Slight Idle Problem

Post by scot the sniper » Fri Apr 07, 2017 8:49 am

when idling in the jimny 04 plate btw it ticks over fine but quite a few times it dips in power. its like ur sitting nice and quiet idiling then it feels like someone has switched the heater rear demister on as you know that pulls alot of power from the battery on any car so it feels like someone has switched this on and it dips in power does it quite frequently and im sure its causing jimny to cut out you seem to just touch the throttle at times and it cuts out u need to give it plenty revs so it doesnt cut out any ideas guys its doing my head in maybe someone has had this before and cured it hopfully.

cheers

When did you service the engine last?

Did you replace that sensor that kept making the engine not stop?
