Idle jet
« on: 21:12, Mon 29 August 2011 »
Car is running really well, touch wood and apart from slipping clutch , which is about to be sorted. I took out the idle jet today and cleaned and when replacing it , if I screw it in 100% the car splutters hunts and dies, but let it off 1/8 th of a turn and it's fine and idles perfectly.What would cause this ? Any opinions happily received . Cheers

Well the idle jet should be tightened up in the hole so something is still blocked. Are you sure its totally clear, i have seen it may times where you think its clear but uts got smallest bit of dirt in there, the hole is only .45mm wide so its easy to block.

I'll take it back out tomorrow and re-check it/ blow it out. I'll let you know the outcome . Cheers
