RustyRuu Posted December 30, 2016 Share Posted December 30, 2016 I built the bottom half of my old ej251, piston rings rebuilt heads engine and rod bearings all the seals in the master gasket kit from subaru all new timing components plus water pump i've put it through about 2000 miles and i have a lot to deal with, to start i have two CELs one P0852(neutral switch input circuit high), and P1507(idle control malfunction). need to resistance test it (neutral switch) but i have no mulltimeter, i can only check the connections and wiring at this point. i did put a used one from an 09 forester on when the engine went in since the old one was causing some driving issues and it smoothed some things out but did end up giving me a code, eventually. also my coolant has a blockage, i think its just my thermostat since the bottom hose is cold to touch after running, it does not overheat or come close, i have an OEM one ready to go in. how much coolant do you lose doing this and i imagine you have to burp the system agian? my oil leak is the last problem, pressure valve on the oil pump is best case scenario, the actual seal on the oil pump is the worst case, but i have to open the timing cover to find out. how do you do this right? as in how do you clean that area properly to not contaminate your new seal during the 24 hour cure time? just clean it up real good then keep cleaning some more and then maybe a couple more times, should you drain the motor of oil to try and avoid getting any possible drips you might get if its full. thanks for reading and any advise you might have.
