Acceleration and headlight
Posted 24 January 2005 - 07:31 PM
This is a funny problem really, it comes and goes.
One of the problems is that when im accelerating the car starts jerking like it does when your in the wrong gear but its not as bad its just small jerks but it does it. Another problem i keep having is that when i put my foot down the engine tone goes deeper but acceleration does not happen, it just carrys on going at the same speed.
Anyone got any ideas why?
I have recently bought some crystal halogen headlights, i was wondering if there was any tips on fitting them and is there any easy way of aligning them at home.

As for the headlights, they should be a straight swap, but if you have a wall or garage door you can point you car at, switch the headlights on ( dipped beam ) and mark the light pattern on the wall/garage.. then insert new headlights, if yours crystals don't have a pattern you will have to get the majority of the light beam below the pattern line left by the original lights..

Hows the points and condenser as this caused my car to stutter and jerk before it packed in completely.

Thanks for the help on the headlights, will do my best, left side one is blown so lets hope its a straight swap.
Ill check my points and condenser got about 3 points spare and 4 condensers LOL! wonderfull box of wonder off my friend, £20 and there was loads!
Does the coil ever need replacing after awhile, i think its the original one still.

What is it like with the choke fully or half on and accelerating? I have to play around with the choke whilst driving the first 10 miles or so especially going up hills.
Sorry, I can't tell you if it is running too rich or too lean as I am on a learning curve about these sort of things.
