OK. I'm gonna be running my little 1.2 for a while yet before I have the money to get the X14XE in...
Thing is though, I'm getting a really annoying flat-spot with this engine. Between idle and 2100 RPM (ish ) it feels dead as a door-nail! Even with my foot to the floor, the damn thing just refuses to go - in any gear! Then, when I (eventually) hit 2100 RPM, it picks up really well
That's not all though! My engine is also revving on when decelerating. When I go to change gear (most noticeable from 1st to 2nd) the engine revs on for like a second or so (like I'm not taking my foot off the accel when I dip the clutch) It sounds like I'm a learner or summat!!! This is also most noticeable when going down hill; when I take my foot off the accelerator, you don't feel the engine brake for a second or so.
Are these problems related???
The car's been like this since I got it (about a month or so ago) It has done just 24K (P-Reg) and has a full Vaux service history. 24K in 6 years means the car has obviously been standing for long periods of time. Could this be the reason?
Car is a Corsa-B 1.2 8v (yes I know B4 you say anything) I just couldn't let it by as it's minty minty mint mint.
I'd really like to get this sorted as it's fookin' annoying!!!
