    Cheers lads as I said done all basics, now you've explained how it works, must be fault on ecu as I've lost 2& 3 , I've contacted the guy you said repairs them , he said it's a common fault on the old ecu, gave me a really cheap price, thanks for the help cheers. Dave

  11. Speed sport. Ecu

    Hi everyone just joined WSCC, recently bought a speed sport 1.8 silver top on jenvey throttle bodies,very low mileage car, was purring along,went out today only went 100 meters and started running like a pig ,it was like it had gone into limp home mode, I know sweet FA abound fuel injection,although I know my way around carb cars. Tomorrow i thought I'd check the plugs ,make sure there's spark and that's how much I know.so if anyone can help would be appreciated, although I pick things up quickly keep it simple for now ( so what's the next step). I was told to buy a code reader ,but I noticed they were 16 pine can I get a 9 pin, found the ecu the make is MBE. The car factory built in 2000. All half appreciated. Cheers. Dave
