Hi everyone, yet again i have more problems. When I start my car first thing it fires up as it should but when pull away it looses all will to live. it doesnt cut out i have to dip the clutch and rev it a bit then after that it will pull away gradually. Once i have got it going it is o.k.
The only way i can explain it is pulling away without a throttle. the other issue is a type of tapping noise, i think it is coming from the left hand side at the top of the engine. sounds like a noisy tappet but i thought they were hydrolic.

So far i have had the crankshaft sensor, air flow sensor and thermostat replaced. I have replaced the plugs and replaced the coil pack with one from a 2001 2.0L ts.

Thanks to anyone who can give me advice on these very frustrating problems.

the parts you replaced where they becaus of diagnostic readings that they were replaced or 'wild-fire' trouble shooting

if the latter i'd suggest getting a diagnostic done to prevent you wasting money on items not needing replacing.

you could have Lambda issues or CAT issue

what year is your car?

The parts were replaced due to other issues which are now corrected for now. it is a 99 on a T
