Car starts surging after short drive.

345

Asked by Mar 02, 2013 at 08:49 AM about the 1987 Toyota MR2 STD Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So after running sea foam a couple weeks back my car started this new thing where after a short drive when I come to a
complete stop, then try to take off again it won't get gas right and will start kind of surging. It idles perfectly, there are no
vacuum leaks, i just changed the coil pack and the spark plugs.

Sounds to me like a problem with your emissions controls. Read the trouble codes to find a bad sensor or two, and possible O2 sensor.

"sea foam" what in the engine?...as coolant? badness?

^In the vacuum line. Had used it in a couple other cars before with a good turn out. What should i use to read the codes? Car has OBD1.

code reader from your corner greasemonkey, a fifth of whiskey may speed up the process-
