1998 Acura CL Repair Question
I drove through water and got it into my intake and my car died. got it started and it ran like nothing happend. then about a week later, i started ma
The engine could be hydrolocking-check all the cylinders for coolant-start here
im not a motor guy.. how do i do that without pulling off the head?
Remove the all the sparkplugs and look for water/coolant in the cylinders
oh alright sounds easy enough. thanks. ill let you know tomorrrow how it went. if all goes well, get new plugs and should it run like it did before all the trouble?
Dunno yet till you check it-could be something else-let me know
spark plugs were completely dry. and I wasnt able to even see into the cylinder to see if theres anything.
See if you can turn the crankshaft pulley 2 revolution
well we just decided we are gonna put a new motor in the car. what is the easiest way to swap it? pull it out from above? or go from underneath? trying to avoid pulling the tranny. we dont wanna have to deal with shift linkage problems. everyone tells me that is there biggest problem...
Never done it with an Acura-My way is pull the engine from above
Which engine do you have?
I don't see any problem with the shift linkages as they are fit and clipped on.
I would normally drop the whole engine and transmission assy. Taking out trans does not required enginto ne removed but taking the engine out without removing the transmission would be a biger headache and you would most probably damage the transmission shift cable if the transmission is not supported well.
