Cool questions and answers about Variable Exhaust System......

I noticed a rubber hose coming out in the belly pan near the radiator leaking a nasty black sludge. I followed the hose and it is connected to a small electronic device which is connected by hoses to the VES (I think).

Anyways I was wondering if that sludge is normal, and how do I properly clean or service the VES? Thanks NUTZ

took it all apart today...it was gummed up pretty good. I could barely get them out of the motor. in my exploratory surgery I discovered that the spring that goes in the VES cap that operates the valve was broken in half and had threaded itself together so it was about half the normal size. couldn't have been working very good, but not bad enough for me to notice. well...on short notice(meaning by 4 am tomorrow) I was not able to get a replacement spring so I had to get creative and splice the spring back together. I threaded it around itself so it is just a little shorter than the good one and tied it together with 9-ply nylon waxed lacing cord in 3 places. now it is almost like it should be which has gotta be better than how it was with a spring half the size it needs. after cleaning all the VES parts , replacing a gasket, and carefully putting everything back together it fired up 1st pull and barely a pull at that. can't wait to give it hell tomorrow. hope that spring holds up!:p
