Newbi

Postby townie » Wed Aug 07, 2013 8:41 am

Hi All I just joined the tezza world , would like to say hello to everyone and hopefully pick a few brains on
the trouble i am haveing with my 99 altezza 3sge rs200 beams auto /triptronic car has low end revs from taking off point. and when i push the pedal she has a kinda pinging noise almost metal sound but goes away when it picks up speed . I have cleaned throttle body ,changed plugs ki 20 irridium , oil 5w 30 fully syn, airfilter, oilfilter, goes for test on 17 th august also changing the timming belt as i just got the car 2 weeks ago last owner had no info couldn't insure so never nct,d car imported to ireland 2009 never had nct just found out through a friend who works there but it runs fine i am thinking problem could be cat and oxygen sensors :( anybody have this loss of low end power or bad petrol maybe should be putting higher octaine 98/99 e5 anybody have any thoughts would be really appreciated
thanks for letting me vent . I look forward to being here with all you tezza heads

Welcome! I think the best would be to connect car to the computer and diagnose it
D700 / RS200

Welcome could be the torque convertor or possibly gear box by the sounds of that, especially if the gearbox has been mistreated, although I think most tezza's tend to have a metallic sound

figured maybe dirty maf sensor or o2 sensor or cat, pinging metallic noise down to poor fuel like 95 ron should be 98/99 e5 ohwell proccess of elimination won't give up she's worth saving for sure cheers mike for the brain food
