EA-81 hesitates going up hill
Posted 26 January 2004 - 08:38 PM
Engine looses power going up a hill and only when the gas pedal is pressed beyond about 80% to the floor.
Engine idles fine, gets good mileage and has plenty of power on level ground. A subaru mechanic suggested the accelerator pump was shot, but I see a nice stream of gas shoot into the carb when I floor it and the car accelerates fine on level ground. I even tried very slowly pressing the gas to accelerate up a hill and when I get to ~80% full throttle engine hesitates badly. The instant I back off, the power returns. Is it the power circuit/2nd barrel on the Hitachi. I was also thinking bad/weak fuel pump. Car is an 88 4WD hatchback with 150K. I appreciate any suggestions.

Depending on the hill this could be normal. Is this a hill you've travelled before? Has it always done this or is it a new problem?
Note; there is not a TPS on an EA81 powered hatch.

I've gone up the hills before without the problem. It just started a few days ago.
I betting on the fuel pump/filters. I hope that does it. I want to go play in the New England blizzard Wednesday.

Thanks to Foreign Auto Parts in Groton. I was looking for that front filter for a month. Those guys have everything.

Scott, we've met through email. I missed the Vermont JY run a couple months ago that you and Paul went on...hopefully I'll make the next one. And I'm not quite as bad as he says I am...at least one other person was planning on coming to his Xmas party after I said I'd go.
