  1. Depending upon how the vehicle is equipped, you will probably need to lower the engine slightly.
  2. intake manifold bolt torque specs

    Welcome to RennTech If you are referring to the M6X35 bolt that hold the manifold to the cylinder head, it should be 10Nm or 7.5 ft lb.
  3. You need to check the voltage, which as I am away from the shop, I have no reference range to give you. Perhaps someone could chime in with the correct range. Voltage can be checked with a simple multimeter.
  4. I’m sorry, but that type of patch is only good to get a vehicle home. Replace the failed hoses or you will end up chasing your tail trying to fix this.
  5. I would suspect your voltage regulator is on its way out. A cheap and easy fix.
  6. The automatic sound level control was based upon Swiss noise level laws, which require these systems to close automatically between about 10 MPH and 25 MPH (speeds are approximate as the rule is in KPH). Put your window down, push the button on the console to open the system to loud, and slowly drive off; if the auto system is correctly installed, you should hear the car's volume drop around 10 MPH and come back around 25 MPH.
  7. That is the hose supplying vacuum to your power brake booster........................
  8. P2103 is for a high signal on the throttle actuator motor, so I rather doubt it is connected to your vacuum leak issue.
  9. We never fill customers cars to the max line, ever. Closest we get is one line below the max line. Occasional hard driving or track usage will end up with oil in the intake on vehicles without leaking turbos if you overfill the oil system.......................
  10. One or more vacuum lines are either loose or disconnected, most likely the one that supplies vacuum to your brake booster. I'd start there.............
  11. This engine should not be overfilled, drain some oil out of it until it is below the max line.
  12. I would start by trying to read the sensor voltages with the Durametric system.
  13. It cold be anywhere is the circuit between the sensor and the DME.
  14. Welcome to RennTech That code is often caused by wiring or harness connector issues, resulting in a lack of communication between the DME and the sensor.
  15. There isn't any mileage per se, you change them when needed.
