Re: hello everyone

Which model do you own and what are the problems your having with it ?

My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.

My next Ford.....

Re: hello everyone

I'm going to move this post over to the E Series Falcons. That way you'll get all the help you need.

Re: hello everyone

hi, what exactly is wrong with it?

Is it going through a lot of fuel?
Is it going through a lot of coolant or oil?
Is it running really roughly? (and I mean running like crap, not "roughly" due to having a big cam in it!)
Is it a driveline issue? (gearbox or tailshaft vibrating, diff whining, etc etc)

Perhaps contacting Sylox about this might help? Here is his member link (it has his email address):

http://www.fordforums.com/members/15328.html

EA-XR6's member link:
http://www.fordforums.com/members/6049.html

I hope it gets sorted soon. www.eseries.com.au might help out too? There's an E-Series chatroom too on irc

Re: hello everyone

it's the first time I've ever heard of a chip A) coming loose and B) this causing it to "lose its program".

It's funny, the amount of things that can go wrong with a car eh!

It is a small world, you're the 2nd person in a week on the forums who've said they know people from boolarra! Chances are I don't know your relatives though, because although I've been in the town all my life, I hardly know anyone, because I always got on much better with people in the surrounding towns.

Cheers,

Re: hello everyone

i reset the computer in it and taped the chip in,im only getting 150klms in 2nd gear at 5500 the chip allows it 7500 i think,it seems a bit better but is still choking at low speeds,and almost stalls at idle,i have it idilling around 1000 i think thats the idle setting for an ea.
