Can you please post this to the SE-R group?
I have a 1991, NX, 1.6 liter which I purchased new here in Kaiserslautern.
It was built during Feb 1991. I have been the only owner.
I have 215,000 miles on the car. I purchased it I June of 1991 at the Auto
Exchange, Kaiserslautern, Germany. They sell U.S. Spec vehicles to members
of the U. S. Forces.
Not long ago, July 2007, I had installed a Low Inertia Flywheel, High
Performance Pressure Plate, Clutch disc and Hotshot header. I also had a
Borsal louvered exhaust/muffler installed and there are no leaks I can find.
Car sounds great, has much better pick and slow down times. Gas mileage is
about 33 miles per gallon so far with this problem.
I noticed that once the engine warmed up I found a problem. I did notice
much while the engine was cold, but as the motor reached running temperature
I experienced a hesitation in the engine.
It idles just fine and the better performance is noticeable when giving it
more gas. And when I remove my foot from the gas pedal it decelerates just
The problem I have is when I try to maintain speed. FYI: I drive on the
autobahn almost every day. It then hesitates, shudders, you get that back
and forth stutter.
Has anyone experienced this problem?
I have thought it might be a leak in one of the intake sections, or perhaps
the ECU might have gone bad. They did some welding on the vehicle and I
know they did not disconnect the battery, the radio worked when I picked it
up, I have tried regular and super gas, no difference. I also changed the
distributor, rotor, plug wires and spark plugs.
I intend to put a 2.0 liter DET into it when I get back to the states, but
that might be at least 6 months to a year.
I would appreciate any and all recommendations/ suggestions.
Thanks for letting me air this problem
