Heres the prob. I had my second HKS bov seize up on me sunday. It wasnt opening at all. From what I was told is happening (and makes sence) is water from my open hood scope is getting in it, heating up, drying the rubber and making it stick. I tried oiling it up and nothing so I got a new valve.
I got the Tial
Now the Tial valve is only opening alittle bit at low boost, and doesnt at all at high boost (higher rpm's) wierd huh.
Problems I know the car has through a check engine light check up
- Fuel level sensor (cant be it)
- CPS crank position sensor (keep this one in mind!)
- Fuel vapor leak (prob. a bad gas cap and unrelated))
I ran a Vacume check on the line going to the Valve yesterday BEFORE the new valve went on) it checked out fine "normal engine operation" it said.
Today with Tial valve on I ran the V-check again and it came up the same but when i reved the engine it came back to idle and vacume read "late ignition timing" and stayed there. (My guess is late ignition timing is timing being pulled?? and when i reved it a bit the timing pulled?
I don't see how the vacume could of went bad over night, or with the new valve on there. Im thinking that the CPS (CRANK POSITION SENSOR) is pulling timing and SOME HOW messing up my vacume???
To answer some qs. that you might want to ask if you can help-
-Its Tial BOV with 11lb spring (Im running 17psi so should be good there)
and this Valve can not be adjusted.
-I took the valve off and put it back on making sure everything was straight.
-Vacume checked out fine yesterday but is talking sht today
-no kink's in lines I checked 100 times.
Of course theres always a possibilty that I got a bad valve. If not Im thinking something with the crank sensor with it some how messing up vacume (which ive asked around and was told it couldn't be, but in my eyes could still be)
Any help will be greatly appreciated for I am a worrier haha!
P.S new Crank sensor is in the mail...
