    Seriously, get it on a consult type system and check all the sensor readings. Specs for these are all listed out in the EC section of the workshop manual, as is all the information you need to diagnose almost any fault.

    Guessing and replacing parts on a hunch is just pissing in the wind really.

    Problem is very few people around my area have the correct plug for the s15. I've found a mechanic who has it he thinks but he's in Australia until the end of next week so she's parked up til then. Hopefully he'll be able to sort me out

    Tell him to buy one while he's in Auss, they are easy to get hold of here

    So i managed to get the time to get this sorted on Friday. The problem was the AFM as suspected but......... I had replaced the O2 sensor prior to this to see if that would solve the issue, and like an idiot I wired the damn thing in wrong and it was causing the ecu to think that the car was over fueling and it was cutting back on the fuel to the engine. So in trying to solve the actual problem, which was the AFM, I created another similiar problem in the O2 sensor making me think that the AFM wasn't the problem. So ya it was a bit of a cluster f**k on my own behalf. To make matters worse the mechanic reckons I've shagged the new O2 sensor by wiring it wrong as he wasn't getting a reading from it with a volt meter after wiring it properly. Chances are the one I took out was probably fine so I'm going to wire that back in for the time being as see if the fuel consumption improves, at least it was a cheap one! You live you learn I suppose!
