Question about 1986 Volvo 760

Open Question

I've problem with my twin 40 DCNF turbo !

I made my vw golf mk2 turbo last week, And I've to say I used my twin Weber 40 DCNF 12 to deliver my fuel, so now I've problem with fuel delivery at full throttle, At normal RPM and begging of the boost it works ok, but when RPM goes beyond 6000 my A/F ratio gauge goes to LEAN part and I can feel the car is running out of fuel, This problem starts at second gear and continues on other gears, I also have to say I used the 4bar fuel pump and Adjustable fuel pressure regulator but I can not adjust it to solve this problem, If I change the regulator setting I'll loose the low RPM rev, For more information I've to say My boost is set on 9psi, If you think I've to change the webber settings or main jet size or fuel pump and regulator so please let me know .

no, you shouldnt have to clean it every week. it sounds like your pcv system is clogged. you have to replace the pcv box and hoses. and clean out all of the gunk clogging up the ports in the block. and it is probably a good idea to replace the intake manifold gaskets and the injector seals. also there is a banjo bolt on the bottom of the intake manifold that gets clogged up so clean the banjo bolts and all attached hoses

What are the correct jets for a vw 2L 8V engine with weber 40 side drafts hi. i have a vw 2L 8V engine (stock standard) and i have a set of weber 40 side drafts on it. i please need to know what are the...

VW what car?
what year>?
no model, no year,
no joy.
are these custom carbs? if yes, NO ONE CAN answer that.
Jets are tuned for YOUR engine alone.
if all this is true,then get the weber book, huh? and read it.
it tells you how to tune any weber, and its not simple. not at all
the webers are the most difficult to tune but on the other hand they are the best. (less compromise , makes great racing carbs).
there are on line weber tunning pages, why not google that.

in the old days, we'd use spark plug readings for full week end (wasted ) to tune any custom carb,,

fast forward, 21st century, we have nice wide bad 0xy sensor tool.
its about, $150 now.
we put a 02 exhaust bug on the exhaust headers, (both if v8)
and we tune the carb. using this tool , in about 1hour.
way less for only idle , idle is very simple NO ENGINE LOAD.
I set it to stoich and drive.
end story, unless , issues driving or up hills.

on stock carbs the idle has a mixture screw.
we set it to max RPM and the unscrew 1/2 turn (rich)
not all carbs some use an air screw. (backwards)
contrats, the most complex question ever asked on fixya.
join a car forum for your car, then find custom carb section
then ask there. bingo,, must maybe 1 other person did this.
but i can tell you if the engine is different , with custom exhaust
all the tuning must be done over.
eg: custom cam, milled heads, exhaust, bored cylinders. or ported inakes. all change DEMAND for fuel and must be tuned to match it.
same is true with EFI. (speed density) but not air density EFI.
see.... ?

Hi, i've been told the turbo on my 2006 !.8 Golf TDI has blown and need a new one. How much would a new one cost please? Thanks

Best place to start is eBay vw turbos can range from $250.00 to $700.00 but it depends on your model and engine size. You can look up vw golf websites and I believe you can even by them cheaper through club web sites

Vw golf diesel very sluggish after 3000 rpm

I would start with changing the fuel filter, with the tow truck that work on every day, I service them every two weeks, and the fuel filters come back full of grim the deisel fuel filters have to get changed more often with the fuel going around, try and stay away from pride gas stations, they have caused 8,000 in repairs to my trucks.
