General Technical / Engine Stalling Thread
« on: January 04, 2012, 10:04:29 AM »
Hi folks,

Rex has started up its old tricks with the engine cutting out again.

I got her taxed 2 weeks ago and for the first 6 days of driving it - it  was fine, and i\'d thought that my change of spark plugs and repairing a  bared wire to the ignitors had sorted it!

however last week it started playing funny buggers:

- stalled when decellerating for a small roundabout, had to leave it off for a minute, started fine.

-1 minute later stalled when coming out of a roundabout, again had to  leave it for a minute before starting.  Then ok for rest of the day.

- took it out 3 nights ago, gave it a wash at the jetwash, all seemed ok  but then it stalled when i was driving up a hill.  Managed to start OK  after sitting for a while.

- about 5 mins later stalled again when on the over-run coming down a hill, pulled over and it started OK, then just went home.

Today decided to take the inspection panel off the fuel pump area to  check the connector and wiring - all looked OK, so decided to go for a  drive.

- took the car out, went up to the garage to fill the tyres with air,  then for a wee cruise to see if i could get it to stall and it did.   came out from a roundabout onto dual carriageway and she stalled when i  was accelarating up (that\'s 3 times it\'s stalled coming off  roundabouts).

- this time though really bad, trying to start and it wouldn\'t,  eventually it would and then cut out after 10 yards of driving.   Sometimes got it to start and i would idle and it would cut out after 10  seconds, sometimes 30 seconds.  Managed to get into a junction where i  sat for a while and eventually started her again to go down the dual  carriageway for 100 or so yards for it to stall again (4th gear cruising  steadily), pulled into a layby where i tried waiting and starting,  again it would cut out on idle after 10 or so seconds.  Eventually  managed to drive it home with no more issues.

so in summary,  when \'whatever\' is happening is happening it seems to  stall in idle, cruising, overrun, neutral, in gears, after roundabouts.  

sometimes i can go a couple of days with no problems, sometimes not, today was the worst it\'s ever been.

i hope all you brainy types can help me out here and advise on a sensible path to resolving this.

it feels like fuel cut when it happens at cruising speed, and it\'s  interesting that it was REALLY bad today after i had a look at the plug  at the fuel pump.

General Technical / Dashboard lights
« on: September 24, 2011, 08:58:11 PM »
Hi All,

I\'m trying to diagnose a peculiar issue on my new FD3.

I picked it up today (it\'s sweet) and drove it home with no issues, then when i went out tonight things started behaving a bit odd.

I have noticed that there are electrical issues, sometimes the passenger light doesn\'t flip up, speedo is intermittent, oil guage is intermittent, passenger electric window switch intermittent...

i am wondering if these could be all tied together and are causing the engine stall that i got tonight about 3 times.

i was quite happily crusing along in 5th gear about 60 and then all of a sudden, the car dies and it \'feels\' like the fuel pump stops, or some other sort of electrical issue happens.

additionally, which dashboard lights come on at start, as i see no engine management light which comes on, although it is an aftermarket ECU - could this be why?

Engine was rebuilt 4000 miles ago.

Just wanted to pop in and say hi, i am now the owner of this one:

look forward to chatting with you all over the coming months, hopefully not to often with problems!

It\'s a great car though not without some issues, speedo working intermittently, oil pressure guage similar.

Hi Guys (and girls)

Continuing with my pursuit of getting an RX7, can someone advise on what it\'s like to work on?

I.E. Engine out time etc - i\'ve done engine strip down and bearing replacement on my GT4 so i\'m alright with the spanner, and the angle grinder.

Hello there,


That\'s about the limit of what the Stella is allowing me to type just now.

Anyways, i currently own a Celica GT4 Carlos Sainz, but i have huge desires for the ....EL.
