Default engine fired up, oil everywhere!!!!!!

So after way to long, my wrx is all put back together! but then when i went to start her up i got nothing...

it appears that i have a P0335 crank sensor malfunction, does this mean i need to replace the sensor? i read that this can happen when adding a light weight crank pulley (which i did). i tried clearing the code, unplugging the sensor and plugging it back in, but to no avail still not cranking or even tring to kick over

suggestions??

I would suggest checking the wires and plug, and if that doesn't work try a new sensor. The crank pulley shouldn't throw the code till after the car has run for a while, and those are generally misfire codes from what I have seen.

Sounds like a good idea. I would assume that it would be the sensor if the wires and plug are intact, but then again you know how effective online diagnostics are.. haha, good luck man.

I didn't have another battery before, and didn't want to buy one just to try, but ended up having one given to me, and so I tried it.



I'm still baffled how a battery could have caused this, since it wouldn't start immediately but would start after many cranks.

Does anyone have any insight as to how it could do this? I would assume that if the battery didn't have the oomph on the first 100 cranks, why would it magically work after try # 101?


Thanks to everyone who contributed, and yes, I do feel like a moron for it being so simple

looks like its the hard oil line under the turbo that is the culprit of the oil spitting, but what would cause it to rev like that?

Or check your throttle cable and make sure it's not hung up on anything. Happened to me before.
