Problem post.....me again.....
1992 6VD1 3.2 LTR petrol.
Running on 95 unleaded
just replaced clutch slave and master and bypassed the damper.
new plugs
Oil filter, fuel and air filters changed about 800kms ago
Driving home from work today and my speedo died and check engine light comes on (normally happens, I just pull over and turn the car off for 30 seconds and she runs run again, speedo works engine light goes) this time I had to drive for about 500 metres so I could pull over but this time the car felt like it wanted to stall out as I rounded a round about then finally stalled out as I pulled in. I switched the car off then then started it again as per usual but this time she ran rough jumping between 600-1200 RPM, I switched it off again and waited a little longer (about a minute) started it again and she ran fine as it normally would.
Sequence of events.
-Speedo died (rest of the dash worked)
-Drove about 200 metres then engine light came on
-Drove another 300 metres, started to feel a stall then stalled about 10 seconds later.
-started it again and car ran rough as guts with an uneven idle.
-switched off then waited about a minute then ran like a dream.
I'm thinking this might be a sensor issue of some kind but unsure any help appreciated.
