Guys,

Wanted a bit of advice.

My car is currently awaiting a new ECU after a fault with the original one.

It was overfuelling on start up from cold. And running very very rich.

What worries me, is when it did start up from cold, there would be a bang. It sounded to me like excess fuel exploding in one of the cylinders.

Any ideas if this would of damaged the engine anyone?

She runs fine and sounds fine, but i'm wondering if these bangs could of done any long lasting damage?

I'm a worrier.

Cheers all.:thumbs:

Probably wouldn't hurt the engine but it's more likley burning in the exhaust which may well get damaged plus CAT's don't like lots of petrol in them!

The problem with the early 2.0 JTS engines was the inlet valves still being slightly open when the spark went off. So the bang could have been fuel exploding in the inlet manifold.. Not good!

his is a 3.2 v6 not the jts engine.

so I would think that there was nothing to worry about really.
