My Kjet car has been hard to start for years....
Fires easily when cold (I assume the cold start injector helps), I can leave mine for an hour and it fires, 2-4 hours and things get iffy..
One thing I have noticed is that during the much colder winter months here in TX, I have significantly...
Hoping to get some insight into how the tacho works on a 1982 240T.
Mine has suddenly started acting erratically. Bounces up and down, then reading zero rpm driving at speed on the freeway.
I believe the tacho gets the power and ground from the cluster? And is connected to the negative...
I bought the double cup holder from eBay. Sanded it down and sprayed it with some sema camel paint to match my interior. Looks good, and they work pretty well. Downsides are they can get in the way of legs, and they are a tad big for some cups...
Can someone explain what instigates up and down shifts within the AW71?
Fairly certain my kick-down cable needs adjustment, but I want to understand how the mechanism works.
My 244 B21FT has decided to not want to not want to down change into 1st gear when it comes to a stop. Anything...
Final update to close this off. Issues now seem to be resolved.
Ignition distributor (suspected vacuum)
CBV (replaced with a nice billet forge)
vacuum valve for fuel enrichment (this was causing bigger issues than I thought)
numerous vacuum lines replaced
throttle body gasket
Revisiting this post as I believe I have found the root cause of the issue.
After many changes the car was running reasonably well, not perfect but well (with o2 plugged back in).
Today, after more tinkering - not the case. Boost issues again.
I found the source of the hissing sound, its the...
These guys used to rebuild. But its not cheap.
I know you can buy kits to DIY - I personally wouldn't even attempt it. If mine ever stops working I would get the fuel distributor and the WUR rebuilt..
Hey there! Quick question regarding the fuel distributor upgrade...
You are looking for more fuel from your Kjet system I assume?
I guess it depends on power goals but I have always felt that the restrictions were more with spark and timing than fuel when it came to Kjet.
I run a standard...
I have purchased a replacement. Progress has been made; replacing vac lines and replacement o2 sensor has meant the car now runs well under boost.
Now, I am trying to figure out why the idle is erratic….
15G and it is water and oil cooled.
CBV is different from a wastegate?
Still not sure that would explain why it runs OK with the o2 sensor unplugged? Or air entering system that shouldnt be screwing up reading, which screws up what the computer is trying to do?
Don’t disagree with any of that.
The frequency valve is operating.
However, surely this is an electronic fault? Car idles and boosts fine (not perfect) with the o2 unplugged. As soon as this is connected it all falls apart. The o2 sensor is sending a reading to the ECM which then adjusts fuel...
