Recently had a belt service inc variator etc, since belt service there has been a loss of performance, especially
after 3000rpm, car felt bogged down and engine boomy on acceleration, specialist had car back and checked
timing and new parts etc, could not find problem (tried diagnostic, no recorded fault codes).
Well i was slightly sceptical about this Ecu reset but nothing to lose so gave it a try.
Well to my suprise the car is as lively as before and pulls away effortlessly and now get a real boost at 3000rpm, i couldn't
believe my luck, i was beginning to think maybe the powerloss was my imagination, well its a different animal now.
Worked for me, car is much more responsive and no boomy engine noise....
Update jan 2011; car seems to have returned to being a bit sluggish under 3500rpm, had a silenced de-cat fitted and it has
made the car slightly more perky and revs more freely also nice rasp when accelarating, but not 100% sure ECU reset works
long term, had timing check and is ok, so just reset the Ecu again and doesn't seem much different this time..
Looking at a new Maf i think...although it idles smoothly but lacks power below 3500rpm...
