firstly apologies for putting this thread in general discussion but im desperate!!
Urgent help needed....
what happenned: last night i was going full throttle third gear and at about 5500rpm - 6000rpm suddenly lost power and jerked etc..slowed down to realise that the car is running really jerky and missing and shuttering etc..smoke coming out...almost stalling at idle..and constantly missing and jerking when driving..
engine is sr20 s14
mods include bigger turbo, fuel system (550cc, gtr pump, pressure reg.), microtec MT8, metal head gasket, boost last night at 1.2 kg/cm2 = 17psi when it happened...the car is stuned for up to 1.5kg/cm2..
other details include: car has been running really rich for long time ie. 2.5 years since last tune, spark plugs changed 2000kms ago and are really black now, fuel pressure runs at 50psi at idle now when its running really bad compared to about 40psi before last night...smoke is mainly black/fuel but maybe has a hint of blue oil type smoke....no oil in radiator and oil level hasnt changed..also one strange thing is that my boost gauge stopped working when it happened..its a greddy digital boost/exhaust temp gauge..
can a microtech shutdown or reset or go into safe mode or anything like that?? cold a fouled plug cause this? can a computer shit itself when detecting a problem? what the hell could it be?
urgent help needed...car needs to be driven everyday...
