I had a complete set of new seals installed last fiday and the pump appeared to be nice and dry? While sitting at the starting line for the district 37 grand prix last Saturday with the bike idling I looked down and fluid started spitting out of the weep hole?? I turned off the motor and it eventually stopped leaking. I went ahead and raced and it leaked a small amount more throughout the day??? Any ideas?? other than maybe it was a bad seal? or a bad installation from my local shop??James is probably right. The stock o-rings KTM sells for the carrier are 2-3 sizes smaller than they should be. I bought a bag of the corect (IMHO) o-rings. When you stretch an o-ring it gets thinner the further you stretch it the thinner it gets until it breaks. Since the o-ring is stretched thinner on the carrier it is not compressed properly it looses some of it sealing surface and can't hold the pressure as well. I think this is the reason most of the newly replaces water pump seals leak. That's why it will start leaking as the motor heats up and will continue to leak until the motor cools off and the pressure is gone from the cooling system. To test this warm the motor up and note how long it takes before the coolant starts leaking. Let the bike cool and then remove the radiator cap and warm the engine up if there's no leak then the o-rings are probably bad if it starts leaking then the seals are more likely the problem.,,,

Passat 2001 with codes P0012,P0340 it runs fine the turbo kicks in no problem I originally found some broken vaccum line and replaced them but the codes still return


P0340 - Camshaft Position Sensor Trouble
Your cam timing timing is off and the sensor is fine. They are very simple sensors...it's just a magnet...and magnets don't go bad. Check the timing. Incorrect allocation means that the camshaft isnt where the computor thinks it should be at any given time. This could be casued by the base engine timing being off by a tooth or by a problem in the camshaft adjuster.


P0012 Camshaft A: Advance Setpoint not Reached
The code P0012 can be set by the following concerns: Faulty cam adjuster, Faulty cam adjuster solenoid, Low oil pressure, Sludged oil passages and Sticky camshaft.

The variable cam timing uses engine oil pressure diverted to the adjuster mechanism by a solenoid duty cycled by the PCM. Low oil pressure or severe oil sludging can affect camshaft timing operation. Always check oil level and condition when camshaft adjustment codes are present.

Using a full function Volkswagen compatible scan tool enter address word 01 (Engine). Function 08 (Read Measuring Value Blocks) and Display Group 091 (Power Enhancement Camshaft Adjustment).

Observe the 4th display field "Active Camshaft Adjustment Angle" With the engine at idle. The 4th display field should read between -3.0 to +6.0 degrees KW if the camshaft is in the normal unadvanced position. Any other reading at idle indicates that the camshaft is shifted from the normal unadvanced position

Accelerate the vehicle from a standstill in 1st gear using wide-open throttle and observe the display in field 4 again. Under heavy acceleration the display should read between +16.0 to +25.0 degrees KW. This indicates that the camshaft has shifted to the full advance position.

If the display in field 4 does not change from the values in test step 2 or if the display changes but does not reach a minimum of +16.0 degrees KW (i.e. between +6.0 and +16.0 degrees KW), the camshaft timing adjuster mechanism is not advancing the camshaft.

Failure to advance the camshaft could be caused by a faulty cam adjuster, a faulty cam adjuster solenoid, low oil pressure, sludged oil passages, or a sticky camshaft.


Hope this helps (remember to rating this free answer and leave ue some testimonial comment)

How do you put a yzf250 03 camsharft into a yzf250 01
