Maintenance, Fluids, and Technical Articles / Pcv issue or turbo seals?
« Last post by 13shonuff on March 07, 2023, 04:51:15 PM »
I have a 2013 SHO. after my atp turbos blew up from turbine housing cracking and atp not servicing or selling these sets anymore I was left with $2500 oily paper weights I decided to hold off on upgrading the turbos again. I got billet chra for a set of blown stockers from work.(19 years auto tech) I had a lot of smoke which was expected, turbo blew and was down 3 qts that went directly into the down pipe and so on, it was leaking out the tail pipe going on The flatbed when it blew and then sat Al winter. Anyways after driving hard and normal it got better. Now it only smokes on decal. Bad like I just did a top end cleaning service(like sea foam). After a couple minutes of no boost driving it is gone but a hint of oil burning is still there… I go under car and investigate the new turbos.. rear right looks good, no signs of oil around turbo or in the pipes. The front left turbo is leaking around the band clamp, and the lower pipe is pooling with oil. My question how common Is it to get a bad chra, or turbo. Also could it be that I’m building up pressure in the crank case and it’s pushing oil up the return line? Or another issue with the Pcv system. When I take of the line to the Pcv valve it is oily more than normal.. I have great compression, no leaks In leak down test. Feed and drain oil lines clear. I am leaning towards a new chra because correct me if I’m wrong if I was building excess pressure in the crank case it would be pooling out of both turbos? Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Car has hpfp, lpfp, Catless dp, cai, magnaflow exhaust with third car delete, plugs, thermostat, custom intercooler and piping and big, 50/50 meth, e30, 3 bar, oil separator on left bank And billet wheel stock turbos now

still not seeing the adverr values. but i checked my logs for our 2007 edge, and on cold startup or warm, vct advance should pretty much be 0. as you get moving, you will see vct advance values rise and fall significantly as you accelerate and decelerate.

again it is the error values / deviation from desired that are significant. so from the pics posted, the errors are 12.5 and 7.5 degrees? that is significant deviation, and since in a previous incident you were able to cycle the ignition to get it to behave, could very well be caused by the solenoids, wiring, or pcm.

there have been previous reports of wiring pins being loose in the solenoid connectors, so a good place to start. then check the resistance between the solenoid harness and the corresponding pins on the pcm. might be a short in there somewhere. clean and grease the pcm pins.  and check battery voltage / cold cranking amps.

i am sure the manual provides a more thorough step by step for checking wiring issues, if the tips above do not work, time to go full out.

there have been tsbs for later MYs for other model lines saying codes pop when dirt gets into the solenoids, and is fixed by cycling them 10 times iirc. have not heard it in the SHO context tho.

Greetings from Nebraska.

yes recheck the timing chain marks, make sure they line up perfectly.  if phasers are worn, that can make it difficult without replacing phasers.  even if phasers are good, sometimes you have to fiddle with the cams and timing chain to get them all to work in synchrony.

should also change the vct solenoids while in there. all metal shavings accumulate in their filter baskets and since you have to take the valve covers off anyway, do them this time around.

most if not all dealers do it this way unless you have a working relationship with them. CYA.

there's always little items that are not covered like hoses and such that can end up being a PITA. but with premiumcare, you should have coverage for pretty much everything but maintenance type items, which are usually listed on the brochure.

Thank you again for this great info. I took the car to the dealer & everything was covered! It was comforting to have the knowledge your info provided instead of worrying about it.

Would it spool up a little quicker?
