Well, the Corrado is running really nice so it's time to
get back to my rocco. Ever since I washed the engine bay it hasn't
been running right, well I did the obvios replace distributor, plugs,
rewired + from strater to battery and ran extra wire from alt to
battery, cleaned up the grounds, checked and set ignition timing.
(16v 87 Scirocco)
I did a compression test, now the Bentley says to keep the car WOT
while reading compression? Is this necessary? anyways this is what i
aint this a little high?? Well the car runs like complete crap now, I
swear its valve timing thst's wayyy off, here's the symptoms
the car is slow, boggy, slow to rev up in gear and slowto speed up,
it takes me forever and a day to get to 45 and I think I top out at
60mph in it in 4th..5th gear i just loose speed. The car has
absolutely no power and the engine does shake quite a bit more than
it should, also exhaust is very put put puttery.
Setting cam timing does'nt look that hard, but I don't want to mash a
valve. I can't find the timing mark on the cam sprocket, theres no
hash mark on one of the teeth, what the heck??, and have no idea
where to look or what I need to remove to see the crank timing mark
and the dampner mark. Is all this stuff visible from above the engine
thanks and its nice to be back.
