RE: cannot find the oxygen sensor
your help is seriously appreciated...
I might be wrong.. but I think I landed on a different continent.. was under the impression this is a US board [:0][:0]
lol.. at least I get answers here :-)
Besides, I do not thing I have a rotary idler adjust. My car does feature the idle adjust via the air bypass... based on your link it seems either or system (or did I not read correctly?)
There are not many but a few differences between the Euro and US version.
All points aside, I belive that I have a vacuum problem. My car just arrived 5 days ago form a very hot state (Honolulu) and most the rubber breather hoses and fittings are hardened. The only test I have done so far was to measure my vacuum on the intake magnifold at idle.. I read ~250mBar which is to low.
currently I am waiting on a bunch of rubber parts to replace.....
in the meanwhile, what do you think could cause a slight rough idle. Besides the idle, something else that might be of interest: the car starts on the first turn when the airfilter box is removed.. but takes about 1-2 seconds with the filter box in place. When the engine is on operating temperature the car will take about 8 seconds to start, however with the accelerator depressed about 1/5th of the way it starts on the first turn.... do you see a connection ?
Like always, I appreciate your help!
