It wasn't anything I did, I was just driving on the highway at about 75 to 80 mph a cruise. I was getting off my exit and I went to do my casual downshift and got a deeeep *** sputtering sound, then she stalled. I am running a compression test and a trick olddragger taugh me on here to confirm if the seals are blown. I threw 4 codes.

1st- catalyst defincency
2nd-running too lean
3rd-another running too lean
4th-misfire on cylinder 2

I am going to replace the spark plugs, pull the room fuse, and reset the ecu and see if that fixes it. If not then it is for sure a blown apex seal. In that case I am getting a remaned rene from mazmart if I can't get one from the dealer. I am going to have them put on a pettit stage II supercharger with the works....so thats where I stand as of right now.

I found out why I threw the two lean codes, it was because my vaccum nipple broke off in the cold weather and caused the leak and I just ignore the cat code because I dont have a cat. So its really the misfire I am working on, and who knows it could be something fairly simple that is messing with my car, lets jus hope it is.

Who is working in your car? I mean did you take it to the dealership for a diagnosis yet?
This is one of my biggest fears too running with the turbo.... so far its been good!
I really hope it`s an easy fix!!

I am trying to save a trip to the dealer because of all my parts on there. I dont want to put all the stock parts on and find out it was just a damn spark plug. Plus I have narrowed it down to one of two things, it is either the spark plugs or a blown seal. I have done A LOT of homework on this one so I am ready to tackle the job tom morning.....wish me luck ladies and gents.

Of course!

And who wants some more bad news??

Bad news # 1: It’s supposed to snow! (check weather.com 10 day) small amounts but I hope its not bad.

Bad news # 2: My car has been at the RX7 store this week getting the INT-X installed and dyno tuned @ 10 psi -> guess what happened? -> My turbo is toast!! so I need to get it rebuild which will take a few weeks!

I will still be there drinking coffee @ the meet but unfortunately my car won’t!


Ps: and this week I have been looking at the problems SRrx-8JC is going thru and something in my mind was like tipping me off to something, like 6th sense or something, and then I got the phone-call!!

Damn ……

It's only 2 cars! Plus I'll still drop in with my good old truck lol
I think we should be further concerned about the weather!
This weekend was nice but cold!

Yeah I know, I just want to give you and SRrx a chance to bring and show off your cars and not feel left out.

We better keep an eye out for the weather this sat! Hopefully the nastiness stays away!

So how many people do we have coming to this?
