Question : My
1997 Proton Wira 1.5 auto is experiencing some problems.
Despite a new battery, the remote control could not deactivate the alarm
to open the doors, especially in the morning.
When starting, especially when it is cold, the engine produces the 'chug,
chug' sound of a fishing boat and it strains to accelerate, only attaining
40km/h at 4,000 rpm for about five minutes !
What's wrong and what can be done to eliminate the problems ?
If both the batteries are good, then you should get someone to look at the
alarm system. On the other hand, it may be something as simple as bad
earthing of the alarm system. So the best is to get someone familiar with
the system to look at it.
Also, get the car checked out with a harness or EFI checker.
I think one of the sensors ( probably temperature ) is faulty and so the
start mixture is not rich enough and the engine has difficulty pulling when
