Hi i own a 1996 35th Anniversary edition SPI Mini (Manual) imported from Japan.
My problems are:
1. While driving, sometimes the engine stalls when the clutch is engaged. I have owned the car for about 2 years and it was there even when i bought it but it occurred very rarely.
2. Recently it started that sometimes engine doesn't rev instantly at the start of acceleration. This happens in any gear when you start moving or while moving. The car jumps forward suddenly about a few seconds after pressing on the accelerator. As if some force has been holding the car from moving and released suddenly. I'm not an expert but it seems like the petrol gets accumulated inside the cylinders for few seconds and it all burns suddenly - like a delay in the spark..
3. Also recently - Fluctuating RPM at idle
About an year ago engine got over heated couple of times due to the radiator electric fan failure. Even then the car was working fine until recently when the engine started misfiring a lot. After which the engine head was repaired (Head refacing, valve refacing, valve seat repair, valve guide replacement, head gasket replacement). Also found out that there is a slight play in one of the pistons while the head was removed but it was not repaired for the moment. Got the wiring checked as well. Relay for engine management was repaired and there were few earth problems which were rectified.
After these repairs the car was working fine for one day and it all started happening again the next day except heavy misfiring... engine stalls when the clutch is engaged, RPM fluctuating at idle and the engine doesn't rev/move as you start accelerating.
Has anyone here faced similar problems? Any advise is deeply appreciated..
