Sad Sack Ute
A while ago I asked your opinions for my 86 XF ute: bad economy, lack of grunt. And I'm going to ask again for suggestions. Found one problem was the rear disc brakes were gripping all the time, so that accounted for some lack of grunt, various horrible noises and 50km worth of petrol. However, I still have lack of grunt, and until warm, a coughing, spluttering engine on accelleration.
I had this problem with the old engine and trannie, and I thought that by putting in a new engine, and new trannie, it would alleviate the prob. No luck. Have tried various MAPS and ECG's, but still no luck. Plugs and leads have been changed, carby done, electrics checked, new fuel pump, fuel filter, etc etc. $6000,000 later .........
Can anyone think of a problem this car may have, which may not be due to engine or trannie, since both are new, and the same problems existed with the old engine and trannie?
I really, really, really, look forward to your suggestions!
