I get a flat spot as well up to 2000RPM after first start...well it feels that way because the car doesn't pull after 2000...I figured it's my hand brake stuck, because as I drive slowly it squeaks and once I get to about 30km/hr it suddenly loosens up and it's back to normal driving.


phong- did you check the shaft when you did the gasket doco on your car?


Sorry about the reply on this one :shock:.

Nah I didn't. The engine that I used during my head gasket change was a working engine...well according to previous owner. So I assumed it's all good. Arm79 and I pulled the distributor out one time to fix replace my TFI and we had a look at the gear on the end of it, seemed fine and not worn. No metal shards as far as I could see, so I think it's safe so far.

My engine however, has a rattle noise now, which I think is due to by big end bearings. So need to sort that out.

In saying that, I have noticed that I barely get the 2000RPM flat spots anymore...the occasional one everytime during start up, but not as much as I used. Also I have found by warming up the engine (5 - 10 mins) prior to driving, I never got a flat spot...*shrugs*

the police ecu i put in, it now doesnt flatspot durring WOT at 3500rpm too?

Another thing too check is the manifold wiring harness that goes to that square plug that sits between 5-6 intake runners. It rubs through the plastic spiral cover where it goes over the back a/c pipes just left of the washer fluid bottle.
