Yeah I drove in C for 500 miles. D for 20 miles and then E lol
Cool, thanks for info.Yeah I drove in C for 500 miles. D for 20 miles and then E lol
So how many KM/ Miles are we talking about before it causes a noticeable issue? Will this be such an issue on an inlet valve that is having air forced past it!Carbon build up from recycled PCV oil vapour is not removed by the cleaning additives in premium fuel.
Fuel mixture does not enter intake ports to flush/ clean the back of intake valves, as it does with multi port injectors.
With GDI only air passes the intake valve and fuel is added in cylinder.
Have not found any specific comments on the Picanto GT engine. How many Km are you up to?So how many KM/ Miles are we talking about before it causes a noticeable issue? Will this be such an issue on an inlet valve that is having air forced past it!
I think it will be exclusively for washing the valves/intake, it already makes torque impressively low down for the engine/turbo combo.Whether that be for purely for gas washing the valves or a more advanced set up utilizing the extra port injectors for low end torque and gradually move more and more towards just direct higher up the rev range.
Yes I am especially protective of my warranty, BUT I am majorly disheartened by the way Kia restricted the engine - you can hear the turbo fall off hard after 2000rpm, beyond that and the car pulls super flat to redline. Kia obviously had other plans for the drivetrain but it sounds like they had to meet some kind of economy/emissions target for the city car segment.But yeah I am fully with you, my dealer may be extra sensitive to mods and hard to deal with, my warranty is now worth even more to me and all thoughts of possibly sacrifice engine warranty for full ECU flash + intake/exhaust swap is long gone haha.
My plan now is to do that just that, "hijacking" PCV and add a tank in a way so that I can fast and easy remove the tank and hook on stock tubing again when car go into service aso, other than that I may start regular manual washing, CRC GDi valve/turbo deposit cleaner or similar. Think it's hard to remove a lot once deposits are burnt in properly, but in case of regularly doing it before it build up? Just an idea, next would be water/methanol injection but now it start to become expensive and complicated for a decent system, at least here where I am the good ones are pricey!
I had this as well but only when the car was under 2000km, it seemed to be a slightly burning smell but it's not new to me. This occured to me on every vehicle I purchased new for the first few thousand k's.Had to stop in middle of the road yesterday, powerful smell build up so fast after a short period of giving it all it has to offer,
EDIT: The below info, I was wrong it does not have an electric water pumpPopped the hood and heard a slight beeping continuous tone at fist, listen to the box directly and but not sound like coming from that, so twisted it a bit and went away, strange?
