SIRION RALLY 2

Forum: 

Could anyone explain why my Rally2 goes like stink some days and not others.

Doesn't seem to be weather dependent.

If it were plugs then performance would be constant unless they are oiling up on low revs but I've not noticed any miss-fire.

However it has been difficult to make a smooth start without engine sounding as if it is about to stall without giving it more revs and slipping the clutch more than I would like.Also it is difficult to drive in slow moving traffic without some jerky throttle reponse

Perhaps this is just a peculiarity of the VVT engine and I must admit I've been driving diesels for many years and no accelerator is needed on take off and slow moving traffic.

Anyway I shall replace the plugs as a first step - has any one any preference of plugs.

Does the rev counter hunt on

Does the rev counter hunt on idle? Using more fuel than normal?

If so it sounds like the air flow sensor is possibly fowled up. You can clean these with carb cleaner, either that you need a replacement.

Don't like the new shape Sirion much.Sorry.

Check your Air Filter. Is it blocked?
Is it the correct one?
Some garages fit the Sirion 1300SL filter to the Rally 2/4 and it is not correct.
The Rally 2 and 4 have a free flow filter allowing more air to pass through to the engine.(Look in Images) I have put in some photo's of the different filters.
Jon is right as well of course.
Check the flow sensor.

Let us know what you find and how you go on?

Plugs - DENSO K20BR-S10
Or - NGK BKUR6ETB-10

I have had Diesels for may years until I went onto the Sirion.Bit confused to be honest.
Gas - Biting Point - Off you go!

My Diesels could set off without Gas, but I always put some on if only a little to make sure there was no chance of stalling - and in actual fact you strain the engine more setting off without some engine revs - if only a little.
Now I'm back on Petrol it is always
Gas- Biting Point - Off you go.

A quick test to see it its you or the car.Wink
Nice quiet road (Level) First gear - Set off nice and slow.
Remove all Gas. Car should pull along real slow nice and happily in first on tickover without any jumping or any problems at all.
If not - It needs looking at.

I leave the rest to you.
