jmcsabre Posted July 13, 2017 Share Posted July 13, 2017 Hi all, this is My first post but I have found a lot of good info here so thanks to all for that. My Daughter purchased a 2005 OB XT and it has a problem. It seems to run great on the flat but as soon as you give it gas going up hill it starts to misfire and seems to go into limp mode. So far I have checked a few sensors, have checked and removed the Banjo bolts including the one behind the timing cover. Thanks for that thread! and there were none in the AVCS solenoids. Here's what is confusing Me. The oil between the turbo banjo and the oil solenoid on the right side was black, but the turbo and timing cover banjo were both clean. As is the rest of the oil. I tested the solenoid and it works. I removed the turbo which is fine but has a little play, so I'm looking for a replacement cartridge for that, and I removed the pre catalyser from the up pipe which was also intact, but may have been blocked. The car has over 200,000 on it, but was obviously well cared for. I am thinking of getting a Tactrix cable but they are a bit pricey and we are not into tuning at all, it's just a daily driver. I am going to check the timing, but it's the dirty oil which confounds Me. Sorry for the lengthy discription, but does anyone have any ideas as to what is going on with this car. Thanks in advance!
