Hello all,
Still trying to fix an idle problem
An auto electn test my EF.
He then quoted $145 for repairing the ECU.

Apparently theres a problem with the connection of the earth to the ECU. Its made into 6 segments and instead of being soldered it was krimped and this faulty connection can cause spike in the voltage to the ignition coil. I think thats what he said.

Has anyone had this done or heard of it? Think it was called ECU re-earthed.
thank you in advance
