  1. Nice car for your daughter ! (especally the price) but my daughter really want Elan M100 ..... Y.Hotta
  2. Well, I just recived a mail from Dermot for analysing my freescan log (Now I got USB adaptor to connect the IBM laptop working fine ). And I'm very happy with the result from Dermot ! Many thanks Dermot !!! So, the conlusion is the O2 sensor fault caused the engine troble. Have a nice Easter Y.Hotta Now I can start the brake upgrade project
  3. Get well soon Fraser ! I hope you will out from hospital soon !!!
  4. Well, I mean you should pressed out (hydraulic presses ) with some e.g socket/pipe to fit the around the neck and pressed out ! What I did first was I pressed from top and what happed, just the bolt came from the bottom !
  5. Hi Jonthan I replaced few years ago and You need to pressed out but don't pressed from the top ! Y.Hotta
  6. As I can remember there are el. terminals back of the Choke lever (Steven type 88) ! And I give the Choke cable to Malc (Espritism) you can ask him ! Y.Hotta
  7. I think, it better to test the lift motor just disconnect two cables from lift motor and connect 12 v directory (very short time!!) to see window goes up /down ok ! if working Ok , then you have a bad connection e.g. ground or cable connector or switches. the lift motor used more than 4A I think ! and therefore swich or connector may damanged. I used 2 relay and diode (each door) to reduced the load ! Y.Hotta
  8. Happy Birthday Simon !! It was nice to meet you at Donnington! Y. Hotta

  16. Thanks guys I really hope the O2 sensor is caused the problem !!! I woulder how long O2 senser has life time ? I'm thinking.... it's nice to have some spare like O2 sensor, MAP... Does anybody any comments/suggeestion for a home mechenic (with limited tools ) I ran the injections(S4 enigne) on my Espirt turbo Carb. changed last year and this winter was the first time with Injection and I 'm woldering how avaiblity with these sensors. (I'm driving my Esprit every day about 40 km ) Y.Hotta
  17. No luck today I will contact PUK or SJ to order O2 sensor tomorrow ! I hope it will solve my problem ...... (I have to work from 7AM tomorrow, so a beer/whisey and bed time ) Y.Hotta
  18. Hi folks Her is the today stauts : THe driving with O2 sensor on highway (100-140 Km) no problem but down to 60- 80KM (or 2000- 3000 RPM), its just misfireing or what shall I call (bad responding) So, way back disconnect O2 sensor then I can drive thought the town 40-80 Km speed No problem. After 30 km drive and back to home then connect the FreeScan but funny thing is now showing O2 votage not bad was before (Not up/down as before ). The MAP sensor showing between 0.46 - 0.56 even swapped to the new MAP sensor not change (even swap the ECU but Not changed at all ) ? It should some thing I missed her (I should check again cables some where maybe bad connection or bad cables And another probem I got is my old laptop hang many time; so I can't record the logs (what a luck ..... Need coffee break ...) Y.Hotta
  19. Thanks folks I think I'm learing a lot ! My car has no CAT, so no problem that point ! I have also a spare MAP sensor, So I will replace MAP and check the vaccue line to MAP sensor ! I have no spare O2 sensor at the moment, So I can't see O2 sensor is deffected !! Any id
  20. Thanks Mark Such a quick reply ! I checked again logs and As you see in log O2 sensor showed very low voltage but came black gas out after few min. I took some logs with and without O2 sensor and tried to understand what showed. When I disconnected O2 sensor the stop black gas no misfiring ! and ideling is OK. the last logvoltage showed very low. when I disconnected showed constant around 0,475 V. So, I hope the problem is only O2 sensor (hope Not ECU). I wil test drive tomorrow without O2 sensor !! Regards Y.Hotta
  21. Sorry Mark I have a spare coil, so I replaced but nothing changed ! (and 12 V to connector ) I think I tried to RMP up lille up to see it's changed ! Now I have ony code 44 (O2 circuit problem) and checked manual ! Manual mension some points like fuel pressure, MAP sensor, .. I tried to disconnect O2 sensor ! What happen is running much better and Not black exahus but when I reconnected O2 sensor started again ! Questio is ECU or O2 sensor ? Any comment ? Y.Hotta
  22. Still running very bad but after checking cable connection etc.. I only got code 44 !! And her is the new freescan log ! Does anyone check the log ? Y.Hotta
  23. Hi Mark-TC Many thanks the infromation I will check the coil !! If you comming to Denmark(Copenhargen) just call (+45) 29236650 Y.Hotta
  24. Thanks Mark-TC I also noticed the O2 voltage was up/down and the knock sensor vaule may wrong ? I will check O2 sensor, the Coil connection and keep inform her tomorrow (I will take fri from work) Great to hear others advice ! Regards Y.Hotta
  25. Just back from work and I logged just lille csv log yesterday ! :yes Does any one can look at the see what can be wrong ! I attached log file her. I logged while engine was running as idle (not driving) ups I can't upload exec file ? Y.Hotta
