I'm fighting against an overheating issue currently - the inlet manifold jiggle valve is the last part I did not check properly...
- I noticed the hose coming from the inlet manifold jiggle valve to the expansion tank is cooler than the hose coming from the other jiggle valve.
Also the flow in the expansion tank gets a little weaker when pressing the hose from the inlet manifold but stops completely when pressing the hose coming from the other jiggle valve.
Does this indicate a blocked valve in the inlet manifold??
- How to reach the lower bolts that hold the inlet manifold to the engine?
I have the bigger metal manifold fitted, not the black plastic one. Tried to remove it today but failed to reach the lower bolts.
Any ideas or workaround??
