Yeah, mine's a 4, but the car in the video and the two others with this problem in our EURO-NECO Germany club are 2.5L V6. I mentioned to them that there's a TB hang problem and fix out there, but not being really familiar with the 6, I wasn't sure if that was the correct cause and correction for their symptom. Glad to see I may have been on to something.Originally posted by: slockin
Edit: I just noticed you have a 4 banger. I'm not sure if they suffer from moosing too. Hope this helps... -Nick
Yep - on a cold engine, and only when the throttle is CLOSED. Notice if you open up the throttle, it goes away. That's because then your car's breathing through the throttle instead of the IACV.Originally posted by: Cls2Edg
Does it only happen at start up?
It may, but probably only if it's full of gunk, not the other way around. That's your idle air hole (I believe) and it's supposed to let a metered amound of air through the TB when your butterfly is completely shut. I shaved off a bit of my butterfly around the edge and it idles about 50rpm higher now.Just a random thing I noticed - when I did the TB optimization, I noticed the butterfly has a very small hole in it. I bought a 3L TB (which I haven't installed yet), which I also did the TB optimaztion to... that little hole was plugged full of gunk. I wonder if that also contributes to the moosing noise.
