Can anyone help?
Hello all. As some of you know, I've been in the process of doing some repairs to my EA after an unfortunate accident a couple of weeks ago.
Anyway, car is straight now, I had to replace the water pump and p/s pump, and I figured I may as well do the mpfi conversion at the same time.
Got everything installed and hooked up last week, but there is a problem.
Car would crank, but wouldn't fire. Had one of the guys at work fiddle around with it, we figured out the timing was screwed (I replaced the dizzy) so we kinda fixed that up, now car starts.
BUT, it doesn't run too well at all. Idle is lumpy as all get up, occasionally when I open the throttle she just stalls, sometimes she won't even start.
But, if I start it with the throttle open, she'll quite happily sit at 1500-2000 rpm with no trouble.
Now, I suspect my timing is still dodgy, but I don't have the tools or know-how to fix it, and unfortunately nobody at work is able to help me.
So, my car is stranded at work till I can get it fixed. The point of this long winded post, is anybody free on Saturday to give me a hand trying to fix it?
I would appreciate any assistance at all, or even just the use of a timing light to try to figure it out. Reply to this thread or PM me if you are able to help.
