Carina E Problems - Stuart_B
Hi all,

Since buying my Carina E its always had a problem with hesitation. It only ever happens when trying to accelerate on motor ways...when it changes from its lean burn mode.

Also it has a problem with 'Pinking'... it again seems to occur when accelerating but at low RPM around 1500 - 2500. I have checked the timing and bridged the terminals in the diag box and its running @ 10.

Lastly the throttle seems to stick closed when cold... this only happens when the car has been left. Once you give the throttle a blip its fine.

The car is a 97 model with a 1800cc 7AFE engine.

So any advice on any of my problems would be greatly appreciated.
