    Hi guys,

    Was wondering if any of you gurus could help me out with my problem.:hmmmm:

    I'm currently driving an Wira sedan 1.5 auto, year 2000.
    When I'm in Neutral(N) d engine rev is @ about 1K which I feel is normal.
    But when I put it in Drive(D) or Reverse(R), d rev goes below 500.
    I've tried servicing the TB but d problem still re-occurs constantly.:mad:

    Recently, it has become so bad that the car sometimes even stalls wen I'm reversing my car or accelerate out of a junction.
    I'm afraid I might get into an accident sooner or later if this keeps on happening.

    Do any of u sifus have any idea on whats goin on or how 2 remedy it?
    Pls help..

    Btw, the only aftermarket part I've put in is an open type K&N air filter.

    If any1 else has any other suggestions, feel free to let me know.

    bro, just wondering whether you have sent your car to proton service centre to rectify the 1st problem before the new one (honk and engine die off) appeared or it happen after you have sent your car to them?

    please update because i never heard of this kind of problem before.

    :hmmmm::smokin::smokin:
