Check for leaks.

This is a discussion on Misfire issue update on my 02 WRX need part location diagram within the General Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Accidents. forums, part of the Tech & Modifying & General Repairs category; Alright yall, tried coil packs, gapping the plugs, all ground wire/cleaning connectors, changed oil just cause, checked the battery, termials ...
Alright yall, tried coil packs, gapping the plugs, all ground wire/cleaning connectors, changed oil just cause, checked the battery, termials change, injector cleaner and cleaning the MAF. So its still running rough with a little hesitation. 1st gear is the worst and still getting the misfire codes and it sound off at idle. Where is this PCV blow off located? What should be my next move, anyone have a suggestion?
I have recently ran through a full tank with injector cleaner. Trying another full tank and more cleaner. It is running better as of yesturday, but still has the miss and idle rough and shaking. Does anyone have a layout photo or diagram of the motor parts location? I did try to google and autozone, and advance auto and no has an image or book to help me out. Any takers on here to lend a hand?

I did and both lines to the inner cooler were leaking. So I just got done fixing those. I bought a a new PCV valve. Now Im gonna try that and new fuel filter. Hoping for the best now. Also had advance run a test on the computer it came back negative. Why is it that my accessport picks the codes up but not OBD2 readers?
And thanks UEDan.
Well I found the PCV. its located under the IC and throttle body. So I changed it cause it was stuck. Well along with that I found some other issues. Such as 3 broken lines, 2 in which went to the IC and 1 that ran under the throttle body. Than a broken plastic tree. I found the prev owner had broken and used silicone to try and fix it to hold the hose on the tree, but that was a fail because he filled the tree with it instead. That was a nice suprise. Now I am getting down to little issue's and once they are all fixed she will run smooth. Well i can hope right, lol.
Today I put the 02 back together. There is no change with the PFFFF and PFFFE codes from my accessport. CEL is still flashing and now the 02 is backfiring alot more. So now the last items to look at is the fuel injectors and BOV I do believe. Coming down to the last and starting to lose hope here.
Thanks for the post Donkey. I have read your list and have print out of it. I gotta check the cam and clean the senor yet. I ordered new injectors for the 02 today and need to check the BOV. Also clean off the motor. But I am still confused that I can not get any codes on any readers but accessport? So far for the update today just checking more lines and found no new leaks or cracks.
Check the timing on the timing belt it could be off by a few teeth.
The guy I bought it from said change them. Accesspot not sure it came with the car. Stage 2 and running 93 octane 300x5, turbo exhuast. Thats pretty much it. No cyclinders are showing on any reader, mine or part store. Just the acccessport PFFFF and PFFFE. But you can hear it miss and the shaking and rough idle with hesitation. No compression test yet and yes the filter was one of the first things I changed, then the inspection and change of the coils along with cleaning the MAF. Also repaired all broke lines seven in total. donkey I have never done any of the test: compression/smoke/leak or boost. So a how to or apoint in the right direction to who can I appriciate.

I did injury to a couple friends about doing a compression test. They have done em on honda's and other cars. They have the guage and tools to do the test. So this week when they have a minute I should have a compression test done. What reading should I be looking for on the guage, 150-190 for good compression? But I was wondering does that change?
Possible Blow By?
And also search compression service limit.

Alright, so thanks to other members and friends on here. I now have a good idea on how to preform the compression test and it does not seem to be that complicated at all. Here is the link to the post from one of our members step by step compreesion test. Thanks Demon for that link.
DIY Engine Compression Test!!!
Thanks SD_GR, I will look at the blow by as well.
I was the plugs out and they are brand new NGK platinum. The left passanger back plug is black and the rest are normal. So I am gonna start my compression test with the black plug first.
Ok yall, I bought the tester for $32.00 at advance. Read the post i linked to again for good measure before doing the compression test. Number 3 cyclinder is dead. The rest are reading 163 to 165. I pulled the cover already and my friend said to pull the radiator and all the timing covers. He wants to check for a bent valve or hole in the piston. He said if its a hole in the piston get a new motor not worth the aggervation and money to repair. But if its the matter of bent or stuck lifters life is not over him and I can fix it... Any takers on that one? Any ideas whats the issue or is he right?
