oh no, whats goin on
 
so I removed some of the FMIC piping to apply the spray on bed liner stuff over the metal I trimmed. Put everything back together. start the car and let it warm up while I posted in the "what did you do your your fourth gen today" thread. come back outside, get in the car. and pull out of the driveway and get into boost to make sure I don't have any leaks. I hit full boost, 18, and then the motor died. Really quickly.

Pulled over, tried to turn the car over again. Started right up, and died. If I tap the gas with my foot while its on, it will stay running for a few more seconds and then die. I'm trying to retrace my steps here.

All of the piping is on as it should be. The car hit full boost as I was pulling out of my driveway. There are no funny noises or CELs on when I get the car running, until it eventually dies seconds later. Car has oil in it.

Check ALL the pipes and couplers high and low.

paintpollz 02-19-2012 04:11 PM

paintpollz 02-19-2012 04:25 PM

dammit. I'm so tired of being a jackass. piping popped off the core. Just wish it would run so I could get it back to the house. ugh

If this ever happens when you are in the middle of no where - you can disconnect the maf and the car will run fine - just don't drive it hard.

Great trick when you need to limp it somewhere.

thanks spec, I was thinkin that might do the trick. I'm gonna do this tomorrow and limp it into the driveway. i cant believe i didnt tighten down that t clamp, jesus.

Dug the motorcycle out of the back of the garage to get home. it had been sitting for 5 months. cranked for about 20 seconds until the carbs filled up with gas. fired right up. love that damn thing.

So you had to play....did you ever hear the saying, if it ain't broke don't fix it.

So it sounds like you got it running again.

i know i know:rolleyes: Mike (m sprank) put up a thread on how he sprayed the trimmed metal with that stuff so he inspired me to do it. Its a good idea, but I still blame him:lol:

Next thing you need to learn is don't screw with the car during the winter. It's to cold out it breaks down...

BAC5.2 02-20-2012 04:36 PM

Bailing on dinner with the girlfriend's parents because a car you work on yourself broke down does not leave a good impression on them. Trust me.

^thats a whole different thread...and if your married the same thing applies. Car maybe fun for us but seems "dumb" to them when reliability comes into play, good luck

Cut, clean, clamp, tack weld, weld, clean up weld & then paint.
