Here’s the part of the journey most IRpostrs don’t show. Their mistakes and uncertainties. If you own an engine like this you sure as hell are going to be as careful as possible.

Only one rotor fires at a time dude watch this video you’ll see what I’m talking about and how a rotary actually works irpost.info/face/fy-lm-h-y/1HjaxqPJ12rJe48.html 2,3 or 4 rotor they all work the same

Your getting blow by from somewhere maybe the seal on one of the rotors went bad, wankel’s can be a giant PITA when they wanna be but when there running there bulletproof damn near, that’s definitely a blown motor anytime you have milky oil that’s a really bad sign, 20w 50 might be a bit too heavy weight oil for that engine seems like it should be running 10-40 or 10-30, 20-50 is usually for big trucks and heavy duty vehicles you might wanna see what the manufacturer recommends on oil weight

I’ve always thought of a rotary as a kinda three stroke engine
VirusWar پیش 7 ماه
As a programmer, I can tell you that talking while fixing things is the best approach. When just thinking, youre going faster over things and you can miss something, but when talking like youre explaining to someone whats happening youre going over everything and is a lot easier to find the problem. Also, here's me, from debugging all day, to watching a guy fix an unknown problem on his car. Ye my life is interesting.

I understand that very well. Once upon what time that was, I was rebuilding a sportbike motor of a Yamaha FZR400 that just smoked, smoked, and never stopped. We replaced the rings, swapped the cylinders, replaced valve stem seals, swapped the head, checked the oil pressure if we are just too high a number, clogged oil passages, everything. Only thing remain is to replace the entire crankcase! What it turned out to be the reason was the exhaust piping...the oil was all inside the downtubes! Sounds like wast of money and time, but the engine already made about 120,000 km and it is worth it. Still running strong up to the latest update the owner gave. It took more than two days for oil to burn off, after that there is still burned oil smell.

I do enjoy your video content honesty. Even the ranting. Which isn't really senseless and you explain in layman's terms how things work. You talk us through your thought process which i say is cool, and educational for all levels of car enthusiasts! Thanks for posting a potentially embarrassing and personal experience!✌👍👍☺. You got this!!!

It would be weird if it was blowby. Rotary oil seals are damn good, they lap themselves to a perfect seal. My engine still has 20kPa of PCV vacuum in the sump half an hour after shutdown!

Put an exhaust on the dam car, it's not going to kill the power, even with awd you won't be getting traction for full power under 160 mph with downforce giving enough grip
Kurt Sumthinorother
Kurt Sumthinorother پیش 11 ماه
Not grease, it's oil and water. It emulsifies and makes what looks like white lithium grease. You know that in the video but you are avoiding it. Water is pushing the oil out. I haven't seen the problem yet but I already know.
