Default Proton Wira - Engine Warning lights up!

I need some advice before spending big $$$ on repairs.

I bought a Proton Wira 1.5GL Aeroback (Export Edition) Manual Transmission back in 2002. Everything was fine till I did a major service (60K) on the car mid last year. Since then, lots and lots of engine idling problems, plus my worst nightmare, the engine warning lights up and never goes off.

Went to many Proton Edar service centres and did engine mgt diagnostics (each time they did that I have to pay RM80!) but still the engine warning comes on.

They checked all the sensors, check the parts that went in during that major service, did this did that..... still no help.

They told me that it could be the ECU problem, which will cost 3k+++. Another said it could be grounding problem, but they could not fix it.

The car jerks especially on low rpm (below 2,000) when pushed hard. Also lack of power as compared to before the problem starts.

I'm comtemplating to sell this car should the problem could not be rectified.

Would appreciate valuable feedbacks from you guys.

Thanks in advance.

Ure symptoms related to throttle body and not E.C.U, get ure throttle body serviced.

Tips;
- Drive into workshop and tell the throttle body servicing. If u tell that ure car is jerking and u dunno why, they will push high the price because u dunno, please be aware.

I changed my throttle body to 1.5i last year which costs about MYR200.00+ which taken from 1/2cuts. I was using my car without proper air filter and my throttle body died ..

Cheers!

Hi Sakuraguy

Thanks for your feedback. Since you mentioned without proper filter, I am using K&N replacement filter since Day 1. Haven't clean or replace filter. Could that be the problem???

Will take the car to Proton Edar service centre after CNY to have the throttle body checked.
