EF XR6 Died - HELP

Hey Guys and Gals,

Driving my xr6 home tonight and gave it the boot just to hear that throaty sound. Full flat from 40 to 80 then rolled, but straight after the car started shaking. I stopped at the lights and the revs where all flaky and the engine is full on ticking. It stalls under any power and fells like it is full limp mode. Exhaust seems black too.

It went in for a new head gasket about 3 weeks ago and major tune up, so i dont know what wrong. Any idea's?

Re: EF XR6 Died - HELP

I reckon it's most likely that it's ripped the vacuum hose off the MAP.
Does happen, rarely, if the motor twists too suddenly and the hose is a bit hard.

Re: EF XR6 Died - HELP

Yeah check the vacuum line to the MAP sensor hasn't come off as mentioned. This is most likely causing you problem. If it does turn out to be the vacuum line, I suggest you also check your engine mounts aren't broken.

Re: EF XR6 Died - HELP

Yep the hoses can split too and you might not be able to see it clearly.
Possibly the actual map sensor.

Re: EF XR6 Died - HELP

Vavle spring... Mines done 220,000 hard k's and its singing.
Still runs hard to the limiter (even though the analog speedo states I'm doing 210km/h :/ .

Sounds like a weird thing for just "putting it flat".

Case.

Re: EF XR6 Died - HELP

Did they look? I mean, it's not just a lifter or snapped rocker arm?
