Throttle lag

Hey guys,

As the title suggest's I am having some issues with the accelerator , ever since I got back from my Holiday I am having some issues with a small lag on the pedal.

For example if I hold 2nd to 3000 rpm and then flaw the pedal about 0.5 seconds later the engine responds pushing me into the seat, now this is very frustrating because when you leave 2rd reving to say 4800 rpm and put it in 3rd and flaw the throttle again it does the same thing between gears so this loses alot of time to 60 and means getting the bite right is all funny due to not being able to set the right revs

At the moment the pedal is abit stiff when I dont use the car much so tomorrow i am gonna WD40 it and hope its that... But im doubtful, maybe the cable is stretched???? or at worse something wrong with the fuel injection system?

What you guys think

Adam

Re: Throttle lag

sounds like you are describing a hesitation rather than a sticky cable.

Re: Throttle lag

No definatly not me hesistating I am driving how i always drive but there is some lag which has appeared.. I guess you could call it a flat spot almost where the engine wont respond for a few seconds its very annoying!

Re: Throttle lag

Maybe not, problem came back and I still sat and blamed the Bosch Super 4's, so went and got some Champion EON 2's today and some Waynesnjector cleaner and it seems to of knocked the issue on the head again So it seems the Bosch Super 4's where the issue as the cleaner wont work right away!

Re: Throttle lag

totally off topic, just noticed you are in Chester. I've got friends there and am around quite often. I'll have to keep an eye for you!
