So Ive just picked my next project ( too many but read on )
Its an XU10j4r from my newly acquired s16. Its got no compression on Cyc no 4 and so is a suspected timing belt issue.
Ive started pulling it apart tonight and got as far as the inlet manifold. After removing it have discovered that its stuffed. Looks like its had a backfire of some sort and exploded. (see pic )
Ive been racking my brains as to what possible damage may have been bee caused as Im yet to get the head off ( and someone has taken my Torx 55 bit to remove the bolts!! )
Un measured air into the engine causing leaning etc? Burnt valves causing no compression?
Anyway, I have a load of spares to repair it. But thought I would note that its already annoying working on the car as its not as simple as the 205... Always learning though so not really complaining...
Hoping to get it off over the next couple of days
