Diesel said he heard a pop noise so instantly I though backfire but more I think about it I can`t come up with away it would especially with direct injection an compression ignition...................thanks forSilly newbie question - but can a diesel backfire?
I`m convinced there had to be a positive pressure to make that duct separate from the throttle assembly. a none turbo or none supercharged gas or diesel engine would never do that .Definitely follow your logic. Could that pop sound have been the duct coming off?
the piece that broke is bolted to the top of the engine so unless the bolt came loose an fell out can`t see how its going to move.Since this is a intercooler hose, isn't this connecting something bolted to the frame with something bolted to the engine? Since engines do move on the motor mounts under load, there'd would have to be some flex somewhere.
Which raises another question - what happens when the motor mounts start going bad? Because it could cause excess engine movement. This might be the weak link when that starts to happen.
