It's poo poo. They changed the formula from being ether based (Which WILL work - as well as being dangerous as it had a habit of blowing inlet manifolds to pieces and setting fire to carbys if you sprayed in too much) to be a fairly tame hydrocarbon based that basically isnt much better than petrol down the inlet.

I have spent three weeks trying to get this thing to start - I have today replaced the harness FOR NO GODDAMN RESULT. It is ruining my brain. I have spent I dont know how much. I am angry, I'm having meltdowns and honestly right now the only thing I can think of is that something is fundamentally wrong internally but I cant see what it is as I'm sure it's got spark, it's got fuel and it has enough compression that it should at least run a bit.

Nothing. Absolutly goddamn loving nothing. I have also changed every sensor in the car for known working ones.

What are they actually for?

Elon Musk porn

So this loving Outback..... took the inlet off (again... Im getting to down to a fine science now, basically ten minutes) to have a look at the valves to confirm they are doign what they should be.

So on a opposite opposed engine, 1 and 2 are 360 degrees opposed - ie as one cylinder fires, the other is completing exhaust stroke, remember a four stroke is 720 degrees for one firing. Thence they are both at TDC at the same time. So marking off the crakshaft for when we confirm no 1 really is at TDC, we should get the inlet begin to open at the same relavie crank angle. So, we get visible opening on No 2 at about 15 degrees ATDC. Which is a tooth out, it should be be at start 4 ATDC. Okay fiiiiine the factory manual actually isnt that great at exactly trying to put the chains on but there a bunch of online stuff that shows it much better. There's also as I have now worked out a specific number of teeth at a certain angle which has the cams exactly where they should be. Fine. It's not an uncommon mistake and not engine lethal but the car should be able to start from that. And lets face it it maybe the valves are beginning to open but not enough to be truly visible until 20 ATDC. So in reality that has a chance of being as it should be.

NO 1...... now we found a failed AVCS unit on this when dong a sanity check of the chain timing a week ago. Ooooooh boy and THIS time I can see No 1 is trying to open at full advance for AVCS or about 47 BTDC. That hasnt got a hope in hell of starting. So either the cam wheel was put on with the AVCS advance fully on (It works hydrallically so it should not have been able to, the default position is cam at full retard) OR I got another failed camwheel? Yeah nah, two in a row is prolly not a chance.

Well anyway the whole timing cover is coming off again ..... loving hell. Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck timing chains. I never thought I would have longed for timing belts butGG at least to test all of this nonsense you can have the timing belt exposed - you cant on a timing chain Subaru as the cover forms part of the sump and thats 2 litres you will be short so it wont get oil pressure...!

Oh yeah I found that out as well. 5.3 litres for a regular oil change, 5.6 oil change with filter..... 7.8(!!!!!!) litres after a full teardown. The manual didn't make that clear....... it only lists oil change until you go looking in the full specs sheet and find it buried in an appendix. So yeah if you open up a EZ30R expect another two litres of oil to try and stain your garage AFTER the oil in the pan is dropped.

gently caress I hate Subaru timing chain motors. I;d have had this sorted weeks ago otherwise.

In THIS loving CAR WONT START news, the timing chain assembly didn't give me a single second's worth of a fight putting it back together. Not even resetting the chain tensioners was an issue, in fact it collapsed back and I was able to pin it into position first go.

I'm now at the point where I can reassemble a EJ30 timing 15 minutes - A skill I did not wish to have 2 months ago. I know every bolt's torque spec off the top of my head. The inlet will take me under 5 minutes to reassemble. I am not pleased I know how to do this. It is much like the former skills in carby rebuilds I had years ago - a skill hard won but I did NOT like having.

So inlet back on, rehook fuel, put timing cover back on without Three-Bond (I really dont want to go through the mess and cramps to redo the gasket seal if the engine doesnt start at all) and try to kick it to life. If it does, I'll deal with the two liters of oil the timing case will drop and I'll do all the poo poo I need to do to make it drive. If it doesnt.....

It's 6 guys, a coffin and Astronomica time for this loving motor and car I aint gonna waste another second on it. It either starts or it dies, full stop

I mean when they talk about the body ripping off the chassis - isnít that what still happens with literally every body on frame vehicle, from Land Rovers to F250 to semi trucks, in a big enough impact?

Given that the second RV is literally half made from wood, I would imagine that it would take a significantly bigger impact to rip a F250's body off its chassis. I'm pretty sure even a Model T would be safer in crash at this point.

More than killing Aust built Holdenís, theyíve shuttered the brand entirely. Ford stopped building cars locally a while back too, along with Toyota. You canít put it down to taxation, itís far more complex than that. Small volumes in terms of the Falcon and Commodore, at least Commodore had export markets beyond Au and NZ, but still tiny. Everything else volume came from SE Asia, which I assume is cheaper labour, so thatís Ranger, Colorado and I think our Fiesta and Focus too. Aust govt not willing to pay subsidies any more while they happily will for mining interests, possibly because breaking the automotive unions got them hard. Then you had typical GM mismanagement. Profit shifting - Commodore was entirely designed and built in Australia, but the IP was owned by GM then licensed back to GMH. Their smaller car offerings were garbage. One generation a Barina would be an Opel Astra, which had its own weird European problems, the next it would be a garbage Daewoo, with another set of issues. Missed the SUV/CUV train, or what they did offer was garbage, with nothing to offer over any of the competitors. The new Commodore fundamentally isnít a bad car, but a FWD/AWD 4cyl or V6 liftback isnít a replacement for a full size RWD V6 or LS powered sedan or wagon.


For a good while, Holden was in fact the biggest export revenue earner in Australia. Holden Engine Company shipped out literally millions of engines around the globe. They also had more than just "tiny" exports to South Africa and China.

It is honestly impressive GM could take Holden from that to being shuttered in a decade. And that whope profit shifting thing..... JFC just how hosed up. It hurt Opel and Vauxhall something chronic too - both never made a profit for 20 years but almost the exact quarter PSA bought them.... suddenly they were both profitable.
