I'm having trouble with my 2QM15
, hard to start, bleeding air takes lots of time and patience. When she finally does bust off there's a "cha cha cha" sound from the intake. She idles rough but runs ok when rev'd over 1000 rpm
dies when forward is engaged, but seems to be alright in reverse, both while tied to dock
, I'm afraid to leave the slip because of the current
through the marina, don't want to paddle uphill.
Could the "cha cha" be a bad valve causing hard starts and low compression
, hence the struggle under a load?
Also am interested in a down loadable shop manual if anyone knows where or how to obtain that....at no cost!
