    Okay, so before solving the trouble code... I've got to address the oil issue. I'll take it to the mech tomorrow. It's koreanLK i hope they'll do a good diagnosis of the problem., Just to further clarify, shouldn't a oil burning issue show it self with a oily spark plug end? Or rather a wet spark plug? And a head gasket issue showing itself again with a bubbling radiator and possibly engine oil in it? The engine is running super super smooth.... It might be my lack of knowledge probably. I'll get it checked anyway and let you guys know about the diagnosis. Thank you for your valuable share of knowledge.

    yes, that i did a few days back.....then again i didn't mind it all the much.... no i haven't, thats the best way to go about it, but i just wanted to get a small idea as to what to expect once i take it to the mech. btw, on side note, can i get an emissions test done in order to get a better idea about the issue im having? i mean if i upload the data can the experts hear get a better idea? if so i can get it done within the next 24 hours.

    You mean faculty 02 sensor making the engine not run right (to rich) and there by making the Cat-con go bad?

    192,000km's But it sure does not run so, it runs super smooth for that milage,(one reason i got it at 185000.) And again, about the oil burning problem, shouldn't the engine run really rough and shouldn't i see a bluish smoke out the exhaust? I see none of these signs except the smell... And i did happen to pull-out two sparkplugs out, cylinder 1 and 3 and the ends look normal. I don't see any signs of oil. Which kinda brings out the obvious question, am i leaking oi? No I'm not. I see a little bit of damp ness on the timing belt cover and that's pretty much it no puddles of oil underneath... Doesn't explain the 500ml per month. This is a rather unusual problem i guess, i feel like replacing the cat-con just for the sake of it, but the oil consumption? And code..

    hi, as you may have already seen in the description, i am having a p0420 engine code for a catalyst efficiency in bank 1 (4 cylinder engine). one problem ive noticed is that sometimes after a rather short trip of say about 5-10km i do get a very strong smell from the exhaust, strong to the point my eyes tear( or at least i smell it.) plus i always have to top off engine oil every 3-4 weeks or so with about 400ml - 500ml of oil. (using sae 40 caltex.) are these problems somehow related to the p0420? i will check the spark plug ends tomorrow for oil. the engine definitely is running as it should, and it runs very smooth except for very very rare occasions with small random misfires, new plugs would do i guess. i mean if the engine is burning oil, it should run rough and idle different right? as per the code, how should i go about diagnosing it. please do leave your ideas on this....

    Cheap spray cleaner?

    Hi, So ive been looking for some spray cleaners (carb and brake clean) to used on some of my upcoming projects, and came across a brand named 'getsun', it looks local....but very cheap compared to some good brands like '3M' etc. Is this 'getsun' brand really cheap like its price? Or is it actually a bargain? Has anyone used this product? Please leave your suggestions. Thanks in advance.

    Change from fan clutch to electric cooling fan

    Yes you are correct, that switch will have to go to the coolant temperature sensor location, but doing so will cut the signal to the ECU, will that effect drastically?

    Change from fan clutch to electric cooling fan

    Hi ajm, Thank you for your response, yes i thought of those issues, but there are fan controllers with the kits they sell do they? I've seen alot a diy's on YouTube and most of them come with a switch, and I've seen some with a temperature probe as well, About the battery and alternator though im not too sure. But again it would be great help if you tell me where i can find these fan kits. Thanks.
  9. Hi, To kick things off, i am by no means a pro in automotive mods, nor do i totally understand the consequences from any modifications i do to my vehicle. I own a Nissan Laurel c34 with the RB20E under the hood, this particular engine has a thermostatic fan clutch for the radiator, ive already replaced it once, but the problem is the annoying sound it makes. So my solution was to change to a electronic fan ( which again i do not know if itll solve the problem) Now what i wanna know is, will this bring harm to the engine in terms of cooling which i doubt since all that matters is the amount of air flow. And are there any custom kits for this particular application, if so where can i find it? Again, im just a beginner and i dont know jack about cars. Take it easy on me Thanks in advance.
