Had an ECM 262 before, rough idle, white smoke, car losing coolant & oil....<p><br>ECM 262 was due to MAF, which was completely dirty... and soaked in oil. Cleaned in this thread: <A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=118610" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=118610</A><p><br>Rough idle was corrected due to the leak on Downpipe/Turbo connection. Note, I have a 2004 and there is 1 stud in the turbo. The nut itself is oval and is a lock nut. Once removed, just replace it. It was causing the 1st o2 sensor to mis-read whats going on due to the leak before it. That stopped the white smoke. Fix your exhaust leaks a.s.a.p. <p><br>Losing Coolant..... I discovered my where my radiator was leaking, its on the passenger side. I wished MORE people had backed me up on the Mishimoto Aluminum Radiator endeavor. I've gotten 6 Im's personally and I need one now. 25 was the minimum order and 1000 bucks for the R&D. Too late for that. <A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=114438" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=114438</A> <p><br>Losing oil, most of it left due to the track day and using too thin of an oil. Will use 10-40 or 20-40 for track day next time. Blow By sucks, IPD hope your catch can comes soon! <A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=118677" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=118677</A> <p><br>Since I've got most of the car apart from the PTC cleaning, Silicone TCV hoses install, Evolve radiator hose install, DRL Lens removal, Clear Corner lense install, Black headlight surround paint, as well as a 55w Bulb/ballast install. Now add a Radiator replacement, and clean/drain intercooler, T/B Cleaning & PCV system Replacement. <p>Did anyone need any pics of anything?<p>Also, i'm taking <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0"> donations. Just leave it by the door to my garage. <p> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0">

I dropped off a bag of gold by the door, make sure you pick it up. Hopefully it'll pay for some of your costs.<p>But glad to hear everything good to go. How dirty is your TB and your intake mani? I'm getting ready to clear out my flame trap and plan on cleaning all of that. Was even considering getting my injectors professionally cleaned while they are out.

Many of us had our fingers crossed and were praying for you with those aweful sounding symptoms. Glad to hear the good outcome. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">
