1987 ford laser ghia, 1.6L EFI engine, 230,000 km
recently my car was not running at all, I found the fault to be the fuel pump, which I replaced, and now it starts and idles.
as soon as I put the throttle in, the rev's go down, and when I let it out it jumps up a thousand or so then back to normal, running pretty badly (spluttering, backfiring etc).
the exhaust has a little white/grey smoke coming out (not alot) and I saw a tiny plume of smoke coming from what looked like the exhaust manifold.
can you help me?
-edit- if you partially clamp the fuel return hose the engine runs alot smoother, could this be something to do with the fuel pressure?
have the same problem?
