Dies while driving still!!!
Well here I sit stranded on my way to work yet again. I'm ready to trade this thing in......
I originally started with changing the STC fitting a few weeks ago, when I took the cover off I noticed it had already been changed. So I put a new one in anyway. Then I changed dummy plugs, standpipes, injector orings and now the entire oil rail on the passenger side.
The nipple cups where bad and leaking, so it was necessary to change. The passenger side has zero leaks coming from it now, but still hot no start and also it dies while driving. Not as bad as before, I have a new oil cooler in the garage and will do that project this weekend, when it dies the oil temp is at 220. This is just driving no pulling, and the coolant temp is only 195-200.
I guess I'll pull the drivers side valve cover off and listen for leaks over there.
It's sounding more and more like a branch tube crack.
