Got the replacement throttle body adapter in and it's running just about as good as it was - but hope we can make it better.. Need to pick up some carb cleaner so I can do as you suggest, but what adapter do I need for this to do a compression test?
OK.. Thank you. I'll probably just pick up a new compression test kit, looks like they aren't very expensive. And maybe a couple deep sockets.. I just tried a 14mm on spark plug and it's too small.. and 15, 16, and 17 are missing . Most of these tools were inherited from my dad when he passed. I did not inherit his mechanic skills or his (dis)organizational preferences.. Checked the service manual, it helpfully just says "2. Remove spark plugs".
Update: Disconnected TBAP sensor and removed the bolt but it just spins around, couldn't figure out how to remove in order to clean it.. No cracks or tears. Looks like a previous owner may have already replaced this boot, it feels newer and more flexible than the rest.
Attempted a compression test, after about 5 cranks on the one side it was reading 125. But, then it started popping.. I'm probably not doing something right.
Just to be sure I'm doing the test correctly - am I removing both plugs at the same time, then connecting the tester to each cylinder and cranking 5-8 times, or just remove one plug at a time? Do I need to disable the fuel injectors somehow?
Also - any tips on accessing the TBAP sensor? I couldn't get it separated from the hose/adapter? Jman, tell me how many cases of patron to send your way.........
