Re: Ruff idle and stalling on cold start

maybe one of the sensors are stuffed and it could be running real rich.
Is it blowing any smoke.
your leads could be damaged.
rotor button a bit worn.
spark plugs could be dirty.
fuel filter could be blocked.
fuel pump might be on the way out.

Re: Ruff idle and stalling on cold start

Expect you have checked the plugs after it has been idling for a few minutes from cold.
Saw a post about checking for manifold air leaks using a WD40 spray. Wrecks the oxy sensor.

Re: Ruff idle and stalling on cold start

my engine machinist and i can only come to one conclusion that i am getting bad fuel because also sometimes whilst i am driving i get a stutter and i have found its only with certain fuels so sounds like i got a bit tooo mutch compression!
so just premium now and nothing else so far it is starting a shit load better!!!!!!
