Question about 1983 Ford Escort Gt
I have turbo conversion from 1995 on a CVH engine with single downdraft Weber carb.
Just recently, when the engine has warmed up (typically after a short motorway run) when I get into city traffic, I get backfiring on the overrun and then the engine will just die whenever I put my foot on the clutch (e.g. changing down coming to a roundabout or in traffic queues). I have to heel and toe to keep up revs or the engine keeps dying (no idle). If allowed to cool down the engine usually returns to normal idle and two garages have failed to find any problem - cleaned carb, reset jets, changed airfilter etc, but problem recurs in same conditions. Makes driving in traffic a nightmare. Anyone any ideas what the problem might be (others have suggested air leaks, but no idea where to look)?
