FIESTA RS1800 RUNNING BADLY!! PLEASE HELP

5 posts in this topic

Hello i have an rs1800 and it has an air leak (unplugged mass flow and it runs) when mass flow is plugged in it bounces from 200rpm ish to 1500rpm and usually cuts out a lot and is VERY juddery when revving.

i have checked the mass flow, the intake L shaped bit of piping on top of the rocker cover, i have removed and refitted throttle body with a bit of added grease on the gasket, pushed the vacuum pipe for the brake servo in where it connects to the manifold, blocked off both the exhaust gas recirculation and the supply to what i think is the carbon filter on the front O/S just behind the side of the bumper, unplugged the throttle position sensor erm and unplugged the air pressure sensor in the back of the manifold...

AND STILL NO CHANGE!!!!

does anyone know what it could be?

thanks!

andy
