Is the Salvage Auction Ferrari's Engine Bad? I Started Taking it Apart and Found Multiple Issues!

After struggling to diagnose the Salvage Auction Ferrari 360s engine misfiring issues, I finally perform a compression test, and also remove the intake manifold. Here's what I found that looks like it might be the source of our issue.

  • EV Ferrari. I did not realize how badly designed a gas Ferrari is. Change spark plugs Forget It. Change intake manifold gaskets Forget It. Man Ferrari made these super cars way way to complicated. I will hold off for a EV Ferrari. No intake manifold no engine block no transmission no timing belt. EV Ferrari light fast no or low maintenance. Buy a Tesla Roadster maybe.

  • still think it's an issue with the electric feed to 2 and 5 fuel injectors, simply because when you swapped the rails over it still registered 2 and 5 being the problem! The compression test proved good and so it's gotta be fuel or spark, so maybe check the feed to 2 and 5 spark plugs too.

  • Did you get it to run smooth

  • I’m sorry man, I just think there is more wrong with that engine than your optimism. You actually think oil leaked out the valve covers and ran into your intake blowing quarts of oil back at your air boxes. I promise that never happened. Your heads are leaking oil. Probably not just through the intake but also into your exhaust. I’m sure it’s clogging up your catalytic converters too. I’ve just finished the video and breezed through the others and you haven’t done a compression test on all 12 cylinders. Cause trust me. Your leaky valve covers or over filling the engine with oil is not flooding your air boxes with oil. This other recommended video of your about the wrecked Bentley looks like it suffered lots of front right side damage, but this car that has had wrong computers in it, shows no one has taken the engine out tore it apart and started back at the basics. The compression test would be smart. Removing the heads would be smart. To jump to the conclusion leaky valve covers filled your intake with oil is silly! WILL YOU PLEASE TELL US HOW MANY POUNDS THIS CAR COST YOU?

    • You NEVER remove Cylinder heads from your car just to remove them unless utterly necessary. For one you break a Factory seal and most of your problems can diagnosed without even taking your top end of the engine apart. What hes doing right now is by far simple and somewhat easy. You ALWAYS test the simple things first, if the problem still exist, continue to check all variables and if things still don't work then you consider removing Heads. Also if Valve Seals were bad, he would have blue smoke coming out of exhaust.

  • Nope it’s not getting oil into your intake unless it is leaking oil through the valves or getting blow by around the piston rings. In your first video your air filter seals looked like they got really really really hot. I think this engine is shot. It was probably rebuilt to the state of “not being locked up”, in order to catch a fish like you. How much did you pay for this car? Do you really think it ended up at auction over a broken piece of passenger floor? That v12 would run on 6. Curious to see if you ever fix this motor.

  • Why do you think it’s a “valve cover gasket leak?” Why not figure it’s the valve seals in the head that are leaking quarts of oil into your intake? Is this a non-Intrusive engine? Or did it skip time and bend a couple valves crack a couple stems? Have you done a compression test on all cylinders? That would have been a smart place to start.

    Joel LouzyJoel Louzy5 วันที่ผ่านมา
  • Dude I skipped through like 3 videos. The ones where it had the wrong computers and a bad transmission, but in the first video I commented that, “there is no way you were getting quarts of oil in the air box by over filling it with oil”. Your entire power train is screwed. You bought a lemon that was inadequately repaired to trick someone into buying it. I’m going to skim this video too, let’s find out.

    • Test how healthy your engine is and if your engine is wearing properly. You also do know asking google the same question would have given you a much faster answer..... You know, since you are already on the internet.

    Superb ElementsSuperb Elements6 วันที่ผ่านมา
    • Costs more, doesn't look as good on camera and from the stories I've heard, not all professional techs are that great, they might check all the complex stuff that they can get your money for and end up missing simple stuff that might be the actual problem. It's not like in my country, if the tech doesn't fix it but ends up asking a lot of money, you can lodge a report and an investigation will be done. Therefore, over here, sending it to a mechanic is always the best way .

  • Your problem was probably a Mass airflow meter covered in oil. It is common when the car gets overfilled. it will keep acting weird if soaked in oil. clean intake manifold and sensors and cross your fingers

  • I can not do what you are doing. Whew. I'm sure I would have pulled out the little hair I have left doing the manifolds. I can't wait to see how this ends. If you are going to sell it when you are done. I hope you get a big pay out. But then a salvage title might hinder that. Good luck Guru.

I barely know anyone that would even try doing what you're doing with these cars and they got 70k worth of tools...hats off sir, keep doing what you doing, it makes me cringe sometimes the things you do and somethings you say but all in all, good job 😄 👏

  • the rich kid that once owned this is laughing as he's driving away in his new rari that daddy bought him

    trevbottrevbot11 วันที่ผ่านมา
    • I don't know about that. Clearly the previous owner didn't care about the car or how much it cost since he flew open the hood damaging it and the windshield. The previous owner clearly left the roof open with all that dried mud water all over the dash. Probably how the immobilizer got damaged in the first place. Never bothered to clean up the water mess after so clearly the improper immobilizer never took the car far. That kind of carelessness come from easy money never earned. Thing that throws out the rich boy or girl theory is the computer immobilizer being from a standard vehicle instead of the F1. Kind of a hillbilly way to know the problem but improper replacement. You know, a little education is a dangerous thing repair. If was a rich kid how did the person get that screwed up? Did he replace it but the car still wouldn't run right so threw a tantrum by driving over a curb then throwing open the hood? Maybe it was a family member mechanic that knew just enough to be dangerous? Why else trust the guy to fix it unless he knew the guy a little too well? Kind of fun to look at the details of this car and try and see it's history.

    • It wasn't the clamp that was the trouble, if you've ever taken a hose off a fitting before you know it's pretty much bonded, so you can use a pick tool or some penetrating oil to help it slide but there was no room. Oh, sorry why did I type this to you, you clearly know exactly how this job goes...
