Hi. The pipe going from the lube bottle to the pipe between the vaporiser and throttle body on my 2.5 Subaru non turbo split and popped off the t piece about 3 weeks ago. Noticed a noise like escaping air that identified it. I cut the split pipe piece off and refitted. I don't seem to have used any valve lube since. I have just removed the pipe from the t piece and it no longer sucks air. Any ideas on what's wrong? Cheers.

Seems a simple plumbing issues - case of a blockage or another leak..

Bare in mind that if the pipe still contains fluid, you might not hear or feel much sucking of the pipe until the fluid in the pipe has all been sucked into the manifold.

When blockages / leaks are sorted, Flashlube might just want adjustment to start dripping again.

Thanks Simon. Turned it up to max now, and I've got a 350 mile trip back home tomorrow so hopefully should see level drop a bit in bottle

Easy to tell before-hand... Is the fluid dripping (or running) through the sight glass? It won't if there is no vacuum though.

The glass is filling but the fluid didn't seem to be getting any further. Pipe to t piece is definitely clear now so will check bottle on way home. Thanks for taking the time to help Simon, cheers.

Just to update, problem was a kinked pipe at the throttle body, where it was tucked under air intake thingy. All working fine now.
