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

Pubblicato il 18 ago 2019
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.

  • I would love to quality check this guys work 😂

  • STOP SAYING SCREW!! it's a bolt! Or a nut!

  • The UF on the tee shirt stands for. UGLY FUCKER

  • Money pit on wheels!

  • Man I’m in love with your videos, so interesting!

  • It's a way less expensive and complicated car but I had a mis shift on a Toyota that absolutely bent me over and shafted me for weeks in freezing cold weather. Turns out the original wiring harness into the throttle position sensor had been a touch to short when built and had broken inside the external coating. The last owner spent nearly £3k on a gearbox and didnt sort it. It cost me £25 and a lot of swearing but it ran like a dream. The moral - it's very often the little things that create these issues and rather than throw money at it,go through it methodically piece by piece to make sure everything is as expected. Take pictures or videos of all the connections before you strip them down then you wont forget. Great watching this Ferrari being worked on though.

  • if its got a distributor it could be dust in shit floating around in side the distributor cap causing a random miss fire

  • Why did you cut the pipe? You’d just said it had a jubilee clip at each end - just unscrew one end.

  • Here's how you fix any Ferrari just get rid of it and buy a Toyota!😎

  • The Ferrari 360 engine has a variable valve timing system fitted to the exhaust camshaft (the intake valve timing is fixed). The critical part to this system is called the “Exhaust Phase Variator” (part #190042) and is fitted between the cam pulley wheel and the camshaft itself. They go bad they suck and Ferrari can kiss my royal axx.

  • Sounds like you are just better off taking your convertible assembly off trying to cut Corners that's what happens!

  • What a JUNK

  • I will never buy a Farrari

  • Bad sensors ?

  • Remove convertible stuff to take out the manifold?? Weehm. NO, not neccesary.

  • Plug your diagnostics computer in, and press ‘control alt deleted ‘

  • Ironic, only rich people can afford to buy junk.

  • The most beautiful cars on the side of the road.

  • I like the music at 06.44, does anyone know what it is?

  • Temperamental crap

  • Never buy a green car, bad luck.

  • One can't help wondering how many people buy a Ferrari then decide to take it to pieces?

  • Sam, you just ruined the story that the Ferrari dealer tells owners about removing the rear part of the top to do injector maintenance, big savings to owners!

  • Switch them over and do a test... Hmmm... That is what we Amiga guys say about the even and odd CIA chips as well. 😁😁😁

  • 10:20 oh that's why ferraris catch fire :D

  • And now you know why they are so expensive to repair- you need to hire a contrortionist for a week to undo all the fittings.

  • Love your can do attitude. As an amateur I feel your pain and frustration! But we can't walk away from a fight..... .

  • Ya have to clear the codes I'm thinking

  • He scares me😬

  • Mark your harnesses and take pics works for me on engine disassembly

  • Every time I complain about working on my Audi I'll come back and watch this video. What a PITA

  • *Engineering Design Betrayal = Ferrari*

  • For as much as these Ferrari's cost they are not very reliable. Overrated!

  • pistons are done... bro

  • Fender covers Sam :) Please :) . Please don't place parts onto the paint finish.

  • Very cool to see the internals of that car thanks for the video

  • You need a quick jack!! Service all my vehicles Boxster Cayenne Rabbit TR6 Jetta Range Rover

  • Should of just dropped the motor, you are going to hate trying to get that intake back on....

  • You guys are crazy you have to have an Italian Ferrari mechanic with you if you're going to be messing around in there or you could be messing around in there the rest of your natural life

  • won't believe me..Ferrari engines have always misfired. This one reason why they performed so well.

  • I have a long piece of hardwood I use to listen to fuel injectors when the engine is running. Listen that they all sound the same. If one is clicking different it may be faulty. Also, check that voltage is the same in all of them.

  • As a Ferrari mechanic.. You should've dropped the motor out. It makes everything easier and faster in the long run. Youll see why once you put it back together

  • Just buy an American car

  • Take photos painters tape write numbers down and make a diagram. This will refresh your memory duh

  • How about world the source of the oil is? Don't do no good to clean it if you don't fix it

  • Always put the gaskets to the intake and not to the engine using a high temp Grease works well. The gaskets will stick but if they're misaligned or you have some sort of problem you can move them or even remove them without damaging them. Polymere or other type of gasket sealant will not give you this luxury and has to be cleaned and a new gasket used if you happen to have any sort of misalignment or problem. Causing expense and hours of Labor lost. And if you haven't second mishap you don't get to go crazy LOL

  • Take the computer, get it to ****, install dual quads & straight pipes. Job done.

  • Just buy a used sport'll blow most cars off the road.

  • And compression test is archaic tech which tells you little about and engines integrity, get yourself a "cylinder balance gauge" developed by the legendary Smokey Yunick.

  • And randomly have you ensured the ECU's software has been updated with the latest and greatest from the dealer?

  • Nope!

  • Sell it and buy a mid 60s Mustang. Way cooler to drive and SO cheap to fix. IMHO the only Ferraris worth owning are those built before 1971. Thats why they are worth gold. I did my apprenticeship in Australia at the then only Ferrari distributor in Sydney. We had to employ and house a factory mechanic. His work bay looked like an operating theatre at the Mayo Clinic. It was a skills transfer on an epic scale. It all went downhill when Fiat bought Ferrari and Enzo died. There are a lot of Fiat parts in them now, specially the engine accessories etc.

  • They aren’t as complicated as you might think. To fix the problem your having try command z.

  • Thanks for reminding me why I will NEVER buy a used sports car 🤦‍♂️

  • What a junk🤣🙄🙄

  • USAG tools for the Ferrari owner.

  • How could you make this more complicated?

  • I always take lots of pictures of where parts, wires,hoses go back on..

  • *C y l i n d e r 7 a n d 8*

  • Was it missing at idle or under load?

    • What were the fuel trims when missfiring?
