Hesitancy following thermostat change?
After months of running cold I finally got round to sorting the stat on the V6 yesterday. As a bit of a spanner novice I should thank Gweg for his how to guide on this (although mine being a 2000 model meant it was a battery out job, as access was a bit of an issue).
Anyway, I took it for a run afterwards and it warmed up to (an indicated!) 90 degrees and it sat there, which is great and the heater actually blew hot air! Nice. BUT, I did notice a slight hesitancy when accelerating. At first I thought I was imagining it, but having gone for a second run today I'm pretty sure it's there. It just doesnt seem as responsive, as if on half throttle it's holding back a bit, and it definately wasn't doing this before.
I did have to take all of the intake ducting out to get to thet 'stat, so maybe I haven't put it back together correctly?
Or is this symptomatic of anything else? MAF maybe?
Any advice appreciated!
