    2.8i running crap

    I've had an issue with my Capri for a while, when its at idle or light throttle openings upto about 1500 rpm it tends to hunt a little. It's not a misfire, it almost sounds like all 6 cylinders fire, then theres a second pause before they all fire again! I've replaced dizzy cap, rotor arm, plugs, done valve clearances, set timing to 12 degrees btdc and its done nowt. Any ideas?

    I had the same problem.

    There is a piston in the injection that brakes once in a while.
    It stops to move and engine gets too mutch gas. The injection unit a a bit tricky to take apart.

    Try a new fuel filter and some injector cleaner first.

    All sorted now- changed the metering head and it runs sweet as you like. The new one sticks shut slightly- it takes a second or two of turning over before it'll start but runs fine, I'll clean it out when I get a minute. Cheers all!
