Re: roughness in my eb need advice.

well i thought it was the torque converter too and so did my teacher/ mechanic with 40 years experience said it too but the transmission people said it isnt and its the engine mounts which do need replace but i dont think its the cause. so any info welcomed!

Re: roughness in my eb need advice.

Im my EBII it was the head TWICE but then mine is a manual too and it had a rough idle at start at first and after about 2-3 kms it would go away...Check and see if you are losing any coolant and on the inside of your oil cap if there is a milky substance.
I really hope it isn't as these can be exensive to replace $1500 first time (never went back to that mecanic ever again) and the second time I wasn't able to get a head so I ended up getting a 2nd hand XR6 engine from a EF

Also checked your air filter isn't clogged and your fuel filter has been replaced in the last 2 years.

is it at idle and when reved above 900 or so it goes away ?
my el does it , no idea but I suspect it may be just one of those things as the block is from an ef xr6 with lotsa work done
t I know my harmonic balances is crook and needs replacement , it's spun a little , take a look at yours .
