my 180 idles for 30seconds to a minute and then smoke starts coming from under the turbo where my wastegate sits.. Things that i suspect that it could be is that i sanded off the flange smooth that connects to the wastegate carefully ofc to not get metal shavings down inside my manifold Could this be metal burning off inside the dump tube that runs under my car?? and could i just idle the car to where it will all burn off eventually? The smell is not coolant or oil but much more like a metal burning smell
Car is a 1994 180sx black top sr20det with garret 2860rs turbo running external wastegate So i just changed my manifold gasket, turbo/manifold gasket and dump pipe gasket and now i have smoke coming from the turbo manifold area? One thing i forgot to put back on the car is the external wastegate boost pressure hose on the pressure side of the intercooler pipe but now when it idles for 20/30 seconds it starts smoking a little around the manifold area? the car hasn't been driven but only idled. the smoke smell is only coming from the external wastegate pipe itself, i smell inside the exhaust manifold and dump pipe and nothing smells like it's burning, one thing i did which was probably the cause of it is i used copper high temp sealant around where the wastegate bolts too as i didn't have a metal gasket on me and also where the dump pipe connects to the front pipe. the sealant is rated to 60 - 370c I have ordered new metal gaskets for my wastegate and dump but before i bolt that bitch back on Any info will be much appreciated!
Hi Guys, I had my SR20DET rebuilt in my 180sx less then a year ago with all new internals including new pistons and piston rings. The engine has only done around 6,000ks. I have noticed that there is what looks like smoke coming out of my breather filter that's connected to my oil overflow can. I have been told its potentially blow-by or something to do with the crank case pressure caused by the piston rings not sealing correctly? I'm just wondering if I could get some more opinions. Just some things I should note: - The engine doesn't blow oil out of the breather just smoke. - The breather has a hole in one end where the smoke is coming out (its not closed off) - The dipstick doesn't pop out. - When I take off the oil filler cap when the motor is running it feels like air is coming out the hole. - Engine performs great. Any advice would be appreciated thanks.
