I have replaced the coolant temp sensor,manifold vacuum sensor,manifold air temp sensor,engine throttle and fuel pump all to no avail!Is it possible to interogate the computer as the engine feels like it has too much ignition advance bellow 2000 revs but too retarded above 3000 revs and fuel consumption is only respectable between 2 and 3000 revs?
