Engine Troubles
« on: January 16, 2015, 01:50:48 pm »
My Ape is still surviving but occasionally the check engine light appears and the engine seems to lose power for a couple of seconds and then returns to normal while the check engine light persists for about a day or so before turning off.  The first time it happened I got it checked out and was told that the uniair actuator was stuck but fixed itself so not to worry but this problem crops up every couple of months so do you think something is needing to get repaired or just leave it be?

    I am afraid I can't help you here as this is the first I have heard of such a fault and certainly hasn't occurred on my car. Hopefully someone with more knowledge can help you out :thumb:

    I've had same problem on my APE. Don't leave it, get it checked. They plugged mine into diagnostic and found it was a misfire on no 1. Swapped it with no 4 and no probs since.., although I am waiting for it. The light comes on when it's registered a few times that there is a misfire. Then light then goes out after keying off and on again. Hope it helps.
