pete b added a topic in Engine / MechanicalRunning lumpy on idle b seriesIf its not one thing its another..
just been rebuilt b16a2 ran perfectly fine even took it round the block and was all ok then few days later went back to it and was like this?
at first i thought i ran it low on fuel so changed fuel filter n plugs (again) yet still the same,
if i hold the revs anything above idle it runs fine but if i rev it and let off it cuts out compleatly, sounds almost like theres a slight misfire on idle?
it hunts between 750 and 1200rpm
was told to check for air leaks so did the old spray of wd40 here n there to listen for a change in engine tone as it would suck in thru a split/disconnected hose
aaaand still nothing
was just geting it all ready for the 1st of next month as its all taxed and insured from then n its been off the road for 8 months and now this, kill me now!

pete b added a topic in Wheels / Tyres / BrakesSerious brake problem! Help!Hopeing someone can shed some light onto the large problems i came into today
Well to start off all of this is on a Ek4
i decided i wanted to change all the brakes, new pads and drilled and grooved dics's all round as well as braided lines
in the end we ran out of time so all we had done was rear discs and pads and braided lines all round, we then began bleeding the system
started with passenger rear, then drivers rear, passenger front and finaly drivers front
Still after all of this with ignition off it built up some pressure but when ignition was on it went straight to the floor with ease
So we then did it all again but for longer and then also repeted this with one of the bottles that attach to an air line so it sucks all the air out
changed the lines back to originals just incase and still nothing
then swapped the master with the one on my other car..nothing
after then bleeding the abs, master cylinder, prop valve and all corners again still nothing!!
so now my car is stuck at work on a ramp and the boss is guna go nuts on monday morning, brilliant!
fuck my actualy life
if anyone can help or suggest anything it would be muchly appretiated
