Bad idle, then stalls
Posted 18 January 2007 - 12:46 PM
it has been parked outside for the 3 weeks so its taken some rain etc, ive been having a look in my haynes and a possible cause looks like it may be moisture on the distributor. it was fine before i left and hasn't been driven so im thinking if rain got in there that might have happened.
the other thing that might have screwed up again is my stupid wolf 2D ecu, but the 'bay' lights indicating when each spark is firing seems to be in order (which wasn't the case last time because my ignition coil was screwed.)
i spose it could be any number of things but any other obvious things to check?

i think ive located where the crank angle sensor is. was kinda feeling round next to the ignition timing thing down where all the belts and that are . Looks like i'll have to pull out the radiator to get at it.
Just a question, the hose/line which comes verticaly up from there near the distributor, where is it supposed to connect to? because i followed the line up from the ignition timing/crank angle sensor bit and it isn't actually connected to anything at all, i couldn't see where it would connect either.
I havent disconnected it, and it doesn't look like it had just fallen off from anywhere.

But, i was feeling round and found the box thing which i thought was the crank angle sensor, so maybe it does have one. if i can figure out where that mystery cable connects to and plug it in, maybe it will all work. but that wouldn't make sense because it all worked fine when it wasn't plugged in to anything.
and i dont think i have an airflow meter.

so it seems to have worked whatever crap was stopping it out of its system and is idling pretty much fine now. sits at 500 revs (a little low?) and occasionaly jumps up to 650, so its not quite even but i dont think it ever was.
thanks for the help lads.
