  1. Turns out my ECU was toast. Located a replacement high torque ECU from Mike Sekinger. Thanks
  2. It appears my ECU is NFG Anyone know where I find a high torque ecu ? Thanks
  3. Even cold no hum from pumps and no start, I checked fuses, fuel shut off button and the fuel pressure relief valve which there is no pressure.
  4. Hi All, On my way to a car show in my very shiny 1999 Esprit V8 and cruising along at 80 the engine instantly died. I stopped and started it up again and went on my way then 5 minutes later the same thing and this time will not start at all. Now flat bedded back to garage. It has done this all this summer just driving along and intermittently the engine cuts off. But today has stopped but will not start at all any more. Any Idea please ? and if fuel pumps where can i source them. Love my car Lucifer
  5. Can anyone offer advice as my 99 V8 Esprit A/C Compressor bearing is very noisy. Can you just replace clutch bearing without removing the engine ? if so where is the best place to buy the part ? Many thanks Wayne
  6. A CAUTIONARY TALE OF V8 HEAD GASKETS ! Finally it turns out the aftermarket Head gaskets were total crap. My engine was rebuilt three times and finally blew up due to overheating. $30,000 later and installed a replacement used engine which I had replace the head gaskets again. I went with OEM head gaskets and finally its not overheating Very expensive lesson learned. Also JAE has discontinued selling the aftermarket head gaskets.
  7. Thanks for the advice Dave, do you are anyone know the best place to get a scan tool ?
  8. Finally it turns out the aftermarket Head gaskets were total crap.

I went with OEM head gaskets and finally its not overheating Very expensive lesson learned. Also JAE has discontinued selling the aftermarket head gaskets. However when driving at low speed the engine seems a little lumpy and hesitant and labors. If you put your foot down it will go from hesitating to absolutely flying like it should. Btw idles just fine. Any ideas please? Everything replaced leads,plugs except fuel injectors. Other than that if I drive it hard it is the beast it should be. Thanks.
  9. I'm glad your fixed up but I have just changed the head gaskets and my overheating occurs as soon as the turbo's engage. I'm hoping mine is an air lock or blockage somewhere. Cheers
  10. Thank you so much for help guys, so far my mechanic has noticed my car is not blowing any heat into the car. So far it appears heater control valve may be seized so fingers crossed. I'll keep you posted.
  11. Thanks Guy's, My Tech is about to burp the system and do a pressure test. Fingers crossed.
  12. Welcome to my nightmare. I have owned a 1999 LOTUS ESPRIT V8 TWIN TURBO for 3 years now and its spent the last 3 years in the workshop. Rebuilt last engine twice and kept spewing coolant out of header tank when the Turbo's engage. My last engine blew up on the highway due to spewing and finally cracked block. $20,000 down the drain. So I bought another engine for $15,000 all good and even replaced head gaskets took it out for road test and deja Vu when the turbos engage it spews coolant out of header tank. Can someone please advise and we bled the system, water pump ,radiator hoses all good, New Stat only thing not changed is header tank and cap. So totally fed up now spent over $35,000 and still no joy. Please help !!!!
  13. Thanks for all your advice Guy's and will share with you the outcome as I replaced heads last time as well. So I'm scratching my head. Cheers
