Fuel dilution cause

2 posts in this topic

Hey all, currently In Japan and couldn't find any previous topics regarding this. I sent an oil sample off just before leaving and unfortunately this is the 3rd one showing fuel dilution.


Rebuilt engine that is about 5 years old and done 18,000kms. Did 2 changes in first 1500. Next did 6000km and sampled revealing 6% dilution. Next did 3500km and tested at 4% dilution.


Removed fuel rail housing 6x nismo 740's. Pressurised outside of car and it held and no drops. Rotated Cas with injectors firing into bottles and all visually had good and even spray patterns. Took injectors to be professionally cleaned. They couldn't flow test due to being side feeds. Replaced all o-rings. Replaced Cas as it was fluctuating at all speeds and is now fine.


Just did 7500km of mostly long 150ish km journeys and had 7.7% dilution. I was expecting the Cas to be the major cause.


I'm guessing its either tuning or an injector failing with temperature or at higher speeds etc. injectors are about 15yrs old and done 100,000km.


Thoughts? Thinking about reducing cold enrichment and re-sample. Any other ideas?
