herd it before , poor idle , engine management light on :panic:

well this one isnt a idle control valve lol

it all started on a rainy day , the dreaded engine
management light came on and it went into limp mode.

so i pulled over and could hear the coil pack shorting.

i was still down my street so parked it back up and let her dry out.

started her up next day and she had a lumpy idol and kept cutting out. so i cleaned all the connections with wd40 then fitted a new coil pack.. job done i fort ...

it made no difference ,, then it stopped working all together. i got somone to look into the matter. he told me the ecu was knackard.

so i tuck it out to send it for testing. un plugged it / removed it from the car. ooooo noooo water was dripping out .. so i opened it up,,, and its had quite abit of water in the case. :bash:

sooo i deiced that my ECU would be brown bread and ordered a re con,,

next day delivery, next day a box came to the door ,, whooop whoooop

plugged it in ,, and guess what it started first time,,

but thats not end of the story , it was miss fring so i fitted a new crank sensor ,,, that fixed that problem ,,, but,,,, now she is running very rich , so i changed the fuel pump no change, left battery off over night, pressed re set , checked all fuses , cleaned all the sensors , cleaned throttle body nothing ,, so i got the ecu scanned and the faults are ;

P0551 Power Steering Pressure Sensor Circuit Range/Performance
P0170 Fuel Trim Malfunction (Bank 1)
P0123 Throttle Position Sensor/Switch A Circuit High Input
P0327 Knock Sensor 1 Circuit Low Input (Bank I or Single Sensor)
P1327 Ignition - Integrated Phase detection

iv had a compression test done all good

i think the ecu needs setting up for my car ,,, but iv got somone to have a look at her tomorrow ,, il keep you posted

if anyone has any ideas ,, let me know

    i fixed this by putting the original ecu back in, after getting it repaired of course.
