So i'm new here, and i'm portuguese, so my english is a litle rusty.
My problem is the bad engine start no matter if engine is cold or hot, in the beggining, i my tought were the heat plugs, in fact 3 were burned. I changed them and the engine starts litle more fast, but it continues taking too much time to start when compared with a 136bhp engine. The ECU, doesn't show any error. After start the engine, the car runs good, no problem in speed and acceleration. For the InspectionI still about 9000 miles. Is not all, when the mechanic removed de intake, i noted that was missing 1 of the wonderfull buterflies, the mechanic found and remove her, but still missing the bolts and the shaft, could this missing parts still damage the engine? For safety, the other butterflies were removed.
140mph is the max speed of my car?
Sorry for my poor english!!
Who has an idea to solve my problem, and after all must be more people with the same problem, answer to this thread.
The butterfly parts probably need to be replaced. As to the heat plugs, are you sure the wiring and other circuit parts are good? I think you may want to find out how the bad plugs got burnt. As to top speed, I believe that model reaches little, if any more than 140 mph on a track.
