Bravo 1.6 stalling choking idling

Hello guys, i have seen many people here are willing to help & improve our cars, and i am having a problem for months . It all began when my fuel pump broke, and i have replaced it with new one. problem is this.
when i start car cold, engine keeps stalling and car stops,
with engine little warmed up ,car is stalling again, but it doesnt go off ,poor idling
with car driving , i floor gas pedal, car is choking for few seconds , and then goes like mad, after that engine is idling perfectly with no problems
I have replaced fuel filter, checked all leads for fuel delivery (still i didnt check the pressure in the system, dont have manometer), on diag it reads that the 1st or 2nd spark is missfiring (changed all sparks ,because im miserable ), checked air intake and its ok. Love this car but im having headaches for months. thanks for reading and sorry for bad eng. Cheers!

Re: Bravo 1.6 stalling choking idling

You changed the spark plugs, did you change the coil pack?

Try starting it from cold in the dark with the bonnet up. Look for any stray flashes

Cheers

Re: Bravo 1.6 stalling choking idling

when i start car cold, engine keeps stalling and car stops,
with engine little warmed up ,car is stalling again, but it doesnt go off ,poor idling

Sounds like fuel delivery -blockage- air in system

poor idling
with car driving , i floor gas pedal, car is choking for few seconds , and then goes like mad, after that engine is idling perfectly with no problems

Sounds like heater broken in lambda sensor

Re: Bravo 1.6 stalling choking idling

i would expect the lambda to be out of circuit on a cold start up.

Re: Bravo 1.6 stalling choking idling

thx for reply
if you meant to say coil pack for spark cables, i didnt check it, ill see if those cables are faulty

fuel delivery -blockage- air in system ... i think there is circulation in the system and all air by this time would come out from fuel tank

lambda sensor i dont know ,maybe false reading, would diag disply error

air valve , one question, is air valve- stepmotor controled by ECU ? sometimes
all those computers can screw up big!

but therefore when i drive car like lunatic for 10 minutes , it all goes normal again , its like loss of pressure and could be incorrect fuel pressure ( ecu demands highly strict 3.0+0.5% bar, i forgot to mention , when i tested my actuators on diag fuel pump worked for 15 sec, after that car would start normally ,
in case when i turn the key on ( on street ), pump works for 3 or 4 sec (normal), 1st start allways fail,2nd starts engine on with help of gas pedal,
cables or air valve is maybe a problem ,i`ll check it and come back with results

Re: Bravo 1.6 stalling choking idling

I think I had something similar with my 1.6, problem was in injectors. One of the injectors was bad and when i press my foot down it goes to 2400 rpm and stays there for a few moments and there is no acceleration, and after that it goes like well. Do you have something like that?
