That's what I was getting at, seems like something got fried in your ms that's causing it to send voltage through your ac circuirt causing the noise.

yeah totally.

someone with a MS do me a favor, turn the key the ON and unplug the main injector harness in the engine bay and tell me if your cooling fan turns on. lol.


On a positive note I just changed my oil and it was clean and all 4-qts.

Just realized if you unplug the injector harness your also unplugging your temp sensor therefore ms is gonna show high coolant temps and turn your fans on.

You can confirm by hookin up your laptop and disconnecting the harness

yeah, Happy 4th :(

Cylinder 4 - 14% through rings (oil filler cap)



Cylinder 3 - 27% through rings (oil filler cap)



Cylinder 2 - 34% through rings (oil filler cap)




Cylinder 1 - 31% through rings (oil filler cap)




not what i was expecting considering my compression results were 180psi across the board and I just changed my oil yesterday...all of it was there, just a little thinned out (viscosity like water). or maybe my coolant is leaking into oil...

Should we expect another month and half wait for warm leak down numbers?

why all the hate?!


I'll do it after work this afternoon. Since it will be warm, as I drove it to work today.


As far as my stupid a/c issue, like I said before, if I unplugged the blower motor the MS wasn't getting confused-but I was left with the compressor running and now airflow. I disabled the compressor and turn my fans to full blast-idled fine. As soon as I hit the a/c switch to turn it on, the idle goes crazy. So there is something about the blow motor itself that's causing that specific issue. I have a new blower and resistor pack on its way. Hopefully that will solve one thing.

problem was i had the car out of gear each round. Around ~52psi the pressure would move the piston and allow it to leak slightly out the exhaust valve.

Getting ~65 out of 75psi across the board.

coupled with my even compression im saying internals are good.


factoid: when I plug in a different MS all my electrical noise in my speakers goes away. Fear everything stems from my MS having a fault of some sort.

Sounds like a component failure, something grounding out on the MS.

yep. gotta find out what, cause everything looks okay. maybe the MOV1 IIRC it's only rated to 22v and I'm pretty sure I spiked that high. will have to talk to DIY and smart people.

I don't know all the ins and outs of electronics, but could a diode have failed???
