The elise had been off the road since Mayday bank holiday . She had developed a missfire and had to be tralored home. A number of faults were possible causes as the cat warning light was comming on.
I switched the cat bypass pipe back on and Martin R came over and checked and replaced a few sensors but with no success. I had a couple of holidays planned in this country so i thought the car would have to wait till i had some spare cash.
I gave Mike from Sports car services a call a couple of weeks ago and he popped over with his fault reader but could not pinpoint the cause, so i managed to limp the car over to his garage for him to have a proper look. It turned out to be a combination of small faults. He replaced the coil packs, repaired a dry joint in the wiring loom and bypassed the misssfire protection system. She is now back home
So a big thanks to Mike and thanks to all those that gave advice when she limped onto the stand at the kit car show at Stonleigh in May.
Now i have got her back on the road, summer seems to have finished
