HOW TO: Diagnose and fix that rough idle

Ok, some thoughts and tips on the painful and elusive yet generally simple to fix problem of a rough as guts idle which makes your baby seem like the rusted out old crapbox that we all know it is not. I am attempting to explain the circumstances at engine idle, the systems used to make it work and some simple yet effective methods of getting yourself out of trouble. Please anyone feel free to correct me on any misinformation I may accidentally put down here.

Engines as many of us will know can be set up (mostly through valve timing) to be more efficient at different ranges of RPM's, the most ideal situation would be a motor moving at extremely low RPM with none of the adverse effects of high speed operation (but none of the benefits either) in which case the valve timing can be set to optimize low speed operation. This is however not the case for domestic vehicles and in order to get any power with some degree of economy we need to optimize a certain higher RPM range, this is generally NOT the idle speeds. To counter the problems of idle, being that low air velocity makes the fuel and air not mix properly, engine manufacturers generally (and still to this day) make the idle mixture rich. The other problem needed to counter is that the spark is generally weaker at idle RPM and the fuel more difficult to ignite due to its poor mixing. There are many systems on both new and old cars used to counter these effects, vacuum and centrifugal advance in the distributer and idle circuits in the carbie.

Shattered!!!

Just a little story that made me go "damn what a waste". My old man is a copper down here in melb, and I was at the station with him the other day picking some stuff up and I noticed an engine sitting in the lock up bay where they store all the confiscated good from crims, at closer inspection it was a fuel injected 5lt Holden engine. So I hinted to Dad at the possibility of sneaking it in the back of the 4WD and was soon informed that it has to be destroyed no questions asked, absolutely shattered, perfectly good engine going to the junkyard to be destroyed.

cheers

Latest Images of the GTR-X

Hi guys, we've got a few very recent images of the GTR-X on autoRemedy at http://www.autoremed... , one of kiks mates got the car in to do some work on I think and so snapped some pictures while he could (afterall it's not every day you get a prototype showing up on your doorstep) ;)

Anyway, they are never before seen images (since a fellow member took them early last month) so it's wor
