Just recently began driving an EA 5 spd..... and here's a problem which SOUNDS like a fuel delivery problem, but me not being an injected engine specialist (always had carbied cars) I could be way off.
Sometimes, it will accelerate normally, not bad! Occassionally I get this sluggish feel, a bumpy "pull-pull" type as if it isn't getting enough fuel or is getting it uneven. Kind of stunts the acceleration etc.... is this an injection problem and is it common (and hence, easy to fix)?
I'll do the feul pressure test.... let me explain a little more - most of the time it pulls fine, sometimes it starts pulling then gets all sluggish in spurts, kinda rough, most often when I level out the revs.
thanks for the advice, I'll do pressure test, but has anyone had similar probs? H
I have an EB and when i first got it it was only running on petrol (mine is pet/lpg). And even on petrol was running rough. Got the injectors fixed for $150 and ever since then she has been running beautifully
That's some good info to get me going.... fuel filter is near new.
And yeah, under load it sometimes hesitates (3.9 5 spd also). also, when I back off it tends to shudder at times and gets very rough.... so sounds similar to some other probs here.... I'll start with some of the checks, fixes etc mentioned here, and pay for what I can't do I guess.
Anyone recommend any injector places or will standard mechanics have enough of a clue? (score one point carbies, just get in there and pry around, wish it were so easy!)
