Low RPM Bobbing

1090 Views 7 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  Prof ozone
I have a 91 MR2 N/A when i am driving and I'm in a low RPM( under 1500rpm's) I experience a forward bobbing motion( I am not giving it any gas). I would describe it as someone putting their feet on the back your chair and slowly extending their legs and retracting them. It happens a lot in rush hour. It it rather annoying. My clutch is dead and my car is sitting motionless now. I plan to do a repair before Christmas. Things I'm thinking it may be: Warped Fly Wheel, Fuel Injectors, Oxygen Sensors or maybe something clutch related. I don't thing it is spark plug related because they are rather new. Any Ideas, please post.

No one knows???? Common someone has to know
i don't know about NA's..but for turbos...hesitation is usually caused by old ignition components....
I have same thing but at 2500-3000 RPM under load. I think it is gas filter or clogged cat:confused:
Interesting.... I know its not the fuel filter. It has less than 500 miles on it. so Ill investigate the cat
lol dude i have a n/a unless i saw somthing wrong my car did that when i first started driving the n/a dont really like to go below that rpm while driving so the car will start to do that
Hey..dont own an MR2..I have a Paseo..:)
But car when I'd start it up would hesitate upon acceleration before it wasn't warmed up..and kind of bucking motion. I replaced the O2 sensor and never had a problem since...try that..maybe.
I once put the throttle position sensor on a Nissan, on a little ascew and it caused the car to buck on under constant throttle. I went back and adjusted it and it drove normally after that. I believe your tps is different, but it could mean it's going bad.
