Mark :

Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will try help you with this.

Mark :

When the engine cuts out how long does it take before it will restart?

Customer:

it statrs again immediately but then cuts again straight away

Mark :

I would say the first thing you need to check is the throttlebody. Make sure it is clean and moves freely.

Customer:

Ok then if that is alright what do you think it could otherwise be?

Mark :

After that you should check for any air leaks, split vacuum hoses etc.

Mark :

When the engine starts, does it keep going if he keeps his foot on the throttle?

Customer:

Do you think the Idler could have anything to do with it?

Mark :

That is part of the throttlebody I suggested at first.

Mark :

If it is dirty or sticking it will affect tickover.

Customer:

Yes the engine still goes with foot on throttle but stops as soon as he takes his foot off

Mark :

First thing is to check throttlebody.

Customer:

Ok Thank you very much . It seems that it is not a major problem

Mark :

I don't think it will be major.

Mark :

Just a bit of maintenance.

Customer:

Thank you very much for your help. I will pass this info on to my grandson.

Mark :

No problem.
