probably been done a few times this one - but anyway here goes…..
Engine is difficult to start, runs on 2 then 3 cylinders and finally 4 after a while. Once it has warmed through (lots of coaxing) it will just about idle (well kind of...:roll eyes
, the revs drop below idle speed and it seems to hunt around. You can be driving along on an almost closed throttle and it feels like it is dropping off a cylinder or two until you blip the throttle or give it some beans! There is the occasional cough and splutter when first trying to get it going and had one small backfire.
(ok, it has been stood for sometime, but it is not a first car :roll eyes
I take it for a decent run up the dual carriage way and here and there for 20 / 30 minutes, but when I get home it will sit on the drive way, or at a set of lights and it runs like a pig. So…..
where would you look first, second and third……
Intake air leak?
Some weird (damp) electrical connection or earth?
MAF playing up?
It's not old fuel as I went through a good tank and a half of 98Ron during early December.
Would be good just to get some general suggestions as to what most people look for first.
Answers on a postcard…….
