I thought in the last few videos you were adding coolant?

No sir. I wad half attempting to top off after bleeding off air, and stupidly losing coolant from forgetting to put cap on etc etc, and half attempting to make my mixture 50/50.

I have never once seen milkshake oil, I literally check the cap after every shutdown. I also don't see any abnormal coolant bubbling, I added CLR if you see "tiny bubbles" because I took my Stat housing off today and... YAAAAAH! HORROR so. Gonna give it one more super amaze-balls flush before inserting a stat.. the was no stat and it was free-flowing the whole time.

I also see the re-emergence of a fuel power delivery problem (power to the fuel pump.) Here is that video.

Now don't get me wrong, I'm not TRYING G to blow a head gasket, but I may be inclined to put sealer in, to "help" the situation.. I torqued it down as Damm good as I could given everything that went wrong and my lack of money for more appropriate or time-intensive repairs..

I can get the car to stall by wiggling fuel pump wires.

Gotcha!

The fuel pump wiring looks like 20 year old wiring to me. Typical of 20 year old vehicles.

Have you tried cleaning the IAC valve on the throttle body ?

If I can find someone competent, I will check it out.

Been driving for the past hour. Stopped about 4 times ...

What it does:

1. Runs perfect
2. Tenperature gauge slowly but surely creeps up..
3. I pull over, leave car to "IGN" (Ignition/run position ??) To let fan come on and cool it down . (I also sometimes hear the fan when the car shuts off.)
4. Within 5 minutes, temperature is back normal. These past two times, it has bee within the past 2 minutes, and fan even shut off early.

What could be going on?

Well, I think 2016 is going to be GREAT!

And, I say this, because, before doing anything else on the Honda engine, I quietly webt out, after waking up, and decided to do a... Compression test.

And, I came to the conclusion, that. THIS time. The reason the engine will not start.. IS:

... It did not "jump time"
... It doesn't have No Spark
It doesn't have a clogged Fuel Filter..
It is not out of gas, I am filling that tank today anyways, via a gas can..
And it may no longer have an air restriction..
And it's not "a wire that gives power to the Fuel Pump" ...

It is this: STUPID LOW COMPRESSION. 100-100-100-0 (1-2-3-4.)

Therefore, today, I take anything of value out of it, and make plans, somehow someway, to get a D16Z6 up in there.

A Y8 (or Y7? idk) or any kind of custom build, or 94-95 Teggy LS engine.. Those sound wonderful, but with the helper monkeys I will likely use to do this at THEIR HOUSE NOT MINE, EVEN IF I HAVE TO PAY FOR A TOW, I think a stock Z6 bolt-up would be great. I may even consider paying more for an engine from Lacey Auto Parts, that I can HEAR RUN, this time. Been down that road before.

No more paper towel things, EVER. It even ran decent just before it got sucked in. Lasted a little more than a day, of a sweet riding engine, relatively..

Better flow radiator, AC on right, all for the D16 going in. Z6.

Oh.. I also work for Advance Auto Parts now.

:good:

Plugging the vacuum leak with paper towels was probably not the best idea. I have used screws, bolts or even line plugs to plug them in the past. Are you sure there isn't paper towel holding one of the valves open?

I'm not sure, but I made serious attempt to dislodge it today. And I think I may have done it.

It is unscientific as hell, but I think I feel power slowly returning to the engine. Since we were all skeptical about this engines chances, anyways.
