Nothing new to report. Awaiting J to work on it this weekend due to delays recently.

Would it not learn them without the reset? J seemed to think it would.

Puma 1.7 Rebuild Mk II

I decided to speak with the eBay seller about end term bhp goals with the Puma and they recommended a Stage 2 clutch. So I've sent the £41 extra via PayPal. This Stage 2 clutch requires 500 miles bedding in. Which is good in all honesty, as I need to save more on fuel. Then again, this won't be fitt...

Puma 1.7 Rebuild Mk II

J said he's checked over the TPS already. Checked the readings/parameters of the sensor and ensured they were within the manufacturer spec. So it's all working well. He does have another throttle body he's going to try to see if this will solve the judder issue. As it's only occuring when the accele...

2 week lead time in the clutch. 3 sensors and other bits to be fitted this week.

Clutch will have to wait until beginning of July when bodywork gets done

Stage 1 clutch ordered. It's purple - a colour that makes everything better, unless it's your skin colour.

Being 6'4" doesn't make a Puma spacious.

Puma 1.7 Rebuild Mk II

Car has been running the same. Better than it was, but still not perfect. The car is being dropped off at the workshop tomorrow night. Getting it back end of the week. I'm only working today and tomorrow then I have holiday, so I figured it was a good time for J to work on the car. Third party MAF w...

Puma 1.7 Rebuild Mk II

J confirmed beginning of July is good for dealing with the rust. Thinking maybe I should get the 3 struts resprayed in same colour as the inlet manifold? Pacific green metallic Not sure if it'd contrast well with the silver. But I think the engine bay needs more matching colours. As a green inlet ma...

Puma 1.7 Rebuild Mk II

Just had a call from J. He spoke to a local parts dealer and confirmed pricing at just under 100 for the 3 sensors. All genuine Ford parts.

Crank position sensor coolant temp sensor and cam position sensor.

All ordered and to be fitted next week along with the clutch and clutch bearing

Puma 1.7 Rebuild Mk II

Judders very noticeable on cold start but not at all bad once warmed up. I don't think it's any better than it was, but the idling certainly is. As is the power.

Here's hoping one of the next few sensors or possible fixes can resolve the issue.

Thanks for the advice, I'll recommend this to J. he also said a crank speed sensor might be worth replacing. He said a coolant temp sensor and cam position sensor wouldn't be a bad idea either. But he said the crank speed sensor would be an important one. Anyways, with 5 days off next week he has pl...

Puma 1.7 Rebuild Mk II

Idling is better - the IAV is catching the dip in revs. It's still noticeable; moreso with the Mondeo throttle body fitted. he said it's rather worn and it doesn't make a complete seal as the butterfly valve is slightly oval from use over the years. He said before that the idling was spot on with th...

Puma 1.7 Rebuild Mk II

BIG UPDATE:

Low RPM judder and rough idling fixed. Poorly fitted Idle Air Valve and Lambda to blame.

Gearbox rattle has been confirmed as clutch release bearing. Will wait until next month to get another clutch to be fitted along with it.

Car due back tomorrow.

Cars being looked at on Thursday now and not Wednesday. I don't mind to be honest. The situation isn't ideal by any means, but it's workable and that's the main thing. I mustn't grumble. At the end of the day, the delays in this project seemed unacceptable, and yet I could do nothing but accept them...

Puma 1.7 Rebuild Mk II

True enough. My patience is just a bit all over the place at the moment. I'll avoid going to anyone else until this is fixed. I hope Wednesday gets the remaining 3 issues solved.

Got more parts today in the post. New headlight seals, new coolant header tank and a Sachs slave cylinder.

J has asked me not to get anyone else to work on the car if he still is. He said the whistle is possible the induction kit or the idle air valve. Guess I'll have to wait and see on Wednesday.

Chris @ LMS said he'd get back to me about availability for next week. I hope it doesn't come to involving a 3rd mechanic at this point. With any luck the judder and the gearbox rattle can be sorted on Wednesday. Then everything is solved except for the bodywork. If I did ever have to go to get any ...

When it came to installing the lambda he asked which one it was. I said I'd bought a generic 4 wire lambda as per J's recommendation. He said he never had much luck with generic sensors and recommended getting an OEM equivalent. Are these the 2 types I'd need to buy? cat2.PNG If this doesn't work th...

He made a cut out from some brown paper assuming it'd work but it didn't. What else could the gasket be made from? He reckons that it must be this where the whistling noise is coming from. Idling when parked or driving at low speed and low rpm there's a constant high pitched whistle that becomes ina...

Puma 1.7 Rebuild Mk II

Judder isn't as bad but still not 100%. RPM dipping and trying to stall hasn't been solved either. He said the engine sounds like the cams are the issue. He recommended a remap and maybe see if the cam timing needs changing. I think taking it to Lightning Motorsport might be the best solution for bo...
