I think you would be ok with the impeller without the notch ,and definitely the exhaust leak could trigger a lean error code but it would have to be at the head to manifold seal before the water mixes with the exhaust or before the O2 sensor (and unlikely that it would suck in air more likely to blow out exhaust gas)

Hi everyone.
Hope you are all doing OK.

It's winter down-under but cold and sunny is pretty nice here in Auckland New Zealand.

I have a question about installing a fire port for the fire extinguisher in my engine cover. I have the Tahoe Utility and have an upholstered plywood glassed engine cover / engine box.

Does anyone know if there is a preferred location for the port- I was thinking of the side of the engine cover.
Hopefully I'll never have to use it.

BTW - Hard to believe that a year ago we were planning our USA trip and the G10 event - time has flown by.

All the best.

Dave.

I would think where ever you have the most room to stand away and still reach the port.

Doing a winter anti-freeze / coolant change and changed the anode.

Some corrosion and pitting.
