In Topic: Random loss of fower on 94 GT

Sudden on/off sounds like electrical to me. Clean all the plugs in the engine bay and refresh all the ground points (unbolt, clean).

Another possibility, as you mention light throttle, is that the ECU thinks you're coasting (zero throttle) and has applied fuel cut. That would indeed be TPS. so maybe start by making sure those plugs are all good (including ECU end), and check the TPS voltage is in spec and ok at light throttle.

Balls! I didn’t know the public could do that.

I bet that person that called you out has zero responsibility if you’re in the clear.

I assume you need to pay for and attend a testing session - then a fine if you don’t pass?

fortunately - no, its just a warning at this point. Some crap about if another complaint is made, then we'll pull you in, yada yada.

 

All I can think of is someone got pissed at me in traffic, maybe I cut them off or something?  But I'm pretty laid back during the commute... no reason to get worked up about all the usual bullshit and blockages that goes on.

 

.. and its hardly as if the car screams hoon. It's a bog-standard looking outback with a stock-subtle  B4 hood scoop and a bit of a shiny exhaust tucked well under the bumper.  No big fart cannon hanging out like a whores drawers.

 

 

from your mods "MRT stainless 3" turbo back w/ divorced wastegate dumps." compared to modern cars that be loud. Especially early morning or night

 

 

yes - its got a bit of a burble.. but in near-peak traffic, who is going to be annoyed by it?

 

Must just be someone without a life.

Lifted Turbo Foz would do that job well - just sayin'


In Topic: B4 Fuel Pump issues.......Help me

27 March 2019 - 09:38 AM

Fuel pump controller is located behind the passenger side panel in the boot, just in front of the jack. It runs the pump at 1/3, 2/3 or 100% depending on engine load.

 

I think many people bypass it altogether and just run the pump at 100%.

 

As you note, could be the controller or relay.

if you have a week or so to wait - one source is partsouq. 

 

I just bought rocker cover gaskets, all the bits for a timing belt change, and a some other bits and bobs.

 

The rocker cover gaskets (+ spark o-rings + bolt washer) came to USD$40 plus shipping
