  • 2.0EFi Lumpy at low revs

    My Maestro 2.0EFI is extremely lumpy when in low revs. I need to drive in a higher gear than what I should do just to make it driveable. Idling can also be lumpy, I intend to change both ECU's and the idle bypass valve, if that's not the solution what else could it be ?

    HT leads, rotor arm (or rotor arm loose in the bush). airflow meter need cleaning?

      Has new leads, dizzy cap, plugs but will check airflow meter, someone thinks it could be air bypass valve ?

        You can usually clean out the bypass valve as they can get gummed up with crud. Worth a try! Also check the rotor arm doesn't rotate on the cam (the bush often deteriorates).
