    studdering after WOT

    WHen first started my car drives fine. M6 cheatr cam...
    After a WOT run or after it warms up it seems to lose it's tune. It wants to die at anthing less than 75% throttle. I tried to clean my battery cable because its corroded. Can this be the tune. It seems like something electrical. It still runs like a bat out of hell at WOT.

    I did just remove my AIR, but it was doing that before.

    without seeing a log of the occurance, my suggestion would be in the tune yes.

    Thanks, I went ahead and bought the cord anyway. The thing is the car ran fine for about a year on the tune and then it seemed to lose it at times. My tuner says that a car can't lose it's tune.

    the tuner is correct. the car doesn't lose it's programming. something has happened IE sensor go bad, plug wire, spark plugs worn, etc...

    No codes? No, it does not 'lose' the tune.

    Thanks, hopefully this corroded wire being replaced will help. The car actually acts as if it has a short. However, the short seems to be overwhelmed at WOT when demanding a lot of voltage. I've even noticed lately that the blinker blinks slowly when the car is malfunctioning.

    After months, and hundreds of dollars at different shops, I found a vacuum leak. There was a vacuum hose that ran pass my battery to the ac/heater vac tank. The acid corroded the hose. Problem fixed. The beast is back.
