    C20XE Issue?

    Hi all,

    My next door neighbour has non-stop issues with his cars recently.

    He purchased a Cav 2.0 a while back but ended up requiring a new engine. He picked up a new C20XE to replace the old one and its running.

    But, its idle speed is 2000 rpm, and it hesitates like a bitch at low revs, and when you give it a little, it pops.

    He has to stick his foot down to get it moving.

    He had a diagnostic and they said its the HALL Sensor? Which I've never heard of.

    I wasn't expecting the Pop, which scared the crap out of me.

    The Hall sensor is part of the electronic ignition distributor - if the diagnostic showed that then replace it, the ignition timimg will be all to pot and running the engine won't do it any good.

    Hmmm I know the old x20xe had problems with the icv getting gunked up and showing similar problems, but more of an irratic idle than a high one.....
