[DML] RE: Strange acceleration problem



 
 
Just, thinking out loud hear...
 
If it were true that the "partially clogged fuel filter" was leaning out  the 
mixture, then why:
 
1) Doesn't the lambda system compensate for this? 
(Because the Lambda system doesn't work unless the engine is already warmed  
up??)
 
2) Why wouldn't the "partially clogged fuel filter" cause problems at high  
speeds when more fuel is needed?
 
Hey wait a minute I do have some missing at high speeds, I think I'll just  
change the filter and report back to the group...

Anyway,  if we assume that the fuel filter is partially clogged your car 
would be  running leaner due to impared fuel delivery. It would possibly run 
okay  when warm, but since the car NEEDS a richer mixture when cold, and 
can't  get it due to the clogged filter, the filter coiuld cause symptoms 
only  when cold. If it gets progressivley worse, eventually it would cause  
problems even when the engine is warm.
