Default there's a hole in my engine block

Driving on an up hill canyon run. After the last turn I shifted into forth. Heard a clank clank, noticed power loss, more noise. Got up to the peak and my friends didn't even know who i was... Then it died. Openned the hood and check oil. A tad low. Let the car cool for a while. Added oil. Tryed to start. sounded like a blown barring in the crank. So we realize that I needed to AAA. No one has any cell phone reception. Others reached the peak. No good. Checked the oil again it was over. I had only added 2 quarts. Started the car. Wasn't nice. I kept the car in idle and was pushed down the canyons. That was interesting. Got out. Called AAA. Towed the car home. Get home, started the car to get it into the garage. Got out. Noticed a trail of oil. Popped the hood. Saw oil all over the place found a hole on the top of the in the middle above the crank. oh well... lesson learned... Change your oil after coming back from a 2.5 month vacation. So much for putting a turbo on a phase I 2.5. I guess it's JDM 2.0 time. hehehe



i had 113,478 miles on it

i got my 2.5RS on 5/11/99

MY99 had 4 miles on it when she became mine

I knew i should've changed the oil.

i think i need an oil cooler, that would help from that from happening again...

is the before 95 water cooled style intercoolers good?

is it hard to add a different switch to the water pump resevior so i can make a home made water intercooler spray kit.

should i cut after the plug?

i wonder if a v VIII would fit?

i should check out the auctions

I thought phase I was DOHC? Isn't your car SOHC or phase II?

Sorry about your engine.

Phase I is a MAF sensor type, to check. Look by the air filter. If there is a sensor with wirers in the middle of the intake.

If there are no wirers and sensors on your intake near the air filter. Then you have a phase II MAP sensor type

in a MAF setup the Fuel Ingectors automatically open and open furter according to how much air is coming through the intake.

in a MAP set up Fuel Ingectors are opened in stages when air reaches required amounts of air, like points on a graph.

Yep. All MY99's were phase II. That was my point.

And I second the "edit" suggestion.

Nope. MY99 was a phase II with MAF. Phase # had nothing to do with whether or not you had a MAF or MAP. No MY99 came with a MAP sysytem.

MY98 was DOHC Phase I
MY99+ was SOHC Phase II

I do not believe that. How could they advertise a SOHC engine in their brochure and give you a crappy old DOHC Phase I? I've heard what you said many times, but STILL have yet to see one. Do me a favor, if you get one in at Hodges, call me and I want to come see it.

you got the SOHC heads, but they were bolted to a Phase I block in early 99.

Yep, as stated before, 99's had SOHC with Phase 1 bottoms early and Phase II bottoms later.

98 RS = Phase I block with DOHC (with MAS?)
early 99RS = Phase I block with SOHC (MAF)
late 99RS= Phase II block with SOHC (MAF)
00-current= Phase II block with SOHC (MAP)

I might be wrong on the sensors, just a guess.

98 RS = MAF

I just changed mine two weeks ago, so I'm sure of it.

The way it was explained to me by the dealership is that they changed the MAF portion of the Phase I engine on models made after June 1998. Those of us who have the early models have to buy a $330-$350 MAF sensor assembly while the later models can just buy the sensor itself for ~$120.

I don't know if the late model 98's MAF assembly is the same as the 99's but it could be.
