Re: Trc and engine light on

If anyone cares I managed to solve the problem tonight with a absolute hero of a friend.it turned out that the throttle was engaging half way down due to it being a fly by cable so the first half of the movement in the throttle cable is electronic driven by a motor in the throttle body. And the engi...

Trc and engine light on

It is literally one thing after another with my car and it's really starting to piss me off. So I think I've sorted my idle hunting buy playing with the idle control valve so now it doesnt get to the point of cutting out but still idles very high (at around 1800) but now I'm getting the TRC light fl...

Re: Erratic idle

That was pretty much what I got from researching about it, but some people have said that if it's dirty then it can mess with the idle.
But that's the only thing on the engine I've touched recently so I'm hoping that replacing it will help solve the problem :)

Re: Erratic idle

By bypassing it I mean that where there's usually a coolant hose going to the throttle body from the engine block, I've taken it off the throttlebody thermostat and just connected it to the return line on the block so it completely misses out the throttlebody thermostat altogether. I have got a new ...

Erratic idle

So my tezza was running perfectly fine a little while ago, and then it all went downhill. When it's cold it seems to run okay but when it's up to temperature the idle is all over the place, even ti the point where it will drop down so low and stall. (which has happened multiple times) The only thing...

Solid flywheel

So i was right by thinking it was my flywheel that's s@3! it's self, so either does anyone know where I can get a solid flywheel that doesnt cost the earth and I have to wait a year for it to get here, or does anyone have one sitting around that they don't want/need. I need it as soon as really as i...

Re: Irish newbie living in London

That's what I was using for a while but I'd just rather have the speedo be in mph to be honest, I don't like have my phone stuck to the screen :p

Re: Registering your Altezza in the UK

I don't know about the registering the car part but I wouldn't of thought you'd have to change the speedo as when there imported from Japan the stay in kph. Maybe ask on driftworks, the guys on there usually have most if not all the answers you'll need on importing cars from anywhere :)

Re: Knocking noise

No not when it's just idling It's when it's in gear driving and off the accelerator it makes the sort of rattly grindy noise at around 2100rpm. But I noticed today after an hour drive to work, with the car just idling and out of gear you can hear something rattling around from the gearbox/flywheel a...

Re: Lightweight flywheel

I couldn't tell you to be honest, it's a great forum for information that's already here, but anything either I've asked or seen others ask doesn't seem to even get answered which is a shame and makes finding answers to things alot more difficult

Re: Lightweight flywheel

If I'm honest I wouldn't hold out much hope of anything from here, from what I've seen over the last few month f*** all people even use this forum anymore
