Follow up on my previously posted
problem with a rough bumpy idle
which eluded the auto mechanic
and diagnostic equipment.
The 'camshaft adjuster magnet'
was replaced (located at front of engine).
It no longer bumps and surges
on one cylinder while idling
(although there is slight sublime
turbulence persisting in idle.
I added injector cleaner to tank
and hopefully that will diminish or
end that.

The part that was replaced was the camshaft adjuster, I feel sure.

I have seen where they can stick at times. When this happens, it leaves the intake cam in a slightly advanced position. To replace is a Pro-only job.
