      2017 EMail Issues - Post Upgrade   23/01/17

      Hi,   Following a successful upgrade of our old code; being out of support we had to upgrade, we've encountered an unforeseen in preview and testing issue with our production email.   This means that email isn't sending as well as it should. You might ask for the email and we might send it, it also might get blocked by your ISP. Btinternet, AOL and Yahoo are well known for blocking.   We're working on it and I hope to have an solution working shortly.    Out of all that could of gone wrong, this isn't the worst case   As to other issues and 'change' as I said, it's forced upon us. To not change is irresponsible. More updates to follow once we're past our initial snag list.   There's only one working on it though; me, so please be patient, read the support topics, spend a few minutes, it's not that different once you get over the shock.   Cheers,   Colin   Snag List Topic >>

too lean could be a VAC leak. IE unmetered air being drawn into the engine. AS your engine is non turbo you need to check all the inlet pipes after the MAF for signs of leak. if you spray carb cleaneraround the inlet pipes with the engine at idle you will hear the engine note pickup when you spray near a leak. (only needs a small amount though, don't go soaking the pipes as it should be easily noticed) HTH

Try clamping off the breather pipe where it goes into the inlet pipe and see if it alters. Depends on which 1..6 it is but I have seen the valve on the breather system fail and it sucks to much into the inlet so the ECU leans off the mixture.
