ya this sounds iffy. Im sure it COULD work, but I wouldnt risk it. My roomate said that putting a bit of tranny fluid, let it run for a bit, then change the oil. This is just something I wouldnt want to risk, when you can go out and buy relatively cheap (especially to fixing broken/damaged parts) alternatives like STP
I only have one thing to point out about this idea:
Regular pump gas id highly refined...
Diesel is a _BY-PRODUCT_ of the refining process. Now... do you want to be adding less refined (hence dirtier) fuel to your system to clean it??? sounds fishy for anything recent... This may be the case in like a 71 dodge with a 350 carbed or some BS... but not on a 90's model import... he's got a screw loose...
If u try to run diesel in a regular gas car it will "gum it up"
Why would anyone want to put anything other than gasoline into a gasoline engine? Use a better grade of fuel if you are concerned about the internals being dirty.
Diesel fuel: Measured by cetane, not octane. The heat from the high compression of the air is what is makes the fuel ignite when it is sprayed into the cylinder. Current diesel formulas creates plenty of soot, not something you'd want in your engine.
Hexalene? What is that?
Alcohol: Used to make water 'burn' through the combustion process. It's a cheapo way to remove water from a fuel tank. There are better products available for that problem. Not much of an issue as most auto fuel tanks have a drain plug.
Take off the air filter, use a spray bottle of water, and mist into the intake tube at about 2000rpm.
I see heads every day that have cracks in them (due to old ass iron+heat+stress=crack) and the chamber that was sucking water is always the cleanest. usually looking brand new! I remember reading, once, that the water dropletts soak into the carbon, boil, and the boiling of the dropletts is what breaks apart the carbon buildup. I'm going to be trying this very soon, and then I'll try some of the seafoam stuff to see if it's really worth doing. Good luck!
So my motor is built and already in the car with the turbo kit installed my question is can I install the cam without degreeing it and have my tuner advance or retard accordingly? Yes I did search but didn't find a clear answer
I have a 1990 crx si with the original d16a6. I wont to build the original motor. The head has had a value job and has been shaved. Machine shop has stated that the block needs to be bored out at least .10000. What is the best bore to go with being I have to bore it? And what pistons and rods...
Am building a 96 civic coupe to run on dirt track. Have a couple of engines i can build but don't know what to build? Have a d16y7, d16y5, and some parts for a d16y8. Looking for opinions on building a engine for this civic that would help with mid range power? Rules says "stock" but was looking...
Yesterday I talked to Geoff from colt cams and he mentioned that there are actually two d16a6 cams. He said the only way to identify which core I have would be to install it in my engine and check the timing.
Is this true? I’ve never heard of two different a6 cams.
