Engine Keeps Cutting Out


Recommended Posts

Hi all, I am new to the forum although I have been reading posts for several days now, as I am having issues with my TTE supercharger,

Every time I try to rev the car with the cable attached to the supercharger the car just dies, (it is fine as soon a s I disconnect the cable) I have read the posts on the forum and presumed it to be the black box, great I thought I will purchase an HKS FCD and problem solved however when I went to check how hard it would be to fit I found that the car already has an HKS FCD fitted, now this is where I need help as no-body has seemed to have this problem with an HKS FCD already fitted.

The guy who I bought the car off has told me if there is too much tension on the supercharger cable this would cause the same problem is this correct?

Is anyone able to offer advice or let me know if it is possible to test the FCD to see if it operating correctly or knackered

Any help will be greatly appreciated

If you need any more information please let me know

Thanks in advance

Matt

Welcome to the club matey :D

From what i've read on here, if the S/C cable is too tight it does cause problems with the bypass and you have to have a bit of slack in the cable? But not 100% sure :unsure:

Hopefully one of the guys with an S/C will be along soon to help point in the right direction :)

Thanks for your input, hopefully will get some clarification soon

yep thats correct, although i don't know if it would cause the engine to cut out with the cable being too tight?? how long have you had the problem?? if the car was running right when u first had it and you haven't touvched the bypass cable, then its unlikely to be that that's causing the problem??

Had it nearly 2 years, the guy I bought it off has said it did the same to him when he first bought it but he slackened the cable off a little and that cured the problem apparently!! however I thought it felt a little under powered, then the spring snapped which pulls the cable back at the supercharger end on me, I replaced the cable and spring and now every time I rev the engine hard it just dies. Very frustrating but still drives like a new car without the cable attached at all!!

Please help

You've had the car 2 years and only just joined :ohmy: shame on you :whistling::lol: only messing matey hope you get it sorted, sounds like your cable is too tight after you changed it, however I can only dream of having a supercharger at the mo so can't really comment. :) Welcome to LOC.

I am ashamed at the length of time taken to join you guys but as they say better late than never!!

Hmm does sound like it may be the cable too tight, shuts the bypass too early and puts strain on the throttle itself.

we need a pic first really,

Did you get the replacements from TTE?

And some p[ics of your car as well.

Hi, I work for a motorfactors so made a replacement cable and it was the long thin spring which snapped so just used one I had laying around :blush: I will put some images up later, car needs a good clean at the minute but will pop some pics up of that too later

The good news is the car is no longer cutting out!! I have slackened the cable off and that has seemed to work!

I have emailed TTE this morning regarding the spring for the bypass valve.

I am still just not certain it is producing all the power it should, It feels more responsive but it does not take off as I expected it to. What sort of power should the car be producing?

Should be about 200bhp. have you checked the belt is tight?

stav

Belt is very tight and doesnt sound like its slipping, apart from obvious rolling road is there any easy way to tell if the supercharger is doing the business or is there anything else I should inspect?
