CHECK ENGINE LIGHT IS ON


This Code is about the RPM not matching the idle settings. A Vacuum leak is tricking the engine into making adjustments based on a lean O2 reading. Correspondingly the O2 sensors are demanding more fuel to eliminate the lean readings. Then the engine realizes the amount of air going by the MAF is not matching the IAC settings(Because the air leak is increasing rpm) and blames the IAC which is a Code P1506.

With the engine running, use an old spray bottle and fill it with water. Spray the seams, vacuum lines and solenoids until you notice a change in RPM. Lastly, spray the EGR pod if the diaphragm is torn it will leak vacuum.

Wherever you find the leak, fix it, then clear the computer and drive it.

Leaking water pump audi 80 2.6l v6


Grant, you need to check if the pump is ok with your model engine, not just the car model number, these cars were fitted with at least four
different engine variants that i am aware of.
i don't think you should attempt to fit it if you don't know at least that much, sometimes the cambelt has to be removed first, thats a whole
different kind of level of experise required.
good luck

Do I chanage water pump when changing timing belt on 2002 lexus GS300?


Hi there,

Most Japanese designed engines have an internally mounted water pump, usually driven by the cambelt.

When we talk in terms of cam design, there are two types of engines: a) Interference and b) non-interference.

An interference egine means - if the cambelt were to break whilst engine is running, there will be major internal engine damage.
A non-interference engine means - if the cambelt were to break whilst engine is running, there will NOT be any serious internal damage to the engine.

Note: the GS300 engine (3.0L 6-cyl) is considered a Non-Interference engine.

So, one of the most critical compenents which MUST be changed, is the cambelt itself. Most manufacturers recommend changing this belt every 90,000 - 100,000km's (80,000 miles). If you have a non-interference engine, this period is not as critical, but should still be changed soon, to avoid the inconvenience of a breakdown whilst travelling.

The 2nd critical compenent is the Water Pump. The worst possible outcome of a failed waterpump, is your engine will suddenly drain of all coolant, resulting in serious overheating, causing serious internal damage to your engine.

Although there is no specified time to change the waterpump, a waterpump endures wear and tear like any component and lifespan can reduce rapidly beyond 100,000km's (80,000 mles). As the waterpump is situated next to the cambelt, it is a general rule to change out both cambelt and waterpump at the same time.

The majority of the cost to replace the cambelt, is in labor (ie opening the engine etc). If you choose to replace only one of these components, you will need to be prepared to pay for same procedure again in future, to replace the 2nd component.

Therefore, it can be more economical in the long term, to have both components changed together.

Hope this helps...

Coolant is leaking when the engine is warm. It is dripping near the sump gasket adjacent to the water pump.


sound like the water pump is about to give up,when replacing,fit a new cambelt/tensioner at the same time as this will save you taking it all apart again.....

If a waterpump siezed on a Daewoo Lanos would that break the camb


Yes. I think. A lot of cars have the water pump under the timing cover and you change the pump when you change the timing belt. They usually don't seize though, they just leak. Did you run it after it broke? How long before the engine quit? Did it start knocking? When you go to change the belt, look for a broken cam, or other damage that the broken belt would have caused. Some engines are free running, meaning they will turn over no problem when the belt goes, other engines are intermittent, meaning the valves hit the tops of the pistons and cause considerable damage. Find out before you go too far. Hope this helps.

It sounds like you have a partial blockage in the cooliing system if it stayes at regular operating temperature at lower speeds. Placing it in first or second gear and driving at hiway speed RPM's will cause the the same temperature problem if this is the case.

Jetta TDI Coolant leak from behind tming belt.


hi from uk from the symptom/location you say water leak is coming from ? this is most likely to be the water pump that is leaking ? considering age/milage ? this is not uncommon however as the water pump is driven by cambelt this unfortunately means you will have to replace the cambelt and tensioner as well as the water pump it is policy never to use old belt/tensioner once disturbed for obvious reasons i'm sure you have heard stories of result of cambelt failure? and the serious damage caused to engine ? also if leak is serious? this will deteriate c/belt so advice you consider renewal asap cambeltkit +tensioner in uk casts approx under £45 and w/pump a little less you can obtain from most good motor factors/superstores avoid dealers this job is not too difficult diy with haynes or w/shop manual if you follow instructions and have tool kit hope this helps?

CAMBELT FAILURE ON A RENAULT MASTER DCI 120 2004 MODEL, IS THERE LIKELY TO BE ENGINE DAMAGE?


Definitely. If you're lucky then only the valves are damaged and that can be repaired by removing and overhauling the cylinder head. The water pump will and cambelt tensioners will also need to be replaced as they're relatively cheap and if they fail after repair the cambelt must be removed again. If you're unlucky then the piston crowns have been damaged or even the cylinder liners and this requires a complete engine rebuild. If only the valves are affected then the engine can usually be successfully repaired at a reasonable cost, but it's vital to get the head checked for cracks and flatness before reassembly as the stress on the combustion chambers and valve guides caused by a belt failure can warp or crack the head.

If time is money for you, then it may be cheaper to fit a good used engine. Note that there are no cheap "reconditioned" engines regardless of whatever worthless guarantees are offered. If you go for a reconditioned unit then if you're in the UK make sure that the engine supplier is a member of the Federation of Engine Remanufacturers (FER). Don't just rely on the logo on signs and stationery, actively check with the FER as some dodgy outfits have no qualms about claiming to ber members when they're not.

A good used engine will cost around £160 or so, make sure that you can hear the engine running before it's removed from the scrapped donor vehicle. It's cheap, but a risky choice and you'll need to add the cost of an immediate precautionary cambelt and water pump change.

A "reconditioned" engine means nothing. It might only have been degreased, repainted and had an oil and filter change. Recon is often a con.

A remanufactured engine will have been cleaned and then carefully tested before being largely or even completely dismantled. It's then rebuilt to precise tolerances using new or remanufactured parts. Expect to pay around half to two thirds of the cost of a brand new engine; they're not cheap but they are far cheaper than a new engine and will be supplied with a really worthwhile time/distance warranty.

I hope that you get your van fixed soon and that the damage isn't too serious. If my reply has helped then please return the favour by rating my answer.
