Hi All
I'm after some help please. I have a T4, 1994, 2.5petrol. It's been running poorly, the idle has been lumpy and will stall when coming to a junction. I've had several mechanics look who all say it's fine, it isn't as it's running like a tractor. I've had the Ecu reprogrammed and was told by one mechanic, oh it will run ok after 15mins! Any ideas greatly appreciated as I'm running out of mechanics who will even look at it.

Esentially the idle is lumpy at all times, power can drop off when driving. This has happened to the extent that I've only been able to get 5mph.

This doing my head in so any ideas/help is appreciated.

If anyone knows a good mechanic near Swadlincote (1/2 hr south of Derby) it would be good to hear too.

Thanks
Simon

Hi SAM. Take a look at all the vacumn pipes and change if any look suspect cheapest way first and it could sort it out
Good luck

Hey Thanks,

Should've said we've already done vacuum pipes, thermostat, temp sensor, pulse sender in the distributer, distributor cap, rotor arm and had the ecu reprogrammed.

After that still lumpy idle, sudden lack of power and stalling!
