Help 156 selespeed problems!

Hi everyone!

Have a serious problem with 156 selespeed which is driving my inde mechanic and me *****NUTS!

Overcooked it and fitted new head, fine. Fires up great until slightly warm (5/10 mins).
Revs then 'hunt' up & down so cannot be driven.
Gave up & went to dealer for diagnostic check - shows nothing.
Have tried air intake/smoke test all OK.

PLEASE PLEASE if you know anything, know anyone, or have experience this - get back to me soonest. Dealer recommends trial and error replace 'everything' until probem solved!

Re: 156 selespeed problems!

sounds as if the ECU is re-learning, this may take considerable time..

Yeah, could be the ECU, might save time to do an ECU reset. All you need to do is disconnect the battery for 30 minutes.
