New car... teething problems

Postby pompeyspark » Thu May 16, 2013 11:09 pm

when i pull to a stop with say the lights on or something drawing a current of the battery the car idles very low about 450rpm low enough to make the car shake and vibrate....... ANY IDEAS??

when below 4500 rpm i struggle to get any form of pull out of the car.... feels like the power is there and it wants to but just just actually give the power?? :-/ .... ANY IDEAS

As said in your post in newbie section have a look at cleaning mad sensor and throttle body.

Being honest I feel the engine doesn't have much guts under 4500rpm

The idle sensor should not be touched there electronically controlled by ecu

I have booked the car into garage (MitsiArt Portsmouth) to give the car a once over and do some work

Change all belts
Service - plugs, filter, leads, oil etc
New Clutch
clean throttle body and MAF sensor.


Anyone got any recommendation of bits

Clutch??
what size mm plugs?


what other mods work well with the car? the rear box has already been changed but looking at putting through exhaust system, and KN panel filter?


ANY OTHER IDEAS OR TIPS
