Went to help an AO'er with a starting issue, who lived 160 miles each way from my home. Lovely day for driving though
When i got there he was/is the proud owner of a 2.5 V6 Q-system .... i was amazed to see one in Ireland.
Very nice, crisp & smooth gear change [ on full throttle ] when using the 'gear-stick', smoother change than either of the 2 Selepseeds i've driven.
Oh yeah, turned out his car's immobilser wasn't de-activating on occasion.
So i re-seated the power connector, removed the antenna, checked it for damage & checked its resistance & re-fitted
Odd thing with his car, it idles at approx 700 rpms but it fluctuate +/- 50 rpms & is quite 'lumpy' at idle.
Any suggestions as to a cure?
I suggested getting a compression test performed & to replace the plugs at the same time.
