Customer Question

Hello can you help me with a problem with a 1998 snorkel tb-37. When the engine runs it continually revs up and then back down to idle. This happens the entire time the lift is running. It is a pretty fast cycle, rev, rev, rev. Probably 3 rev cycles in a 4-5 seconds. My cell is(###) ###-#### Steve Boyle

What kind of engine is in your lift?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
It is a Ford 4 cylinder model vsg413i6005a
Engine code P89bf6005be. Does this help?
Expert:  Bradley Martin replied 5 months ago.

Yes that helps sounds like the engine either has a vacuum leak or the timing is off a little. Have you tried adjusting the distributor by turning it one way or the other to get it to smooth out.

It doesn't have a distributor.
Expert:  Bradley Martin replied 5 months ago.

Does this model have coil packs? The VSG I am thought it had has a distributor.
