Z22XE hesitates at full throttle
« on: 07 July 2019, 20:03:10 »

I have ignored this for a long time but its soon 3 weeks of vacation and time to give some love to the car.
Some days the car hesitates at full throttle and the next day it's all fine. Very annoying because i'm towing a trailer a lot during the summer and need all the power it should have.

No fault codes. I have limited access to live data. I suspect that the o2 sensors are becoming slow to regulate. There is also no difference when i unplug the maf. No engine light and it still runs smooth at idle.

The coil and spark plugs where new last autumn and the valve cover gasket this spring. No oil on the plugs when i checked today. Cleaned the throttle body a couple of months ago too.  Fuel filter and fuel pump was replaced just before i bought it.

Sounds like a sticky throttle plate, but... When was the fuel filter last changed?

Also the thinner of the two breather hoses turns to a gooey mess. If it has the consistency of blutac, then change it and report back  :y

The two breather hoses are new because the previous owner could not figure out why the car was erratic. I replaced the coil right after i bought it and solved it. As mentioned he also replaced the fuel pump and the filter right before i bought it.
