Idle Question

Hi Guys,

my lovely EF seems to be doing a few wierd things in terms of idle and smooth running,

Wheb im driving, i.e 1000Rpm upwards the car is fine runs like a drea, but when im sitting at the lights the car is idle'ing at the norm 700-800 but i can hear that the idle is not normal, its just a little bit rough, certinly not going to die, but it sounds like its not running smooth ?


Any ideas, sorry for being very vauge its friday morning

Re: Idle Question

Hey,

My EBII had a similar problem. I replaced many things and it turned out to be my distributor cap. I have no rod of carbon connecting the coil to the rotor button, so the car was running on pure sparks. I replaced the rotor button and dizzy cap (high levels of corrossion) and also spark plug leads and spark plugs. It fixed the problem and the car felt so much better!
Hope that helps...

Exclamation Re: Idle Question

Hi XR6000

Doesnt really help, because I have an EF, which does not have a Dizzy, The EF has a coil pack instead, could this be the cause ?

Its slowly getting worse......

Im thinking maybe

a) Injectors
b) Coil Pack
c) Small leak in inlet manifold gasket

Please Help!!!!

I really dont want to take it to ford

Re: Idle Question

Could one of the listed.

Use a spray bottle to find if it is a vacuum leak.
Coil pack would cause miss juring the entire rev range.
Injectors same as coil pack.

Do you have terrible fuel efficiancy?

Have you looked at the plug's to see how it's running?

Re: Idle Question

On my old EA i had a similar problem and replced the distributor cap, rotor buttion, plugs, leads, fuel pump, timing chain and tensioner, etc.

It ended up being the camshaft. The hardened surface on the lobes had actually been worn through to the softer metal underneath. That fixed it.

The next time it did the same thing it ended up being leaking welch plugs so i just got rid of it.
