Stagea Stalling?


Recommended Posts

Gday all

been driving my missus 1996 RS4 Auto Stagea

and at random times when i'm slowing to a stop the revs die and the car stalls

it's recently been serviced engine is completely stock

but has been filled with just plain unleaded fuel (unsure if that matters)

any insight would be greatly appreciated

when i first got my 33 my boss shouted me fuel but his fuel card only worked at the shitty servo with normal 91 and premium 95 or something, and even on the 95 stuff whenever i came to the traffic lights or a stop sign revs would drop to 100-200 and nearly stall, id hate to think how it would run on 91, this is with the stock ecu too btw. now with any 98RON fuel she runs fine never drops under 5-600 rpm

i would head over to the stagea section on here there is a few threads about stageas stalling aswell as all the possiblities it could be. Personally i know a few who are running their stag's on normal fuel and have never had an issue.

Stageas stalling is common to an extent and most seem to be able to fix it rather easily....have you checked the filters and fuel filter.. they maybe blocked or dirty? your afm?

but like i said head the stagea section and you find how people fix them or determined what was going on..

Good luck!

Sounds like your AFM

had the same prob with my stagea and R33

change out the AFM and see if that fixes it

you could probebly borrow one, only takes about 5mins, will be able to confirm befor spending money at workshops

Usually caused by fault Air Flow Meter or Aftermarket Blow Off Valve.

Both are easy to fix, the AFM is the easiest and cheapest to test, you can borrow somebody elses, will only take 15 minutes, if no difference then it's probably related to the blow off valve. Aftermarket blow off valves that vent to the atmosphere (instead of recirculating) will cause most skylines/stageas to stall.

Also as a quick (temp) fix you can unscrew your AAC valve a little (it's a small screw on the intake plenum) this will raise the idling RPM and should make it a little harder to stall (will probably use a bit more fuel and have a less steady idle though).

    • Been slowly chipping away at it when I've got time. Tried to get the box in with the converter but worked out that the flexplate isn't the correct thickness and the converter pulls out off the pump too much (about 8mm). The flexplate for some reason was setup to use the secondary holes on the converter which had a press in nut to bolt to. I worked with Adamat performance the guys who manufacture the kits and they revised the design and made it suit the factory converter holes and milled up a new one for me and is currently on its way over. Can see the differences between the two compared to the orignal design which is in the post above. Once that's here the box can go in for good. I dummy'd it back up to get tailshaft length and is currently with Hardy Spicer to sort that out. Unfortunately won't get it back until late Jan Have been working in the boot lately getting it all a bit nicer and useable. Painted it with sound deadener and cut out a new boot floor from 18mm MDF so I can put a pram or my tool bag in the back. Have marine carpet coming to stick onto that and then also cut a piece to cover the battery. Once ive stuck the carpet in and all cleaned up ill pop the fuel system back in. Need to order 2 new Walbro 525s to replace the 3x 460s. Should be enough fuel for the new setup and run a bit cooler as well having more volume in the surge tank and less heat.  Have also ordered some sound deadener to put under the carpet. That should be here next week and I'll start putting it down on the floor, doors and roof. Hoping all this effort will make it a nice streeter with ability to daily if I want to.
