Re: Twinair valve actuator oil filter

IanM

I had the exact same problem last year. Came up immediately on carrying out an Oil change and doing an oil change reset on the Uniair module. Swapped plugs and coils and it always was showing a misfire on cylinder 1. Improved once warmed up.

Problem was completely resolved initially by disconnecting the pre cat lambda sensor (to prove it) and then replacing it once a new one was obtained.

A very off sequence of circumstances but yours seems the same. Multiecuscan doesn't help much for me as the Lambda 1 volts field has always been blank.

Re: Twinair valve actuator oil filter

I've not had the misfire warning since the initial one, although I've now got an incredible amount of turbo lag when the engine has been labouring for a few minutes (going up a long steep hill or after some 'spirited' driving). It's almost as if the wastegate is becoming sticky and slow or I've got an air leak which only appears when the engine is incredibly hot.



Oh well, I can live with it until it dies.

Re: Twinair valve actuator oil filter

Hi,

After reading of this epic I also bought the actuator oil filter for my Twiair.
Last weekend I changed this filter for the new one and what I can say is that it is waste of many (33 in NL).
Old filter in my Fiat about 60000km is not dirty and the breather valve works good.
I drive on SHELL 0W-30 C2/C3 changed each 20000km.

Kind regards,
Marcin
Thanks The Panda Nut thanked for this post

But just think of the peace of mind this 33 has bought you...
