Intermittent Idiling Problem?
Posted 02 April 2004 - 02:49 PM
My 93 Legacy Wagon, which runs great, looks great....has a strange intermittment idiling problem....
When the engine is cold, here in canada eh!, its fine, but as it warms up and im stopped at a red light its starts to feel like its gonna stall, but doesn't instead it recovers and conttinues to 'studder'....there is no problem when i drive though.
The problem seems to be connected to the charging system because when i turn the hearter off it runs better and it also tends not to do this if its in park...? ...My CAA guys says my alternator is in good shape..
Ive changed the plugs, and my dealer couldn't figure it out he said to wait till it gets worse and the engine light comes on so that the onboard computer would have a decodable message of the problem.

The grand-prize (firm handshake), goes to greyghost with the faulty-plug- wire suggestion.
$50(cdn.) and the problem is gone, gone, gone!
