water in the exhaust '93 323

Hi Folk:

My car is vexing me so I'm consulting the mass mind for intervention clues.

It's supposed to be a leaky head gasket, but I replaced that twice, milled the head, used 4 kinds of block...

OEM head thickness and gasket shim?

I have a '93 323 w/ 1.6 engine. the head has been milled 2x. it's not terribly warped because the cam shaft turns easily (un-oiled) but w/ enough resistance to be noticeable if you're looking for it...

check for spark and gas on the plugs. if there's no gas, maybe the injector connection plug is loose, or the fuel filter is plugged. get a manual from the library and read the tuneup section. :)

'93, 323, 1.6 almost flies, but not quite

my 1.6 acts like it's stumbling while on the road but not when idling. it's unnoticeable except once in awhile it zips like it's free at last. the mileage is around 27 mpg. I tightened the exhaust...

how many degrees before tdc?

Hi Tanprotoge: thanks for your knowledge. You should be on Mazdas payroll.

The ignition timing mark in Chiltons is supposed to be "within 1 BTDC of the specified degree" but they don't tell you...

Timing is off

Hi:

I took my '93 323 in for a Calif. smog check. The verdict was the RPM was out of range to verify timing. "will not stabilize in acceptable range".

the timing light won't shine on the...

Fixed. it was the ecu I'd switched in, may have been my fault though. I'd checked for codes in low light after I ran it and put the jumper wire in the wrong hole. the wire smoked & burned in two....

coil/igniter

Thanks Hixx. I think you're right about the coil, the timing light doesn't flash for long periods (sometimes) even though there's spark & the engine s running, that seems like weak spark, or maybe ...

car dies & starts sporadically

Hi: I have a 93 323 w/ 1.6. It runs fine when it runs but isn't reliable. right now it won't start. when it started giving trouble, it would fire occasionally while cranking, the firing grows closer...

more main relay

I found a relay (main?) next to the ecu that looks about like the one marked fuel relay under the hood. but it has 6 wire connections instead of 4.

a new wrinkle is that the code is clear when...

hixx, you da man! I'll dig it out in the morning. There's one on ebay for $15. Honda had cracked solder problems on their relays, maybe this is the same. I did a milage check, I'm getting 12.5 mpg

Thanks hixx. I got 9.8v. I can't find the main relay. Chilton's description of the main relay is nothing like mine. Mine's rectangular and theirs is poly-sided w/ maybe 2 layers. the manual says the...

new vacuum solenoid clears but the code comes back.

what's being read? what/how does the sensor sense? I was told the solenoid controls the vacuum in the gas tank but that's hearsay (so far). does the sensor read the voltage to the solenoid? if so,...

B2600 bad acceleration

Hi all: my friend's 99 b2500 sputters when he steps on the gas (so embarrassing). OBD2 is clear. Cleaned the MAP sensor. We're currently searching for a pressure gauge above 50 to test gas pressure...
