View Full Version : Mysterious liquid in IC tube...

OK, I think I know what this is, but I wanted to see what others think.

FWIW, I had to remove the IC just so I could remove my tranny cooler to get it flushed....yeah, I almost regret "hiding" my tranny cooler. While the IC is out, I will also be upgrading to a bigger nozzle for my Snow kit.

Looks like oil mixed with water/coolant to me

DO you get blowby?

Looks like water mixed with oil coming from the PCV. Maybe an HG is leaking.

Some liquid mixed with oil. Where is your Snow nozzle mounted?

Kurt,

It looks like boost juice mixed with the usual motor oil that everyone gets from the PCV system. Looks like the mist is hitting the wall of the IC tube when spraying and then running back down to the bottom of the tube when your not at WOT.

I think you need to relocate your nozzel to the top of the IC tube or on the return plenum like I did.

Im with David on this one, thats exactly what i was thinking.

Yes, I too suspected the Boost Juice mixed with standard PCV oil. I just didn't expect that much.

As for relocting my nozzle, that's not part of the plan right now because I don't want to take anymore of the car apart. I might try to add another shut-off solenoid near the nozzle with a delayed shutoff (so I don't dead-head the pump).

Kurt,

I wonder if it would help to raise the point/MAF voltage that the pump starts spraying to insure that the air is moving fast enough to carry all the mist up the IC tube and into the intake manifold.

So do you think that it would be a good idea to weld a bung
in the IC tube. At say around a angle of 45 dgrees to thread
the nozzle into.

Would this help the water alky to stay in the air path.
Instead of spraying out of the nozzle & banging straight
into the wall of the IC tube.

That doesn't sound like a bad idea Randy. But my lack of welding skills and the fact that I refuse to remove the lower IC tube until I have to, I'll just keep it the way it is.

As for the MAF voltage: I though I had it coming on a little later than most people...I'll have to check.

I dont see how you would be spraying enough boost juice at any rpm where you would hit the turn on for the injection that would cause that. If that was the case it surely be at an RPM where you would feel a bog. Maybe you have a leak in the system if not blowby or a gasket leak.

30 is more optimal than 45 for airflow entry. If you are going through the trouble you might as well do it right.

Do you think some one make a spraybar to mount through the center
of the IC tube?

That's an idea Randy, but I'm not that motivated to do anything different right now.

Jezzz with that attitude there will be no trophies at the 2006 Shootout
for you!! :)

Probabaly will not even be able to beat Damon down the track.
Rumor has it, that he has signed up early for the 06 Shootout
