Thanks for the reply. The GTA's are just phenominal machines. It was love at first sight when I saw it on the showroom floor a few years ago. I'm enjoying every second of mine!
What are the specs on yours - colour, interior finish, transmission, rims, mods?
Mine's a 2003 in Rosso Red, full black interior, 6 speed manual running on 17" Multispokes.
I cleaned the engine thoroughly a couple of nights ago. Just after that I started the car and warning lights flashed indicating a fault with the Motor Control Unit. From past experience (had a VW Polo and after every engine wash it would just die on me - found some moisture on the distributor to be the problem), I parked the car and left it for a day. I figured all moisture should evaporate from the engine bay by that time.
The next time I started it, I had no warning lights scaring me and I took it out for a drive. Now, when I reduce speed and gear down and then accellerate from 2nd, 3rd or 4th I can feel sort of a "dead spot" for a second and then power is delivered smoothly. Have you or anyone reading this experienced the same thing??? Any suggestions?
I cleaned the standard exhaust too with some soap&water (just shining them up). Could it be that my MAF (Mass Airflowmeter) is a bit out bonkers?
