Hello Ladies and Gentlemen.
Long time reader first time posted, firstly thanks to those who have provided invaluable time and effort for the benefit of others.
I've had a bit of a search and having trouble finding my way around, so I guess I'll just have a crack at asking.
I have been having some issues with the old girl, just ticked over 55k, only thing replaced so far is the idler tension pulley. It happens randomly, but sometimes it tries to start and the starter power is cut, and it will ignite but at 100-200 rpm 1 or 2 seconds before cutting out.
On the second attempt, it takes longer than usual to fire like its starved of fuel but it eventually gets going. Sometimes the Gear selector flashes and enters into limp mode, turning it off and on again fixes it but today it did it twice.
It seems to idle in go mode at about 500rpm, and if you hit the accelerator too fast from standing start it will make a piston slap noise, worse with the a/c compressor running.
MY gut tells me its an Air intake issue maybe a leak but I would like an opinion from those who have had similar experiences.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. - Adam.
