I have a 1997 Nissan Pathfinder and the right intake manifold is cracked?

December 23rd, 2010 · No Comments

I do not know how big the crack is. If the crack is small, is it ok not to fix it? Will there be any problem to the car? If the crack is big and I do not fix it, any problem arise? I have a 1997 Pathfinder but it has only 64,000 miles. It is an old car but with low mileage, that’s why I am debating whether to fix it and keep the car or trade in. I am afraid of more problems arise since this is an old car.

Chevrolet V8 2brl choke spring?

December 22nd, 2010 · No Comments

I’ve been scratching my head, I bought a new choke spring for chevy 307 V8 with 2 barrel rochester carb on it. The truck had a manual choke as original equip. I bought a carb that has a vacuum choke pull off and needed the choke spring to make the choke close. This is the choke that sits in the recess of the intake manifold and a rod runs to the choke plate.

The problem that I have it that it looks like the choke spring will pull the choke opened and not closed when cold. which is 180 from what it is supose to do. The choke spring only fits one way. So I’m sure about it’s installation what i’m not sure about is which way the choke spring operates. I believe that if it gets hot is is supose to expand and pull the choke opened, and when cold it’s contracts and pulls choke closed. Or maybe it;s the oppisite. I’m confused..

Improving Internal Combustion with Direct Injection

August 17th, 2010 · No Comments

Direct injection engines — found in vehicles ranging from sports cars to snowmobiles — are becoming more common as manufacturers look to improve the internal combustion engine by squeezing out more horsepower, less emissions and better fuel efficiency.
Several GM engine families presently use Spark Ignited Direct Injection (SIDI) technology, including the 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine in the Saturn SKY and Pontiac Solstice and the 3.6L V6 engine in the Cadillac CTS. Some industry projections indicate that in a few years, one in six engines will be built with direct injection. The numbers illustrate the value of the technology: the 300 HP 3.6L V6 in the new Chevy Camaro is rated at an estimated 29 MPG highway. Direct injection refers to the fact that the fuel is injected directly into the combustion chamber.

Acura GSR Whirlwind Intake Manifold Instructions

December 8th, 2009 · No Comments

Preparation for Installation
1. Make sure that there are no metal chips or other debris inside the manifold. Check that all bolts will run freely into any tapped holes.
2. Note that while this manifold makes provision for all vacuum lines and other brackets or parts that attached to the stock manifold, the vacuum ports originally on the front side of the manifold have been moved to the back for a cleaner appearance. This will require the use of longer vacuum hoses in some cases.
3. Disconnect battery and drain coolant.
4. Mark and identify all hoses and valves.
5. Check the condition of all hoses, gaskets and o-rings. Replace as needed. Use a new intake gasket. Honda #17105-P72-004.
