07 legacy gt wagon EJ20X 140,xxx kms. Every few weeks or so when giving it some boot it smokes heavily *white* for afew seconds and the coolant level will also go down by about 1-2 inches. little bit of of pink dried up fluid around the radiator cap and cap for the expansion tank but no where near as much as it’s losing. The car isn’t overheating and it sits a tad under half on the temp gauge and drives normally coolant does smell abit sweet. Other than that the car is never driven hard it just takes me back and forth to work literally a 4 minute drive then to Wellington from marton once a week and back. Worth noting a P0731 code came up this morning. any help is appreciated.
Hi all, need a bit of help with this one please. I have a 2003 NZ new GTB, EJ20X, all stock. I had a new engine installed at 28200km as apparently a con threw and punched a hole in the side of the block, oil and water everywhere. Got all the required stuff (cambelt, pump, plugs) done at the same time. I'm having an issue that started before the engine was replaced, where I get a sort of sputtering and "wet farting" on take off. Total loss of power and requires throttle off then back to stop it. It's gotten to the point now where it's almost dangerous to drive and I just can't rely on it to accelerate as it should. I've put more $ into this than I had planned and while it needs to be resolved, I don't really want to keep "investing". I like the car, love it almost but enough is enough perhaps. Any one have any ideas, experience with this and simple non expensive fixes? I've read maybe MAF sensor, fuel pump, so many things... car does not show any error codes. I'm running BTSSM on a tablet so can log stuff but don't know enough to read the logs and decipher any issues. Any help out there? Cheers in advance
Right so, it seems my turbo has gone. Just had an oil change like last week, but apparently it's toast. Not been driven hard at all. 2nd one now. Anyone got a spare VF38 kicking around? Waiting in agonised apprehension for a price from mechanic...
Hey guys,I am wondering if there is an idle control valve on an EJ20X like on the older model EJs (like my EJ20R). If not, is there a way to raise the idle slightly to avoid a vibration at low revs.The EJ20X in question does have an electronic throttle body and 5-speed auto if that helps at all.Thanks in advance
