View Full Version : Sr20det Problem!!

08-10-2013, 02:27 PM
Firstly it all started when i blew my turbo up..I replaced it with a upgraded t28 turbo i have a stock engine with a apexi head gasket i ran 13 psi on the t25 and had no problems so i ran the t28 with 13psi. After a while it started smoking all white and when you gas it black smoke. and runs really rich, I pulled my manifold of and saw that there was oil in the last hole also i pulled my spark plugs out and found that they were all covered in oil. i did a compression test at the results were front to back 90/30/110/105, I put new spark plugs in and ran it again. it ran fine the first day. The second day it sounded like something was hitting something and it ran like shit, so i pulled the plugs out and there were covered in oil again. Any help would be great thanks.

Also i've read that it could either be the Head gasket/Valves/Rings just wanted your input since my car has 2 low compressions/ Also when the dip stick pops up and oil goes everywhere.

If your dip stick is popping up the it's most likely that you have bad piston rings and your losing all your compression into the crank case. Deff stop driving it until you rebuild it. I recommend going the smart path and do a full rebuild of the bottom end and the head. It's not a lot more work since you'll have the head off anyway.

Time for a rebuild or another bottom end. This is why you dont crank the boost up without tuning it.

Yer i didn't drive it after the dip stick poped up, And yer that's what i was thinking to with a rebuild, Looks like it will be sitting for awhile then. Thanks guys
