I've herd from a friend that you can run a test on your ECU to find faults within the system, he said it's very simple and is done with a paperclip. Does anyone have anymore information on it, links etc... as i'm very keen to try it out.:)

Check the stickies in the Car Chat section, I posted a link to the TopBuzz website which has all the info you need on it.
If you get stuck let me know and I'll try and help you out.

my engine management light comes on for short amount of times when the car is acting dodgey, would the papaerclip test still diagnose the problem even if the light isnt constantly on? :confused:

i have an idea what the fault is, but id liek to be sure before spending my cash

Yes, it will remember all of the fault codes. I had that problem with my car

I read somewhere that it only logs them if they are on for 10 mins...
I dont think thats the case mine went off after about 2 minutes and they were still able to read it.

Junior Bear, when you said its acting strangely, is the acceleration smooth or is it really jumpy ? If its really jumpy as molak said I would say its the air flow meter, or the idle stepper motor.
