trd altezza

Recommended Posts

i got the turbo rebuilt on the altezza because the oil seals where gone and it was pushing oil on to the air filter.when we started the car it was idling rough and it sorted it self out but when you rev the car it has gone in to limp mode it would only rev to 4,000rpm.

we took the throttle bodie off and found there was loads of oil sitting in the intake manifold that was cleaned out and the throttle bodie put back on.

it was started up and it just hit the limiter which was real scary what do i do?how did the oil get in the intake manifold?and do i just buy a new throttle bodie?

does the altezza ecu go in to limp mode when the engine management light comes on?im running a HKS f-con btw.

the ecu on the tezz has a safety feature wich will stop the car over reving as it detects a fault wich is common on a lot of problems iv had this and got a link up ,told me everything what was going on and easy enough to fix , scott

so what do i do then?

Check that you don't have an air leak between the throttle body and the manifold, that could cause air to get past the throttle butterfly. Also check cable adjustment, throttle stops, vacuum pipes and that the butterfly is free and closes fully.
