Welp after three years of reliable motoring my poor QR started sounding like a subaru and pooring smoke out yesterday. Pulled the plugs and found a small lake of coolant in cylinders 3 and 4. The oil seems to look clean and doesnt seem abnormally full. But ive been noticing my coolant and oil have been disapearing lately so idk how bad my cylinder walls are anymore or if i hydrolocked it at all. Im going to try and pull the motor this weekend and take a look see. Im not familiar with these motors yet so if anyone local to the Bothell area wants to help ill have beer.

Damn pimp.
We can't afford to have a NW B15 down, we're already low in numbers.

I'm not a pro, but I can help where and when I can. PM me your info and when is a good time to lend a hand.

Sounds like you have 2 problems. The coolant in the cylinders could be fixed with a head gasket... unfortunately if you're losing oil you're right to assume the engine needs to come out. Sorry to hear it.

Damn.

Been pushing it too hard? Seems like it was just yesterday when we had our short meetup.

Yo Steve, how many miles does it have?

And I wasn't invited. I see how it is...
