Gday all,

I have an issue that comes and goes where the power stutters under load. Seems fine when idling and giving it a rev. Im thinking a dodgey connection somewhere.

Also it seems an old issue that I never really rectified is also there still, sounds like the ignition and fuel pump relays are still clicking flat out when driving normally, intermittently, this can come and go and not always seem to be with the above issue.

Can someone please also explain the "crash loop" that these two relays are linked into? May help me diagnose the issues further.

Sounds like ground problems to me.
Check for zero ohms between block and battery, Block and body,EEC pin 40,60 to batt, bascially all the grounds to batt negative.

Thanks for the reply. I checked all the earth points and it looked good. Mate told me to check the TPS and its voltage, and I did. Seems it was the culprit. The voltage was 0.81 and I adjusted it to 0.99.

So far a good outcome.

TPS shouldn't cause that problem unless the TPS itself is faulty. 0.81V is perfectly normal.

Annnnd seems you're right lol. Back to the drawing board. Its ignition related, pretty sure.
