Running poorly for a while now:

Starts up just fine. FI light comes on. Fuel pump whines. Idles o.k.

First pull on the throttle at first gear she stutters and sputters like she's trying to catch. And jinking the clutch and throttle a little, she smooths out.

Shifting to second it happens again. Stutters and surges (that part's fun). A little monkeying with the clutch & throttle and she makes it thru to the next gear.

Where it happens again....and again...and again...

In fifth @ 70 mph she seems to smooth out, but will occasionally loose her forward momentum..Off the throttle and back on & she gets her groove back.

Things I've checked: battery, ECU, new plugs, no crimped fuel lines, newly cleaned air filter, a couple of bottles of Seafoam in half a dozen tanks from a new sources of gas.

Thoughts?

You don’t need a new fuel pump.

Glad to oblige. :thumbup:

I’m guessing the problem is electronic in nature, and Hans will be along shortly to give you some expert guidance.


Edit - oops, I see Hans got here while I was typing out my answer. Good job.
