EUREAKA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok its done dead spot totally gone variousd idle gone car much happier oh yes yes yes
how was this done you say quinn
well noticed today drumroll mmmmmmmm throttle cable loose as feck tightend this and pedal car running sweet idle at 850 900 ish no dead spots
talked to local subaru guy who was one of the world rally team mechanics noble paterson
this was the first thing he told me to check
taking the car to him soon for a tune and check hope he can also remap
but as for now the lesson is def to check the basics before suspecting expensive parts

Re: EUREAKA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

yeah i know but the logic behind it seems sound and you cant aruge with results
its the bridge between the mechanical and the electrics the throttle sensor thinks the cable and spirngs are at a certain point this then informs the ecu to kick the turbo etc but the cable was loose therefore 200 revs behind were the ecu thinks it was
therefore knocking all out plus the idle control valve is droping to low i.e it thinks it is at 800 but actually 600ish the loose cable and pedal when you lift of the gas the pedal is rising to far up and allowing the springs to go completly right back to 0 hence the odd cutting out
this was the answer for me but i had ruled everything elese out ICV maf etc which i may add i wouldent know were to start without everyones help
cheers to the many
