Re: Project: Typhoon - Build Thread
It sounds like an engine that 1) has sat for a loooooong time and the hydraulic lifters lost all pressure and/or may be gummed up 2) Could possibly have oil bypass gunk in the Idle Control Valve preventing it from working correctly.
I'd run a bottle full of engine flush through it as well as fuel injector cleaner and check out the IAC valve. I'm betting its also got Sh1t gas in it.
Beautiful. Thank you. We've got a bunch of snow in the way, but it's going to be in the 50's the resto of the week. Should be able to drive it back on Saturday. This is worth a shot.
