Mk2 error code 12, revs hunting, won’t idle.

Hi all, right, I’m getting fed up with this fecking car now! I have an error code: 12, distributor or wiring issue. I can’t set the a ignition timing due to the revs hunting and refusing to have a steady idle. I have the TE1 and E1 terminals bridged. All earths/ wires coming from the distributor plu...

Re: Frustrating misfire!!

Replaced the coil, fired her up which was fine but after 30 seconds or so, the revs rise slightly then she cuts out.

Any ideas what could be causing this.

Cheers, Michael.

Re: Frustrating misfire!!

Ok, so I've just been under the car and disconnected the knock sensor, when I fire her up I still get the same result. Does that mean its not the knock sensor?

Re: Frustrating misfire!!

I've just replaced the coolant sensor to the ECU so that should be fine.

Where is the knock sensor? Is there anyway to test it?

Cheers for the help.
Michael.

Re: Frustrating misfire!!

Good timing.

Here's a video of it starting from cold. At 4.13 you can see the revs drop a bit and it starts to misfire.

I hope someone can diagnose this!

Re: Frustrating misfire!!

It's a Rev3 I have and don't have a standard air box.

I have fairly recent Toyota leads.

Re: Frustrating misfire!!

Seems to be random, as I said, seems fine for the first 2 minutes then starts misfiring in a random way.
No error codes stored.
It hesitates when driving, I don't even want to drive it just now incase I'm doing damage.

Re: Frustrating misfire!!

Hi, timing was done at the rebuild by TBDevelopments so will be correct.

The Unichip is a piggyback ECU. Now that I have removed it, it's out the equation.

Cheers, Michael.

Frustrating misfire!!

Hi all, I'm struggling to find a misfire on my rev3 turbo. I've replaced the spark plugs and the leads, dizzy cap and rotor arm are all in good condition. I've had the coil pack out but looks in good condition, was replaced when Tim rebuilt the engine. Coolant temp sensor replaced and Lambda sensor ...

Re: Anyone in the West End of Glasgow just now, this weekend

Hey mate, sorry I didn't notice you had replied. Yeah, it's a rev3 turbo, what have you got? Any chance we could meet up this week or weekend? Anyone else around then too? Really want to get this sorted as it should be a quick fix if I can get a look at rev 3+ engine bay. Cheers. Michael.

Bearsden mate, where are you? I could meet you if that's easier but the MR2 is on axle stands.

Cheers, Michael.

Re: Anyone in the West End of Glasgow just now, this weekend

Thanks for that Andy but unfortunately not a good angle for me to see exactly what I need to. Anyone near the west end tomorrow?

Cheers, michael.
