    Zetec missing

    Hi posted a reply yesterday,don’t think it went through,Dave you said the TPS could have slipped around, if so could I set it with a voltmeter,or has it got to be done with computer, anyway thanks for all your help getting a good idea about this injection lark, and thanks to the member for offering me the loan of his gadget,il see how it goes I might take you up on that. Cheers. Dave

    Zetec missing

    Hi thanks for all you help, some great advice as usual ,one of you mentioned about the TPS being loose i haven’t checked that (possibility ). I’ll be leaving the car alone for a few weeks working away, bye the way Trev turtle thanks for the offer to borrow you device ( very kind) I might take you up on that when I have another go at it. Cheers. Dave

    Zetec missing

    Dave you was the one who recommended me to Oddifields, when i needed new ignition drivers,I see they do a unit to plug into ecu, would this be something that replaces laptop,it is a 9 pin plug with readout screen,I tried to contact Ian but wasn’t available,yes this is on his web site

    Zetec missing

    Hi Dave didn’t take a note of the readings, just thought I’d check if the TPS was ok ,going from a low to high reading smoothly ,as I said I have never done anything with fuel injection all I know that sensors are just variable resistors, I’m afraid all the technical jargon and settings with computers has gone over my head, just though it would be a case of checking ignition components, and sensors and possibly clean fuel system. CheersDave

    Hi Dave just tested TPS as you said, I had .09 v as I increased throttle slowly steady rise from minimum to max throttle voltage increased up and down,so the TPS seems to be ok,I’m thinking it could be dirty injectors, because the car was idle for a long period. Cheers. Dave

    Zetec missing

    I’ve not got a laptop , can I just disconnect the plug and put a multimeter on the TPS neg & signal connections and get a smooth reading when I open the throttle,fuel injection is fairly new to me, I’m looking for the easy way out,I understand what your saying Dave by doing it the way by powering it up and disconnecting the coil pack, am I right in saying I then test for smooth rising & fallin voltage between neg & signal cable.

    Zetec missing

    Hi it’s an mbe, got in touch with the company that put new ignition drivers in it, and they replied it points to TPS , if I disconnect the TPS Canó I test between the positive cable, and the signal cable, to see if it goes up the scale when opening throttle,hope that’s the easy way cheers

    Zetec missing

    Hi I’ve got a problem with my1800 zetec missing,it is running on the older red bodied Jenny bodies, I’m old school carborators, Symptoms. Open throttle flat spot hesitation for couple of seconds,2 stop at junction somtimesengine is hunting between almost zero to tick over, 3 traveling very slowly seems to be a bit jerky, what’s your opinions,do you think that the favourite would be the throttle position sensor as I’m getting it all symptoms at the same Rev range, it is not plugs , leads or coil pack, as I changed those recently for a different problem, which turned out to be an ignition driver failed, so I had both drivers renewed, and ecu fully tested, which sorted it. Much appreciated. Dave

    Jenny throttle bodies

    Thanks Dave,it’s a fixed type so start checking plugs ,leads, etc cheers

    Jenny throttle bodies

    Hi I’ve the older red Jenny throttle bodies on mr car the car has a miss at the moment ,I’ll go through all the obvious stuff to check, one question on the right hand side of thr bodies there’s a round pot which a fuel line come underneath, and then out to the fuel rail, what does this do ,what is it called, do it need any maintenance or regular changing. Cheers. Dave
