Steptoe's photos Posted March 9 Share Posted March 9 I found it convenient just to delete the throttle body coolant inlet and outlet hoses and just cap things off. I have now noticed that the throttle body on my late 1998 Forester's EJ202 NA also has a three wire something on it that may be an ECU input ? or is it controlled by the ECU to do something? I have done three or four good trips in it , with the final trip having some real issues , maybe coincidentally after I added top grade premium 98 RON (Australiain RON, not same as US RON) instead of the usual base grade 91 RON fuel. Massive all four cylinder cut outs initially up mountain passes etc, but continued on on the plains on the way home. Just wondering if I have caused something, or the 360,000 km coil, leads or fuel pump are starting to tell me something. Or it is the fuel, which some have repoted similar weird, unexplained issues running these on premium Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
