This morning i think i almost blew my engine, lol.
Pretty much i live on a dirt road, the intercooler nuts vibrated off, intercooler fell to the ground ripping a hole in the piping. I didnt notice any of this, and the car died when i got to the stop sign(because of a vac leak of course).
Sooo anyways, it dies and right away i know its a vac leak, so i check theintercooler. I see its hanging down and do a temp zip tie fix, and i duct tape the hole up to i can limp to school and fix it later. Well i turn on the car and go for a min, and the throttle opens up all the way, i wasnt even hitting the gas and the engine keeps revving. Im like oh **** so i check my throttle cable.
I wiggled it around a bit and that didn fix i, so i took off the piping i fixed and looked in the throttle body. ******* ROCK LODGED IN IT... I couldent beleive it, i pulled it out and went again.
Few mins later it happend again, same thing... ******* rock. So i took off thepiping and poured it on the ground to see if there is anything in there. TO my suprise about a pound of rocks pour onto the ******* ground. I button her back up and she runs perfect, but im still super worried.
I mean if i got a rock stuck in the throttle body than think about all the dust i must of sucked into and combusted in my engine... And to think a rock could have went in there and completely bombed my engine makes me shiver...
Hopefully there was NO damage done, it idles great, engine sounds the same, still runs good- no misfires or anything. I guess time will tell.
Wish me luck, any opinions on anything i should do to help it? Ive already driven a good 4-6 miles after the incident so i think anything bad that would have happend would have already happend.
Bah, i guess if i fucked it up ill know in time...
I still cant beleive i didnt blow my engine, a rock was that close to entering the combustion chamber twice
