    I'm pretty sure I got rid of the old throttle! But I've spoken to skunk2 and fingers crossed I should be getting a replacement

    B18 starts then dies instantly

    tried what you said. I unplugged the sensor, slackened off the throttle cable and started from scratch. Once I'd finished it did fire up and keep running so i thought I'd solved it. Untill this morning. i had to hold the throttle open again. But it is alot better than it has been, i'd also sorted the vac leak that seemed to be coming from my boost guage sensor. I've adjusted the idle again so we will see in the morning if that's cracked it.

    Funny MOT advisory

    I watched a DC2 vid on youtube and thought i check up the reg plate on dvla MOT/TAX checker to see if its still on the road......to find this amusing advisory lol. Couldnt believe it at first and wondered if that was even allowed to come up there made me chuckle a bit too haha...

    Couple of photos of Dirty DD tonight. We went to see the new film "Le Mans" with Matt Damon playing the part of Carroll Shelby. Awesome film, and never knew about his actual racing driver friend Ken Myles who had had such an input into the development and actual racing of the Ford GT40. Man was amazing, and should have won the Le Mans race. That photo of the 3 GT40's crossing the finishing line together has a whole new meaning to me now after seeing the film. Highly recommended seeing it! And thanks to my Gayle for finding the film as it isn't advertised much.

    Dan's Blue Vti Aerodeck

    It wouldn't be too bad using it all the time if the thing would run right! I did try and and swap the seats over but I need some brackets making up. I love the look of the dc2 seats but for every day I hate them

    Lol, DD was doing sometimes less than 500 miles between mot's mate! Now she's starting her new role as my daily driver she's already put on 700 miles this month! The ATR seats are niiiice! Prefer them to dc2's

    Yeah should set it with Iacv unplugged. And usually a link in the 2 pin service plug. Altho sometimes that link is used for a different function on hondata software. So maybe check in the program. TPS is correct for OEM. But again depends what range is locked in on the hondata.

    every time I've adjusted the idle I've left it plugged in, would that be the wrong way to set the idle then? With the tps thats calibrated and tight, I'm between 0.4v & 0.5v closed throttle and 4.5v wide open throttle.
  18. KiNK43

    B18 starts then dies instantly

    In that case. Unplug iacv and Check base idle is set correct using idle screw on throttle body and check iacv works. Check TPS is calibrated correctly and tight.

    B18 starts then dies instantly

    Yeah, I've got to hold the throttle open slightly. once its been running for a few minutes I can slowly release my foot from the accelerator and it'll idle.

    Does it stay running if you press accelarator a little?

    sorry the car has gone now, i have some spare headlights and wing mirrors. The blue one will be coming off the road next year for some more jobs so I'll have a clear out and post a new advert once thats done

    My 690bhp MB6.

    Yeah bet you've got a few quid invested in it now.

    Check basics like spark as above. Dizzys are a common fail. Do you have standard ecu, map sensor and Injectors? Try them See if works then.

    Forgot to update this! Wee Carly Cooper is sold, and have been driving DD as my daily for the past month. Shes been getting a lot dirtier than she's been for a long time (not really been outside the garage in winter since 2012) so many hours spent washing her to keep this crappy salt off her. Shes also been putting on the miles! Normally between 500 miles to at most 1500 miles a year.......... she's done around 700 miles or more in the month since i sold Carly! And have to say, shes been driving absolutely spot on. Really like driving her although missing the mpg of the mini and the fact i could throw the mini around without a care in the world but obvs DD gets driven with much more caution! One bad thing though......as of next week, we no longer have the car park at work to park her in. Its been sold to build houses on. And as the surrounding car parks (including the one Carly got hit in) are all full before 8am, i have nowhere safe to park her. Really pissed off as i know the area/town (i was brought up there) and know its rough as hell. Theres also parky wardens on the go so going to be struggling to find anywhere to park her. The hunt continues!....... Will get a wee pic up soon of DD in her new role cos not had a photo of her for a while.
