  1. Hiya! Corona D-Turbo a.k.a. Carina in UK Cheers! Coyote from Rio Negro Argentina
  2. I lied at work about the reasons for being late today. I said" there was a huge accident on the highway" :o , but I forgot to mention it was in other highway than the one I take to come here :P :P :P The thing is the pillow was so nice to me.... :!Removed!: Cheers from BA ARGENTINA
  3. Its good........ But U need a pile of money to do that!!!!, so its too much unreal... Cheers from BA ARGENTINA
  4. I remember once when a fitter left a cleaning rag in the air intake of a truck he was servicing, when he dropped the cab back down it made a great smoke screen in the workshop: :censor: thats why I DO ALL the maintenance myself. If something goes wrong, I certainly know what and who.... At this time Im waiting the filters and some other parts to be delivered from the factory so this weekend I service her. Cheers From BA ARGENTINA
  5. Mmmm, true. I have ordered a Fuel Filter just in case its faulty... Ill check it right away! Thx m8!!! Hope this can calm me down. I was the stupid guy who posted about the fear of blowing it away for speeding. Can you imagine? doing 140 km/h and the car starts smoking grey???? :( :( :( . I need to see a doctor..... NOW
  6. Hi everybody! I need some advice here. Well, the other day (a month ago) I was driving on the highway and suddlenly a huge amount of gray/blue smoke came out from the exhaust with some loss of power. It lasted no longer that 2 seconds. I inmediatelly pulled over and checked everything, no oil leaks, no coolant leaks, perfect idling. Seemed to be everything was fine, I let the engine idle for a while to check temp, but as I said, everything was OK. So I continued driving to the farms (300 kms away) at 120~130km/h average. No more problems again. So at that moment I thought it could be: - Moistures in the diesel - oil in the diesel (strange, I believed that oil and diesel could mix) - water in the fuel. But if there is water in the fuel, it floates or does it goes to the bottom of the tank??? So a month passed and 1500 km driven. Last weekend I was on the highway and the engine again produced a cloud of smoke, but this time very small and almost unnoticiable Could it be dirty fuel???? I refill always in the same place Could it be the fuel pump? Could it be Oil leaking from the valves? that dont produce a loss of power. I dont think its water entering to the cilinders.... Any ideas???? Anything further to check??? Thx guys!!! its a 1998 2CT Corona, if you wonder.... Cheers from BA Argentina
  7. Does anyone knows if the 2C-T has rev limiter? o if the ecu has a "track day" option? Just curious, Because I won't use it unless is totally necessary (like when I was chased by some guys that tryed to steal my car...) Its also true that diesels above 4000 rpm loose power, so its better to keep it there. @ 4000 RPM in 5th your are scratching the 160 KM/h, too much for a td, IMHO. Martin you said that the passat had that switchable ecu, and what about the turbo pressure?, should it increase it too... Cheers Coyote from BA Argentina ps: remember to cheer up for ARGENTINA!!!!!
  8. Hiya guys A little story... well the thing is that today as I was driving back home, after passing the tolls cabin, I started to ascelerate as usual to reach the speed limit. Beside me there was a black and shiny civic coupe (nicely modded BTW) and I simply decided to pull a little harder, just for fun. I stopped at 3000 RPM in 5th (its a Turbodiesel - 2CT) as I always do, because I'm unable to go beyond that since a blew an engine off at 175 Km/h!!! (that engine had forged pistons, Renault Alpine's carburetors, very high compression, all in a Renault 12 1.4L, ready to fly!!!, I can give you that). Since that very day, I cannot rev any engine anymore, I SIMPLY CANT So my friends of TOC, I need some words of confidence, I cant continue suffering thinking that im going to blow it again! I know that engines are designed up to its 75%, to make them safe and reliable. But What if I drive it at 3500~ 4000 rpm sometimes or more often? Would it damage it, reduce life, etc? Diesel engines are not for high revs, but what are high revs for them? more than what? I dont know, this psicological issue is driving me mad Anyway, I wanted to share my sorrow with you.... Cheers Coyote from BA Argentina PS: Tomorrow cheer up for ARGENTINA!!!!! :P
  9. Yeah.... and my soul came back to my body . Why do we have always to suffer like this??? :ffs: Anyway, Here we go Germs... Cheers From BA Argentina
  10. Ours too.... We play in 15 minutes..., lets see how it goes. Cheers from BA Argentina
  11. Hi guys! for several months I've been searching for info trying to figure out why my gear box started to fail from 3 to 2, and the only way to stick down is double declutching. So a few minutes ago I found this, it was in spanish so I translated it as best as I could. It was eye-opener... DONT MESS UP WITH GEAR OIL as I did. Ill replace it again tomorrow with API GL-3, to see what happens now. Lady Carina: Please forgive me, I shouldn't have trusted the OIL CENTER... The text is this: Present classification A.P.I contains six designations, establishing the quality for a specific service. API-GL-1: Service characteristic of axes with conical or helical gears and manual transmissions in smooth conditions that can work with refined pure mineral oil. They can take antirust, Anti-corrosive, antiespumantes and depressing additives of the freezing point. API-GL-2: Service characteristic of axes with conical gears that work in conditions of load, temperature and speed superior to the API-GL-1. API-GL-3: Typical service of manual transmissions and axes with conical gears, in moderately severe conditions of speed and load. API-GL-4: Service characteristic of gears, particularly hypoid, working at high speed to low load, and low speed with high loads. They protect against bordered the surfaces on contact. API-GL-5: Typical service of hypoid gears working at high speed, dynamic load; high speed to low load and low speed with high loads. They assure better protection the surfaces in contact that service API-GL-4. API-GL-6: Service characteristic of gears, specifically the hypoid with sliding limited in conditions of high speed with high loads and yields. Its use is typical in differentials in which the use of the system of blockade of both is frequent palieres. They protect of optimal way against the bordered one of surfaces. Hope this helps some guys besides me... Cheers from BA Argenitina
  12. Brazil, Brazil, Brazil.... And What about ARGENTINA???? Cheers From BA Argentina
  13. What if I tell You my Corona 2.0 Td runs 26 km per litre of diesel on the highway? I Tested over 1600km (1000 miles) road trip Amazing, ah....? Cheers Coyote from BA ARGENTINA
  14. Yeah, hi every-1! well I made myself some time to come back to TOC. Unfortunatelly here dont let me time even for breathing... I have one question, and I wanted to check it with you guys that have more experience working in Carinas.(I have never have to repair her, yet!) 1° The steering box has became a little bit noisy, with the engine off I turn the steering wheel and I can sense this clonking noise inside the steering box assy. Could it be a problem of lubrication?, or anything broken? ( the wheels movement is pretty accurate, there is nothing loose when I drive it, just noise) I would like to remove the rubber things that seal it, in order to access to the teeth. But again, Is it possible to lubricate this? Haynes says that when you change the joins, you have to lubricate with steering fluid (ATF), I didn't understand where... Please, I know there are some experts out there, please give me a piece of advice!!! Cheers and thanks in advance!!! Coyote from BA ARGENTINA
  15. Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooo What you have done??? You dont need to cut. Look in my garage and will find out what Im talking about... And By the Way, I'm BACK! Cheers from BA ARGENTINA
  16. Its produced in Argentina to the world!!! Very nice... Cheers Coyote from BA Argentina
  17. OMG... We just have to go back to the innocense of a child... Some other thoughts: Love is when a you think of her and everything is to make her feel better. Love is when you share how she feels, and stay by her side to support her. Love is when she shows me a different point of view and help me to be a better person Love is to stay up at 4:00 am preparing coffee while she studies for the finals And the list goes on... The thing is, if you are so fortunate to be in looooooove, anything else is just accesories... Cheers Coyote from BA Argentina
  18. Beautifull! what is a 2 mode turbo? That says your rev meter... Cheers Coyote from BA Argentina
  19. Hi Cal, sounsd like U have a huge experience I will bother you a little bit more :D I had to do the same with my other cars with LPG, and worked fine. I usually drive very calm, but sometimes I like to feel my back pressed to the sit. Besides that, 50 town, 50 in highways etc... Something changed, Im planning to travel this winter to the mountains, to meet the snow. So Im getting ready and my lady too: wheel chains thicker coolant to prevent freezzing I have to change the engine oil new wippers clean the polen filter get the ABS checked (because of the ice) new beams and spares tool box (save me the other trip, when some wires got short circuited... :o ) medical aid kit. charge the batterys of my new digi-cam So, Im planning the schedule to avoid the snow and ice on the road during the trip and that kind of things Cheers and thanks Coyote from BA Argentina
  20. Well, seems to be that the 75w90 oil fixed the problem. Thanks for the replys Cheers Coyote from BA Argentina Why is so sensitive to a different oil grade, Does it happen the same with the engine oil? What do you recomend to a 2CT engine?
  21. Wow... this weekend I arranged to change the oil again, because its reaally bad how it's working now. Also the user manual says 75-90 (why didnt I read it before???? ) Thanks a lot for the info! Cheers Coyote from BA Argentina PD: Next sat I'll post what happened...
  22. Thanks for the info! Why is it that before the oil change, I didnt realize about the syncro problem? Is it for the heavier oil? I'll try with 75-90, but I tried the double de-clutch technique and didn't work. Thanks again! Cheers Coyote from BA Argentina
  23. Congrats M8!!! I guess its a 3sfe, correct me if Im wrong... Cheers Coyote from BA Argentina
  24. Well, adding to the noisy drive train, I have replaced the gearbox oil, and since then the 2nd gear doesnt enter downshifting from 3rd. It only enters at 20 KM/h (sort of 12 mph). But after 35 mins of constant driving, it starts to work better, but its still a piece of junk! :ffs: The synchronizer idea crossed my mind, can someone tell me how it works? To dismiss the idea or not? I tried the following: 80 90 oil greased the commands from Stick to gearbox adjusted the clutch pedal, just wondering it might be the clutch pressed the clutch pedal serveral times to check if its matter of fluid preasure rev it, idle it, But it still gets stuck between 3rd going to 2nd :ffs: HeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelllllPPPPP Please... any ideas? The questions are: 80-90 Oil is the correct? Could this have affected the syncronizer? How much oil? 2 1/2 liters? Thanks in advance!!!! Coyote from BA Argentina
  25. That is the second thing I did, change the gear box oil, but it persists... Its driving me crazy... Thanks! Cheers Coyote from BA Argentina
