Re: INTAKE manifold, WHY does it get cloged if its just air (Island Noel)

they probably got one,around 15-20$,get a 1 piece valve cover gasket kit too,if you got dough,that helps cut down on the amount of oil getting to the breather pipe http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: INTAKE manifold, WHY does it get cloged if its just air (TurboniumHillfolk)

ya, i picked up a valve cover gasket kit the other day, just having trouble getting the timing belt cover off to get the valve cover off. but i think i am going to phone bow wow this am to ask about the cam shield , maybe get to work on it tomorrow? as its pissing rain outright now, and pick up some carb cleaner so clean out the intake from all the oil that is collecting. anyone else in here on the island?

ooh,,never use carbcleaner,!!!!!!!!!!!!!you will cause a runaway,or damage ringlands,,,,,,,,never never,,,,my car was running the other night,hood up, i was spraying paint,close to the air filter,,it got all cackley,,and the idle came up too,like 1500 rpms,,,just use wd 40,or something like that,,brake cleaner will burn out your nose,,use wd,or liquid wrench,,,,don t use much ,,wet it down and blot it up quickly,,,,,never use flammable substances near a diesel,,,,,ive heard of diesels running away, down in mines,if they hit a naturalgas pocket while they are mining ,,,some diesels like 2 stroke detroits have an air intake cutoff,,,,,,,ooh never never use carbcleaner,,,,,if ya did,disconnect the glowplugs,before trying to start it,,,or remove the glow plugs altoghether and crank it over ,itll kill your piston ring lands,,never use starting fluid either ok??? http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

I dont mean on the car , i mean for cleaning the parts off the car, like the intake and stuff befor it gets put back on the motor , and on to clean the turbo, but everything will be air dryed in the sun befor it gets put back together, that should be ok , right
