    Default Acceleration Issue-Civic VTI

    Guys


    I have been facing the issue for the past couple of weeks, there is a lag between the time when i press the accelarator and the time the car reacts to it...i press the accelerator and the car takes atleast 4-5 secs to react to it... the over all pick of the car is also down and it feels very heavy, feels as if the car has load of 10 ppl this happens with all the gears not in a specific gear.The cars details are below:


    Civic VTI
    Manual 2004
    Petrol, No CNG,
    All stock except 4 tip spark plugs





    Pleeeeease help......
    Its a City n i Love it coz its my ride

    TPS settings needed. Just ask a nice mechanic to clean your TPS and you're good to go.

    Don't let any CNG mechanic touch your Throttle Body.

    Dear Please dont' go for TPS setting, it can't be adjusted, rather mostly technicians damage the whole Throttle body in this try.


    However, if you feel the delayed response by the vehicle then better to check its Fuel Pump. In these models, the fuel pump and fuel filter are very delicate. Most of the times, when the vehicle is driven with less fuel in the fuel tank, it suck the bottom dust particles. Those particles restricts the flow of fuel through pump and the allied filter.


    Even before going for this whole diagnosis, ask technician to disengage the Fuel main line from the Main fuel line gallery (injector's gallery); then simply switch the ignition switch ON (don't start the engine, just ignition switch ON), the flow of Fuel from that pipe, its intensity / throw will decide the condition of the PUMP.


    Since, i have seen its internal configuration therefore, i am confident too much otherwise, Vti,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,don't obey you to be # 1, it is like an abuse for racing lovers !





    Best of Luck and bye for now

    fuel pump can't be the reason! as in m having the same problem with my exi 2004... but m facing this problem on cng and only on ac... its like when i turn on ac the throttle response is a bit delayed... i have done TPS and throttle cleaning but still the problem is there. today cng mechanic told me to change your car's advancer and the problem will vanish! hope it vanishes coz it feels very sticky when throttle responses after 4-5 seconds...
