PostSubject: HELP NEEDED PLEASE !!   6th December 2011, 16:34

Hi all,

I fitted a GTT Intercooler today and now the car won't idle !!!. I used there boots and clamps and checked and re fitted time and again to make sure i had no leaks but still it cuts out. I then tryed with the origainal boots and still the same. I then re fitted the stock intercooler and still cuts out. Pluged in a fult reader and it was clear and i also had no dash lights on eather. Took it for a run still didnt clear and as i got home the management lights have come on. PLEASE HELP IM GOING MAD !!

Could the new cooler, have pressed down on the HT leads??

If they were on there way out, this could have been the straw that broke the camels back??

Does someone have a set you could borrow?

Check you didn't knock the map sensor mounted just in front of the intercooler as if damaged or not connected properly this would affect the idle .

Yep checked that and seems fine. Just thinking maybe when i fitted the GT and closed the bonnet i could have possibley pressed down on the coil pack but i would have thought id have a missfire if damaged ?

I would have thought if there was a problem with the coil you would have a misfire as well as idle problem too . Did you check injecter connections under the intercooler to see if anything has come loose .

Well thats what i thought but a mechanic friend and me have been all over it and can't find a leak. I didnt bother with the diverters i just fitted the screws banck in to it. I havent got a pic as i have re fitted the stock ic. Did you move your coil pack on yours ?.

yeh i moved it back. the intercooler should of come with a plate what you put under the coil pack to move it back. but the leads are still quite tight. I would use the airdiverters because they help to get the airflow to the top of the intercooler and helps to spread the air.
