HI all

Over the last few days I have noticed the engine will cut out when I pull up to stop.

It doesnt matter if I draw up fast or slow or reversing, the tick over drops really low and then cuts out.

The tick over is set at approx 800 rpm. HELP PLEASE!!!!:attention:

Then the other AFM can be repaired very easily as per tutorial on here..which serves a double purpose..

If fitting the spare is no improvement it may just mean it has the same fault, usually a dry joint on the socket to PCB connector. Repairing the one you take off takes 30 minutes and gives you another shot at it, or a spare if the backup was OK.

I don't see it being coilpacks, they will start breaking down intermittently, it's rarely a constant predictable thing. AFM on the other hand almost always causes problems regardless of anything else, at lower speeds it's just a little slow, in the midrange it hesitates a little, and at the upper end it can get really rough. Of course on a turbo motor the effect might be more pronounced at higher rev's.

Checking coilpacks is simple..

With a digital multimeter set to Ohms check the reading across the leaft and centre pins in the coiklpack sockets, it should be 0.9 Ohms max.

You can also remove the plugs and examine for fouling, if a coilpack is very bad the attached plug will be fouled.

If all plugs are approximately similar then it's more likely the AFM causing the problem.

had the same problem with my previous 32. at about 4500-5000 rpm it would splutter and miss. even had it plugged onto a nissan fault finder and everything was ok. turned out to be the coilpacks.
check them as aitch has said and if their knackered you'll soon know.
if yours was a series 1 you could try a wasted spark set-up ( as they are cheaper than replacing the coils )
