hey guy's.

when im driving my car it has this major dead spot/surge when it is in the range of about 2-3000 rpm...it just sits there for a bit and then it just takes off....if i drive it hard which i dont want to do it goes straight through it but when driving normally it doesn't like that rev range.

if anyone has or had this problem please let me know as i would love to know what the problem is.

cheers

matt

Both mine and my wife's EL Fairmont Ghias do this. Hers does it one time after a cold start, and mine does it on and off until its warm.
I'm leaning towards it being something to do with timing as both of ours have only been set with the engine off.

Possible IAT sensor (intake air temp sensor) Could be reading its cold and slightly flooding the engine.
