This morning I fired up the soarer to warm up as i usually do,to my HORROR its struggled after start,lame idle and a loud tapping sound. This smoothed out after a few moments but scared the F@#k out of me,so i shut it down. No warnings appeared,system check normal. Possible contributers; Beforehand it hasn't run for 3 days ,also this tank of gas is regular after i couldn't obtain the usual premium. I realise could be any number of things but I appreciate any advice offered. Thanks
Thanks guys, Just fired her up then. Much better,no tapping or clacking this time,however she doesn't feel like her normal self. Not as smooth,somehow louder and tending to resonate just under 2000rpm. Also exhaust seems overly rich.(smells). Checked under bonnet,all seemed intact. Took gently round the block,apart from symtoms above seems o.k. Hoping might be simply replacing plugs ,leads.. CHEERS
Cheers fella's. Ultratune brookvale ran a dagnostic check over her today. They couldn't find what could have caused it,but suspect it was bad batch of fuel. Seems to be okay after some octane boost. NB: Last fuel uplift was at Shell Mosman/Cremorne.
