MG MGF Technical - AUTOMATIC CHOKE
|does the mgf have an automatic choke can they stick close or open what are the symptoms if is not working right ....|
thanks guys and girls
to all you mgf owners happy driving
is there any meets happening soon around the milton keynes area cheers
|No choke as such but the injection system enrichens the mix when cold based on various temp sensors fitted to the engine - no doubt the real experts will be along soon!|
|As Tony says - no automatic choke. The Idle Air Control Valve controls the air intake (which works a little bit like a conventional choke in so far as it allows more air into the system to control idle speed), and there is a cold start ignition and fuelling map in the ECU.|
|Yep, if you are running a higher idle RPM even with the engine hot then you probebly need to clean the brown sensor wiring (spray contact cleaner on the plugh and socket and plug/unplug a few times) If this does not cure the problem then a new brown sensor is required.|
wheres the socket on the car sorry for being a novice
is it at the back where should i be looking ???
