Hyundai Grand Starex – Black Smoke, Rattling sound and Loss of Power

Have you ever encountered a tail pipe black smoke, Engine knock like a rattling ratchet followed by a sudden loss power?

I was driving from Calatagan via the Nasugbu, Tagaytay road at high speed when all of a sudden, a sound like a rattling noise of a ratchet, black smoke and sudden loss of power was encountered.
I immediately parked on the road side and checked what went wrong. I opened the hood, It looks everything was just fine and in normal condition. Temperature was 86 Degrees C ( HUD* Information ). Cooling water level was good, No any sign of leaks.

I tried to restart the engine, It started, but the black smoke and rattling sound still there! I was sure that something’s really wasn’t right!

Petron value card was reliable. They managed to arrange the towing service after valid verification of my Petron Value Card.

After approximately 30 minutes that I didn’t do anything on the Car 🚗, and while waiting for the towing service from Silang, Cavite, I started the Car one more try!

With luck and good fortune, The car started normally! As if there was nothing happened!

I manage to reached Twin Lakes at 1500 RPM as an observatory acts.

As soon as I arrived Twin Lakes, I called m back again the Petron hotline and canceled the incoming towage service. They confirmed without any additional information needed. They even called back and advised that if I need any additional help, They should be inform soonest to arrange another service!

Thanks to Petron customer service provider. The card has a real value honestly. #Petronvaluecard

We arrive at Marikina without any reoccurrence of black smoke, rattling sound and loss of power!

As a peace of mind, I still need to check my injectors o rings. It might suck or insufficient air that cause the loss of power at high speed. Insufficient air and fuel ratio equals insufficient combustion. Air in the fuel line causes knocks. At high speed, It make sense but further test should be very crucial.

CGPA

Important reminders:

Petron value card – You should always bring along with you whereever you go. It will save you the minimum allowed tow service of 3,000 pesos. Secondly, They need the value card number for verification purposes.

Petron Hotline: 02 4594735

*HUD – Head Up Display Can display RPM, Real time speed, Battery Voltage or Cooling water Temperature as shown on cluster.

Black Smoke, Rattling sound and loss of power is back to normal.

•Following the recent issue that I just encountered a few days ago. Here is the latest results of my Car injectors after we did some slight adjustment at awons corps auto supply.

We found out that there is loose socket connection on number 4 injector.When vibration occurs at high speed, It cause number 4 injector to stop due to intermittent disconnection. We discovered also a slight  loose nuts tightness on fuel high pressure lines allowing the system to suck air and mixed with the fuel. This causes fuel knocks like a rattling sounds.

Thankfully, The unit is back in normal operating condition even at 5000 RPM in park mode. Revolution is very smooth up to the red line.

Menhaden
A million of menhaden fish clogged Ship’s engine Water central cooler strainer.

July 15, 2018 – Houston Ship Channel Fairway.

We are a vessel with half of our cargo in transit. It happened during our south east bound transit at Galveston Houston Ships Channel from Kinder Morgan Terminal, Galena Park to Galveston outer anchorage when engineers noted a slight rise on main engine temperatures slightly higher than normal.

The seasonal presence of Menhaden fish along the channel pose a real danger to all ships transiting the Houston Ship Channel.

It affects mainly the Ship Main Engine Central cooling systems due to heavy clogs.

Upper suction sea chest clogged heavily

As you can see in the photos. This is the condition of upper sea chest suction strainer after our transit.

We carried out a thorough inspections on both strainers. We cleaned, de-clogged both strainers in order to be ready for the next transit northwest bound to Kinder Morgan Terminal.

All passing vessels in the area should exercise an extra caution during transit along the area of Galveston, Houston Ship Channel especially when engine status are ordered to full RPM.

Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao

What’s your opinion on Manny Pacquiao’s win?

At his late 30’s. Manny Pacquiao raised his both hands again! At 39th he marked his 39th Knockout wins on his career. After almost a decade of zero knock out win from his previous bouts, Here he is! My congratulations to Sen. Manny Pacquiao and the whole team Pacquiao for giving us again the glory to cheer for Manny ! Manny! Manny! What a pride. Its a pity that for some, no one seems to care or acknowledge that anymore. Time change over time.

I’m reading out some different post opinion from different people about Manny’s career as a boxer. But why? Aren’t they happy that at his age, Manny Pacquiao can still competes like the old Manny Pacquiao? His life at 40? it’s just the beginning for him, that his belief! I respect that. He is one of a kind brothers! The greatest boxer in the planet. I don’t care if you are a Boxer too or a CEO of a big company or the President of a boxing bodies! Every one have their own point of views! You got one, They’ve got too, everyone does!

The question is so simple? Do you really love what is happening to your career since you started living your life? If you do, That’s the real truth!

Well, for Manny Pacquiao, His hearts belongs to boxing, it’s his sports, He knows the risk too but why he is still fighting? It’s not all about money i guess? If you stop him what he is doing right now? He’ll be disappointed in his life. Just like us! Its what he want to his life that matters. Manny Pacquiao loves boxing, If he continue to do so while he still can, So be it. There’s no reason for him to stop unless his body and heart will tell him so? He is good at it. He succeeded on that sports. We liked hime once before, We’ll probably like him now once again..

To Senator Manny Pacquiao who just won the fight tonight, Congratulations! Just do it! You may win or lose to your next fight, That’s life! as long as you love what you’re doing? Keep fighting! don’t lose your faith, Because “life is the greatest fight of mankind, whatever we do”..

Are you a Sailor?

Have you ever tried to purchase any product online? Or putting up a business and later on closed it due to insufficient profit? Did you really wanted those businesses that you once established but it didn’t worked as planned? The reasons of these so many questions are: Did we focused? or managed it personally then got disappointed on slow development and didn’t got what we expected. If any of the reasons are correct then try to figure out if you can still do it while there’s still time!

The sailor’s online shop

I started my first online shop on a trial. There were no goal, No products to sell and no idea what’s an online business all about! What’s a niches, How a brand name started and become famous. It’s fun and time consuming at first. It only takes 3 days to realized that the potential is likely for me as a sailor. Why? I got my first sale on the 3rd day! It was a favor from a friend but indeed its still a sale! In fact, I don’t need to stay home to manage it. I can do it anywhere and at anytime.

What was the name of my first online shop?

The real truth about sailors around the World 🌎

The sailor’s journey around the world.

See the world around for free with higher green.

Live a better life than we can imagine.

Sailors life is a real travels. Sailing, Navigating on calm or stormy weather, Trans-Atlantic, Trans-Pacific or travel by sea voyages from one port to another!

Sailor’s job is a real hard! Whoever you are, Filipino, Indian, Chinese, Thailand, Greek, Bulgarian and more nationalities! There is only one truth, Being away from home for one whole contract is not a thing that to be taken lightly!

Its hard keeping that easy for every sailors mind around the world.

Some sailors of other nationalities other than Filipinos are really competitive in terms on contract completion!

You give us a 7 months contract or more? We will probably asked for another months!

Why? A lots of reasons!

Someone need to stay more on board in order to spend a Christmas vacation with their family, or needed to stay more because they’re building their dream houses. Some will attend their daughter’s 7th birthday and debut, Sons graduation day and more and lot more reasons. Those were reality and real truth.

Everyone of us have our reasons.

The real truth is, no one gets richer for a month or two months of contract extension! No one will also gets poorer for just a complete contract! In fact, we’re all going back again on board after a couple of months on vacation with family and friends.

It’s just a matter of mind set that if someone stay more on board they earn more! That is absolutely wrong!

Life on board any seagoing vessel is in fact very unusual! Living in a very limited number of community for a long period of time is something we should avoid. Or something we should be thinking about!

When will it change?

It should be now or never! Imagine when were all young at 20! We were all happy with our childhood friends and relatives. Until we got our first employment on board.

Now, If you’re 40,50 or even 60 plus years old and still sailing? It’s time to think back what have we done to our life? What was life on board for a long time and what will be our life after sea-life?

Are we really ready to tackle the life that we are not used to it?

Sometimes, it’s just a matter of pride if we thought that our mind and our heart can still compete with younger generation sailors. its just an imagination. It’s time to accept that our body can no longer react the way it was. The time is up and running out! It is time to spend the rest of our life and start to live a real life!

If we don’t stop at a age of 55 to 60 or younger, What will be the future awaits us? We spent our lives paying our monthly liabilities? Yes! Children’s tuition fees paid on time? Yes! paid our debts in a bank loans for our luxury cars and others needs? Yes!

How about our own life? Did you think what kind of life had you lived since you started a seafaring job?

Life span now a days is getting shorter whether we like it or not! When do we intend to live a life we really dreamt for? I don’t care if you’re a president of a big company or a clerk! if you really like what you’re doing? Then so be it! But if you think you’re not happy with it. Time is all you’ve got! There’s still time to change your lifestyle before its really too late! Time is too short and it’s really time to regroup whoever you are. Sailor’s life is hard but our life is harder after sea-life if we don’t act now. The only thing I can say, Stop as early as you can and you can still enjoy a real life. It’s hard but it’s real!

To summarize, not all sailors have the same fate. There are those who are fortunate to find a good job 👍 in the office, turn their back on high salaries temptations? I salute them. Those who established their own training centers and review centers? Those are real changes of their lives. Those who establish their own businesses being the own boss of their business and companies. Not to mention a few..

Nevertheless, Whatever you do as long as you love ❤️ what you’re doing, Go on and continue. It’s the life we choose, there’s no deviation, no turning back. There’s only one truth. There’s always an end! Continue reading The real truth about sailors around the World 🌎
