAKE of the motor it is there so when ur throttle snaps closed when u come off the gas pedel to shift, the pressurized air from the turbo can go out and away from the throttle usaly after the intercooler and before the throlltle body if u got the room for it also depending on the install and turbo setup, and computer, the car might tend to stall (MABY!) Depending on what kind of air metering you car uses, will dictate which is the best form of BOV, whether recurculated, or vented.

As for placement, the best place is usually as close to the throttle body as possible, that way as soon as the throttle plate closes air is evacuated...but having said that if you are recirulating, its a bit more plumbing to get that to work right...but anywhere AFTER the intercooler is good... and for the vacume hose any free vacume nipple on the intake manafold u might find one with a rubber cap or somthing of a blocker, if no nipple is availble buya Y type fitting at an auto store to doubble a used one HOPE THIS HELPS

1999 forester rear window washer does not spray water

The nozzle could be plugged, pull the hose off if you can get to it and see if you get anything. If you do, you can try and blow the clog back with the hose still off. good luck, Chuck
