Good morning all, I am wondering if anyone knows if there is a tracker fit kit that works with the factory Terracan roof rails. Since the tracker system is discontinued finding information or a drawing of the parts has proved very difficult. Thule recommends a system that doesn't work with the factory racks so I don't have a lot of confidence in any other recommendations they might have for this car.
I am having the same random hard starting issues that I have heard described often. The problem only occurs when hot and sounds like a no fuel condition when the engine is cranking. There is plenty of fuel and I use the primer bulb to refill the filters to make sure there is fuel available at the pump. I suspect there is an electrical glitch or control circuit issue that is keeping the ECM from firing the injectors. When the engine is cranked it sounds like it is spinning way to fast without any resistance, like trying to clear a flooded condition on a gasoline motor by keeping the throttle full open while cranking.
I have inspected the harness and cleaned all the connections. I suspect the Crank pulse sensor has an intermittent problem but haven't been able to catch it. My scan tool won't communicate with the ECM and the dealers here in Chile believe that they can charge Ferrari prices because they wear while coveralls, drink espresso, and mop the floors in the service bays.
My meter is in the car for the next instance.
Thanks for the info on the timing belt and tentioners. I am going to the parts store right now, that is if I can find my way there. I have the records from all the past owners and don't see the belts or pulleys being changed. I put all new filters and fluids but haven't done much else. Is the serpentine belt the actual timing belt ,or is there a timing chain or gear set under the front cover? If that's what keeps the cam in sync with the crank I would think the loss of the belt would be disastrous.
I have owner the car 6 months and am enjoying it. I only wish there was a way to get it to make power before 1800 RPM makes for some slow starts and painfully slow recoveries on the speed bumps that litter the streets of Santiago.
Thanks in advance for all your help.
