Australian Car Repair Issues? Ask an Auto Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi Frank im stew ,a mechanic here in australia,can yo be a bit more specific 'what' exactly fell into cyl 5 please,debris of any sort,in an engine cylinder,particularly a multi valve head like yours,usually means valve damage at the very least,would have zero compression on 5 to prove it,thanks,stew,i will follow up question a couple of times ..free..before i ask for a rating, thanks stew
Frank,i havent been paid at all,justanswer may have taken a fee,but i dont get anything if the answer is not accepted/rated,the butterflys you talk about are part of a two speed intake manifold,many engines use a similar system,check your compression..this will prove the head/engine is damaged,if you want a free forum to argue theory over fact, just answer is not the place,i'm a busy mechanic trying to help people for a fee,not a you tuber with too much spare time,p.s.check your compression before replying
With your No.5 at TDC compression, and some air pressure, you may here the source of the leak, through the intake manifold, or out the tailpipe.
Some small loss through the oil cap.
Generally, any solid object bends a valve or two.
Do you need any further help?
I hope my advice has been of assistance to you.
That is the correct firing for your engine, common for many v6 engines.
1 and 4 as pair is a sign..
Sounds like you are getting there.
Yes, that is the pairing.
1 and 4, 2 and 5, 3 and 6.
Are you together now nearly ready to start her up now?
