re. ragged running on low revs.
i had a similar problem on my laggy1(1.8/2.0 8v) when i bought it. i chucked on a ECO-TEK thingy which basicly consists of a variable set sprung air bleed valve which bleeds air into the inlet manifold via the manifold-master brake servo pipe. suposedly it disrupts the air flow (creates turbulance) in the manifold.
before i fitted it, i suffered hesitation, poor idle, flat spots between 1500-2500. after fitting it ran much better with no problems, except it is running leaner, so is slightly hotter on the temps.
i have no idea if it works ok on a laggy2 1.8-2.0 16v
i've just had LPG fitted so am not looking to make more problems.
other than that i suggest you clean the
and make sure its not got any
breather pipes blocked.
as a hint, dont fit gas shocks on the car unless you want a harder ride, it was very nice and smooth on
shocks, but i think it might have been a mistake to chuck on the gas ones.
