Hi all.
I found something else this morning. I took a drive to the shops and on my way back the engin started stuttering and sputtering again. I pulled off and pulled the plug off the temperature control sensor. And true as god it was running much smoother. It smelled richer, but smoother.
Please can anyone tell me why. What happens when the ecu goes into loop.
I am really lost here.

I found this useless injector seal this morning when I decided to just have a look. Next thing I am going to do is replace the original metal inlet manifold gasket with a oil proof paper gasket.
I find it very hard to believe that a mechanic can re-install an engine without replacing the whole gasket set. Damn is this what the world has come to?
Well I should not complain, what did I expect from buying a R 20 000 car.?

I think you are on the right track to finding your problem. It may even be a combination of things causing the irrational idle. Keep doing what your doing. :)
