    You'll see elevated oil consumption and likely external oil leaks. My pcv fix kit blocks that port as well with a screw and a nylon washer that allows the epoxy to bond two pieces together instead of just clogging it. Sent from my BlackBerry Key2 using Tapatalk
  4. GM 1.4L Turbo Intake Manifold PCV Valve Fix Kits

    Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Likely bad valve cover. Aftermarket? PCV failure can blow out the front main seal which will not always resolve itself. May need a new front main seal. Make sure the check valve is pointed in the right direction. Sent from my BlackBerry Key2 using Tapatalk

  6. GM 1.4L Turbo Intake Manifold PCV Valve Fix Kits

    Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    No because there's no pressure differential between both sides of that check valve. The boost leak tester when hooked up like my video shows tests for crankcase leaks also. To test the check valve in the intake manifold for leaks, do the following: 1. Disconnect the corrugated hose 2. Hook up...
  7. Cruze owners take note: PCV Valve failure again! Chevrolet When Will You Fix This???

    Gen1 Service Issues
    Have you addressed the actual pcv valve in the intake manifold? The valve cover houses a pressure regulator diaphragm, not a pcv valve. Sent from my BlackBerry Key2 using Tapatalk

    Keep in mind they're only reimbursing expenses for the valve covers, NOT the intake manifold. Sent from my BlackBerry Key2 using Tapatalk

    Yes, when the PCV issues begin, oil consumption goes up. You'll see it pooled up inside the intake manifold.

    Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Correct, they are only covering the valve cover and I wouldn't hold my breath that, after having to go through the process of reimbursing people for their expenses, that they'll include the intake manifold or the corrugated hose that cracks so easily in the repairs.

    Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    They didn't fix it. They put a pin behind the check valve so it doesn't disappear but the design is the same. It will still get brittle over time and either fail to seal correctly or will leak like the OEM check valve does before it fails completely. The notion behind their "improvement" is that...

    Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Well it's not very oxidation stable. There's a lot of oil oxidation deposits in that PCV system. Just something to keep an eye on. Both are pretty low quality oils even if they do label themselves "Synthetic." Sent from my BlackBerry Key2 using Tapatalk

    Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    Oh here we go. Old data from some Russian website. You do realize formulation changes based on region right? The Russian data was posted in 2013. 6 year old data. The rest of the parameters don't demonstrate anything. I made the same mistakes you're making years ago trying to extrapolate...

    Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    A few reasons. 1. My buddy hasn't been active for a while. 2. Apparently some people on the sonic forums don't like me and the admins won't do their jobs when people break the rules and attack me. 3. I was permanently banned from there for years. Why would I try to help a community that has...

    Check inside the brass fittings, it sometimes gets stuck inside one of those during shipment. If you still can't find it, I'll mail you a replacement. Sent from my BlackBerry Key2 using Tapatalk

    I'll start by saying it's clear that he has an issue with me but won't actually discuss it with me. Just attacks my fix as if he knows everything and then proceeds to redneck rig up something that was honestly poorly thought out. Accuses my fix of being overly complicated and silly. Meanwhile...
