Thanks Nenagh for your response, unfortunately l found out it was a dirty injector..car runs fine now...

But to be honest im NOW so dissapointed with this Site, gettin only one response a week since l posted this which l thought, and still think is not a rocket science problem. Truely speaking, l verily miss the good old days when we had guys like Mike_01, Noel, Damok, RS Tom-Hundred, Jarocki only to mention a few, when this site was still very useful that l could barely spend a day without gettin online to see what was happening. Things have changed, one gets more than 20 views and a single or no reply for a problem, this is absolutely not the REAL TEZZWORLD I knw...I am SO dissapointed, we have lost the lustre of the site, lets get back to the old ways where helping each other was a norm, not a rarity like this......

Hello.

Yes i have been very quiet on the site as of late. Having owned the car for 8 years and counting it seems very hard to own an altezza these days. Insurance costs for cars over 15 years and a japanese inport is just making owning the car an effort. 8 years ago was a different story altogether. Glad you got the car sorted anyway.

Thank you Jarocki, l understand your situation.

To other guys who still own their tezzas, lets keep up the brotherly spirit of helping each other.

I know what your saying I try to chime in where I can but my knowledge of altezzas is abit limited. But I agree it's really annoying when your post a problem and don't get a response for weeks :/

I'm still here but unfortunately Ive been busy lately and not checked the forum for a while. I try to get on when I can though.

This was always gonna eb a tricky one to diagnose as it could be one of many things either power, fuel, spark or air related! Guessing you got all the basics checked and it turned out to be fuel.

Did you get a new injector or could it be cleaned/saved to solve the issue in the end?
