EHA valve has failed
Erratic reeving stalling on the low rpm, rpm jumps up and down really rough heavy vibration when maintaining cruising speeds. Horrible fuel mileage.
Fuel smell and slow acceleration
My EHA is leaking like a broken toilet found a used one on ebay for 60 dollars
Burning excessive fuel when mashing on gas want pickup speed right away
Then blow out smoke pickup speed runs like its clogged up
EHA was seeping fuel out of vent hole. Replacement took 15 minutes (2 bolts, 2 viton Orings)
Strong odor of gas fumes inside car. Also after exiting the car.
