Re: Shake/Nearly Stall when Accelerating

I have learned more about this car in the past month then I learned about anything in my four years at school haha. I appreciate the offer but I'm across at least one ocean haha. Maybe I should update my profile, but I am in Canada. I also took the car for a drive with TPS unplugged to see if that w...

Re: Shake/Nearly Stall when Accelerating

I hope this image attaches, but I think these are the error codes I am getting. I used the system diagnostic method as I still have the original head unit and gps. Looks like engine knock sensor and something else? I will double check this with the paper clip method, and check my coil packs later. I...

Re: Shake/Nearly Stall when Accelerating

Thanks Tosh.

I did take a look at the coil packs and they all seemed actually really new, or at least in real good condition. I'll check them again just to be sure.

Re: Shake/Nearly Stall when Accelerating

I haven't had a chance to put in the old plugs and check the difference. I reset the ECU and now it is running a bit better, more like how it used to run. It really is starting to feel like an issue with either fuel or air. Foot hard down will nearly stall the car, then you'll shift and foot hard do...

Re: Altezza Fault code diagnostics

So I have the original display and head unit. Too bad I can't read Japanese. Anyone else have luck? I'm basically just moving around the menu at random.

Re: Shake/Nearly Stall when Accelerating

Hey guys, So I replaced my plugs with NGK iridium's and I think I have ruined it haha. Can barely get to 2K rpm when the car is just started. Huge flat spot and the car will barely move, lots of shaking. Once it warms up a bit and the coolant temp goes up it seems to be ok, but until then it is near...

Another Canadian

Hey guys! I totally did not do the intro and I've already been posting so I figured I should sort that out here. I've had my Altezza since September of 2014. Bone stock, not a single mod on it, unless you count the wood shift knob haha. The car was a clean auction grade 4.5 straight from Japan. Slig...

Re: Shake/Nearly Stall when Accelerating

Yep fully standard! Haven't even taken the radio out, so I have to use CD's, which I didn't think existed any more. Lol

Re: Compatible Parts List

I've been on there for hours already! It is simply amazing to have the tool. Maybe we can just leave it at that.

Compatible Parts List

I'm not sure where to post this, but I was wondering if I made a list of compatible parts for the Altezza, if it could be posted somewhere? The Altezza is now available to import to Canada, and I for see a few canucks joining this site. If I can save them some of the research I have done by posting ...

Re: Shake/Nearly Stall when Accelerating

Yah it's pretty bad flat spot! The weird thing is that once the car warms up, it pretty much goes away. I don't really drive this car hard at all, so I'll have to check if I get the surge at 4.5K rpm. I like the idea of the maintenance. I bought this car from Japan in September and haven't done any ...
