Acceleration 'hole' - Engine/Ancilliaries - The Lotus Forums #ForTheOwners Jump to content


Recommended Posts

I'm not so fluent in english but I will try to do my best.

I appologize in advance .

Can someone help me?
I own a 1989 Lotus Esprit Turbo in excellent condition.
I encounter a small problem but very annoying.
When accelerating in first, sometimes in second gear but never in other gears,

there is a small 'hole' during acceleration, less than a second, and then it starts again very well.
The carburettors have been overhauled and well balanced, the ignition and spark plugs are new, the pump is working properly.
Does anyone have an idea?

 

Thanks for your help.

Jean

No, I know some Esprit turbo with carbs. Thanks to Jonwat, the problem is fixed.

It does sound like a carb problem, maybe the float heights are not correctly set or possibly the accelerator pumps are not delivering the correct amount of fuel when the pedal is pressed.

The procedures for checking the float heights & how to check & adjust the accelerator pumps is detailed in the manual.  when  you say the pump is working correctly do you mean the fuel pump or the accelerator pumps? 😀

Cheers,
