More EF Falcon problems

My EF Falcon 6cyl sends a lot of vibration through the car while ideling in gear (auto). If i put it in neutral the vibration pretty much stops. When its cold and ideling faster the problem isn't as bad. Also if i give it some throttle while in gear to bring the revs up it stops vibrating. Any idea what the problem could be??? The only thing i can think of is it's ideling to slow. How fast should it idle in park and in gear? How do i increase the idel speed if this is the problem? Thanks for the help the other day too re the noisy fan.

Re: More EF Falcon problems

I've got a similar problem with my ED, but it's only VERY minor. Maybe the ISC is dirty? :s6: (My newly found knowledge!)

Re: More EF Falcon problems

What RPM does it idle at? Is it vibration like the engine is about to stall?

Re: More EF Falcon problems

dirty/nearly shagged sparkplugs? injectors maybe? You wouldn't wanna increase the idle rpm to cover another problem. (heck we used to do that with our paddock bombs, and they're mostly all dead now) Then again i'm rarely ever right with these things and I should probably just let psycho chicken handle it lol!

Good luck,
Jared

It is 99% nothing more than your engine mounts are rooted.. It is not the idle just go and fit some new engine mounts and the problem is solved :)

Re: More EF Falcon problems

the oil dampner inside starts to fail causing a bad vibration at low revs (most pronounced at idle with a load ie: in gear) Due to them being a 'sealed unit' you can't tell if they are r**ted when you look at them, but you can sure feel a dud one

Re: More EF Falcon problems

How hard are engine mounts to replace? What do you need? Are the expensive?

Re: More EF Falcon problems

hmmm, sunny has the same problem with the EA he just bought. We turned the idle up but I wouldn't recommend it. It just means the idle shoots up over 1000rpm when in 'N' or 'P'. Had to turn it back down.

tibbo, we did the foot on the brake and floor it test to see if the engine twists much, and it didn't move much at all. Would it be the same problem in the EA u reckon?

Re: More EF Falcon problems

not hard to replace, about 3 bolts on each one (for EA-ED), just a little fiddly getting to them :o
