Keep an eye on the new cable for some time. You dont want to get caught with pants down again. How much for this impromptu fix?Now switching to a new cable is more on the softer side compare to the 1st cable. Check & adjust to my specific already. Will test more and check is there still any problems.
Does your car consume engine oil? If not, get the tappets adjusted. It wont rob it of power. In fact, when properly adjusted, you get better performance. While you are at it, check your engine's base timing hasnt been fiddled before.I had ask the mechanic but he didn't recommend me to adjust the teppet.
He say the car all running fine from his experience. If really one to adjust he say will have some power lost.
