Re: Running bad on low throttle
That used to happen to me, especially in cold weather. Based on advice from this forum, I did two things:
- Checked the exhaust line - had to patch a forming hole in the rear silencer; better right away,
- Added some injectors cleaner; did seem to make a bit of a difference and after 2-3 days, things were back to normal.
Additionally and for something totally unrelated, I later fixed the air induction box, which sits below the air filter. The thing is made of two halves which can tend to separate a bit after a while. I added two plastic collars and two screws to make the whole much tighter. Result: improved throttle reaction time.
Only thing, you can only access that box by removing the front bumper, but if you ever get your 155 on the jack, take a quick look at it. It's on the right side, behind the bumper, in front of the wheel arch.
