Any idea what your fluid temps are doing during these track day conditions?

Wow that has bloody low km for an 06.
Very well maintained I'm guessing I don't think this is a common failure?
Well it looks clean at least. How many KM? And what year is it?
Your dead right it was out of line. Next time I'll fuel my ego and copy and paste some text that I dare say will be of no help to the person who...
There seems to be a direct link between sludge and timing chain issues with these engines keeping the engine clean is important. Mate I think they...

I'd believe that I got 5.something out of me trusty VR over a 100km stint once.
I have also found computer incredibly accurate. I've had my Sv6 as low as 6.7 l/100, around town 11.5 consistently.
Swap it back for the Gemi!
Yeah mate hidden part, from memory I think they have magnets in them to help them locate.
Ah ok well it's just been fitted incorrectly then.
Lol that is an absolute joke. Have you had that repaired recently?
That part is for sound deadening although the foam should be fully sealed by bag. The way is looks all scrunched up I would almost guarantee some...

Just Google it
I run 98 in mine for about 6 months. It is definitely happier on it but found little difference in economy.
Good luck to you though mate if your...
Take it to a trans specialist and get it flushed with new oil and filter. How many kays has she done?
What year is it?
Running premium will do sweet FA for your economy. Drive it nice and it will probably settle down.
Don't even bother trying to find a needle in a hay stack. Spend the bucks leave it to the pro's!
It is possible if your driving it hard.
What l/100 is the computer telling you?
These engines can be incredibly economical if driven nicely. The...
That is ugly!!
How many kms?
Just started leaking
Ok thanks might give that a crack.
Crap design by the sound of it.
Ill buy a new cap and try it out.
Fluid level is between hi and low so don't want to take any out.
Hi All, 2012 Sv6 leaking brake fluid through cap. It is not overfull common issue?
Thinking about buying new cap.
Purge valve solenoid might be a good place to start. Common issue
Id try the Purge valve mate, mine was doing the same thing and it fixed it.
Pay the bucks and get transmission specialist to flush and service.
There is a process and its not straight forward.
The part was around $60 (cheap) what you do with it from there is your choice!
Lol. Just search it mate plenty of info about it on here im sure.
As Ricey said check purge valve solenoid it's a common issue and a cheap fix
Yeah mate hangers look good but it sounds like something hitting the floor.
My mechanic couldn't fault it on the hoist but I wonder with...
Its only done 70k
