Runs poorly after accelerator pedal more than halfway....
Well, the latest installment in the catalogue of issues on my 2 litre Turbo GTV is as follows;
The car is in the garage (again) for repair, as I picked it up yesterday after the engine mount was fixed, ony for it to run poorly when pushing the accelerator pedal more than half way. The car would 'stutter' and not accelerate (and an occasional cloud of brown smoke from the exhaust if I keep the pedal down), but if the pedal was pushed up to half way, all was fine.......
Now this only occurs when the car is in gear. If it is idling, and you put the pedal al the way down, it revs freely to the limit (I made sure I did this when the engine was warm!).
Any clues? This is a 2 litre Turbo, not the 3 litre version.
