Might be me your talking about, but the idle was fine, and ran great at WOT, but had a bad miss at certain revs at part throttle. I found the temp sensor connector, when you lightly nudged it the thermos would come on and smoke would bellow out the exhaust and the idle was erratic.

Problem resurfaced a few times, but has run perfect ever since i replaced the crank angle sensor and balancer???

OH MY GAWD. And there I was hoping for a nice easy fix for my idling and cutting out issues.

I, personally, think my issues come from a half blown up head gasket or warped head...

But I was hoping for it to be caused by the leads.

EF of the 300,000km variety. EEC-V. Idles okay but sounds like it may stall if idling in gear. OCCASIONALLY it starts cutting out when sitting on a normal rev-range or lightly on the throttle. Usually goes away for a period if I floor it (at which time a bellow of smoke appears from exhuast before wheels start chewing at tarmac and car launches off quite nicely - other than the "you're motors phucked mate" exhuast cloud left behind...!)

Also have a slight oil leak and water leak! OH MY GAWD, isn't this one sounding awkard... :!: )

The oil is getting out around the front of the rocker cover, so not too much issues... The water - Well, to tell you the truth, it only dribbles out when I stop the engine and I cannot find where it's coming from. Is up near the firewall somewhere - seems to work its way down and drip off the front of the gearbox sump....

Whatever. Yet another long-winded cry for help from someone who loves their car but doesn't have enough money!
