Re: 166 v6 turbo starting/running problem
Its a 2.0 V6 turbo, petrol. I sorted out no start problem. My fuel gauge lies or the fuel pump cant reach the fuel to pump it. I filled it 1/3 and it strted without any problem and runs ok.
Idle RMP still jump about 700-900 when warm, i know it wont idle like a bee cause its a v6, but i think it could run better.
Also, i found a leak. Theres an air tube(the big one) going from the air filter(and MAF later on) to throttle body, and theres a smaller one (like 2,5-3 cm diameter, that is like an inch or 1,5 just after MAF), it was glued and the glue broke, theres a smal crack. Did try to duct tape it, but its really hard to reach without unmounting any other stuff and i didnt have much time. So i just taped it, but with a little or no effect. The tape keeps coming off.
I went to an engine diagnosis, they hook it up and there were two errors, one said about MAF and the other was about lambda probe. They guy said these can cause/affect each other. Maybe its the crack after the MAF that throws an error.
Will investigate more.
