    Engine : 2.0 turbo

    Year : 2005

    Default 1.8 problems

    ive been having some problems now for quite some time my emission light has been on and on tech tests which are costing me 65 quid a go are coming back with no codes. now on occasions ive had the car with the spanner through it. the first time this came on it made a strange noise when i tried to start it up, so i turned it back off and started it again. this time it started and it drove home with no power what so ever and wouldnt go over 4000 rpm. well last night the same thing happened on start up turned it off and spanner light went out drove ok but emission light is back on.

    the revs are not ok it trys to stall always first thing in the morning and sometimes when its been left standing a while the revs bob up and down and there is no power put foot down in first when releasing the clutch and the revs drop right down almost like a turbo lag i know its different cus when i used to put foot hard down i would have wheels spinning ive cleeaned the throttle body but really want it sorted now dealers think it might be the ecu. could an ecu cause all these problems
    please help me guys i would appreciate it

    I can't understand why a code isn't stored mate. Mine was on the other week, occassionally I put my foot down and the car started missfiring, emmissions light came on. Vx said it was a missfire fault, faulty coil pack or spark plug, well I changed both and it has been fine since! But mine stored a code. Is your light on all the time?

    Check all the simple things mate, Earth strap, plugs even air and fuel filter. Have you had the MAF unplugged? Check all conections ect. Is your TB fly by wire or cable operated?

    well got the car back from the dealers and they have recommended a new ecu the only fault code present was po170 fule trim bank 1 running rich hence the bad fuel consumption, also the other problem found was the flexi down pipe it is split to get this all sorted ive been quoted 800 bags looks like some saving has to happen to get it sorted.

    good news for all 1.8 owners if they have a spare 4000 pound regal do an engine turbo conversion for the z18xe and it roughly puts out 230 bhp
