Thank you for the kind advice with checking my CSI. It was
indeed blocked, I paid the visit to Harbor Freight, and the
little ultrasonic cleaner did the trick. I will comment that
the two second ‘spray’ was actually a jet, and not a fine spray.
I wish to check the AAV. The hose that led topside from the
AAV to …somewhere pulled off the unit with my hand, it was
very loose. I found it a long process to loosen the two
downward bolts that held the AAV to the engine. Now I can
pull it a very little way from the engine but no more -
doubtless held by the other vacuum hose behind, I can feel
the elastic resistance.
What are the consequences of my giving it a firm pull ?
should there be enough slack in the hose behind the unit to
allow it to come forward, or will I be facing a trip under
the car to reinstall the hidden hose ?
There is little help in the parts manual or even the Jaguar
CD-ROM on this subject, so all comments are appreciated.
My reason for attempting to pull the AAV is that it is not
easy to visually inspect if I leave it in place. And I like
tinkering with her.
