Re: Exhaust problems..can you help?
no no no its not a air check valve. Its a filter just before the thermactor air system bypass seloniode (I can't spell for crap), you have it as part one. The image just loaded. I got about 20 of those pieces of crap. You can clean those with cleaner degreaser. The stuff you have in blue "V" is in the wrong direction (goes down). The pink "V" in the hose between the filter and the thermactor crapy la do da thingy is the wrong direction too (goes toward the front of car). Your putting force on the engine and it cause it to stall. The entire line you drew connects to the back of the heads, exhaust side. Every time the exhaust valve opens it puts some exhaust in that tube to be tested by sensor to adjust the engine fuel/air mixture. It rarely goes bad and is really not needed unless you live in a emission zone state. when the tube is left wide open it loses back pressure and will perform bad. I think all you need to do is flip it over, all will be fine.
