Evora Spluttering/miss Fire

18 posts in this topic

My evora seems to miss abd start a bit when driving, like the power goes then picks back up. More so when gear is change or going slow. Put on fault code reader abd nothing came up? Any ideas?

Apparently the throttle position connector can sometimes come loose by only a couple of mm. Disconnect and reconnect, it's the smallish black connector on the throttle body (between air box and intake manifold).

Yes as it makes and loses connection over bumps and engine movement. If it totally disconnects then the car goes into limp mode and you get warning codes.

 

 

It might not be your problem but I read about the problem on the lotustalk forum while researching buying my evora.

Did you completely take it off and re-connect as some people had the problem but dismissed it as the connector seemed attached.

 

Other thought is a bad batch of fuel.

I was gona suggest fuel, have you gone anywhere not your usual for fuel recently or it's possible bad batch of fuel like Chris says. If noting has come up, on mil lights on eclectic fault then unsure. Does yours have sport mode button? Is that working ok if it does?

I go lots of places for fuel, it started at the end of the day after 40 miles of running on same fuel. My client a mechanic disconnected it so looks to be done correctly but didn't fix it. He said its not a little misfire almost as though loss of poss for a second. Possibly electronic, but unsure as nothing came up on fault code reader.

If was electric fault relating to engine you would have an orange spanner show up continuously. If it's a minor electric fault spanner shows for 30secs then goes

Neither happens, I had a yellow spanner on for a few seconds about 2 months ago but nothing since. It's very strange. Any ideas who can fix it? No one near me as a) a clue or B) wants too

Unfortunately we don't have any main dealers around here.

 

I haven't heard of any other problems on the evora that have the symptoms you describe.

 

Could be a failing coil pack, but I'd expect the misfire to cause the engine warning light to be on and fault codes saved.

 

My guess is still the connector, as it's exactly the same symptoms.
