Re: 156 stalling under slow speeds
So I check the cabling of the Lambda sensor and its all clean and ok.
The problem is STILL there weirdly enough, making me think either
A: The sensor is faulty
B: There is another problem that is interfering with lambda sensor
What's worse though, is that while I was coming back from my test drive, I noticed along the bypass doing, nearly 100mph, is that the all of sudden; the revs completely dropped (at least on the dial to 0) and my throttle was completely unresponsive. I coasted on, and just as I thought to change down to 4th, the engine became responsive again.
The lights, power steering and everything were still working, but this is a whole new problem that could have very dangerous consequences if I'm driving around country roads (all the time)
I'm going to try running it with the MAF disconnected now.
But as I said before, I have no idea how old the spark plugs are, does anyone think that could be a possible failing point in light of the symptoms I described.
I'm not exactly flush with catch, in fact more so the opposite. But I haven't got the money to go blowing on 8 new sparky's at around £80 unnecessarily.
What about a failing battery? I noticed some weirdness when reconnecting that after I left my stereo plugged in last week draining the battery. After charging over night, I connected it up and tried starting it, and it was DEAD. Wiggled around the positive terminal, and it started ok, but its not like the terminal connection was off, it should of made decent contact, and its not THAT sensitive anyways as it has a large amount of contact area when on? That battery seems fine too on a multimeter :s
I hope I have given somebody out there enough information, please let me know otherwise. Thanks
