I am sorry no one has responded yet. I know you must be thinking " I have been taken or this is a scam" Neither is the case. Sometimes there are more questions than we can get to and we just keep getting farther and farther behind. Sometimes what a customer asks, no experts online are confident their answer will be good enough. Is there any more information you can add to your concern or is there another concern you may have that we could answer instead?

I have this problem only. Perhaps you need this additional information. I recently had replaced the variable timing pulley and solenoid, cam belt and some seals which caused the engine to be rowdy. That problem has been sorted. I did read some where that if parts are replaced, then the computer controller needs to be reset. I don't know how and where. Trust that this will assist further.

I see you are in South Africa. Is this an American model car?
