Note: (Right hand drive vehicle)
Problem preceded by an apparent slight misfire when idling.
Then later, a long hesitation in stuttering revs when pulling away at traffic light.
Then soon after, unable to re-start having stopped to refuel.
Changed fuel filter. Which was way overdue anyway.
Managed to restart with difficulty. Each time it failed there was a lot of smoke from (I think) the MAF. Then when it did start it seemed only to fire as I stopped turning engine over. Struggled in low revs for say 10 seconds, then picked up OK.
Restarted OK with no accelerator if left a few minutes, but went back to the difficult mode if left for half an hour.
Took for a run locally and it ran fine until I stopped to to turn across traffic, then it hesitated and almost stalled again. Pushed into 1st gear (crawler) as I was approaching a steep rise and just managed to keep it running till it revved up normally again after 5 or so seconds.
Plugs OK, Ignition distributor head quite new. Had previously re-soldered OVP relay contacts at motherboard because ABS light was on. This stopped the light OK. Replaced EHA valve with a second-hand one.
have the same problem?
