156 JTS hesitation under load
Hi guys and gals,
my 156 is at it again. After a couple of months trouble free (previously had to change the throttle pedal) its hesitating and stuttering under acceleration in all gears. It started only in 4th and 5th, but has worked it's way down through them all now.
If I back off the throttle and accelerate a little less enthusiastically it goes away, if i don't, i get MCSF and a lot of beeping for 10-30 seconds, and then it goes into limp mode, which is drivable, but very slow.
I'm thinking fuel starvation? I've got a filter for it, and before anyone says otherwise, the 2.0JTS does have a fuel filter and I know where it is and how to change it. Failing that, what's the next most likely cause?
