does our cars adapt on how hard do you drive them??? because i normally dont even get up to 3k..today i drive it hard and i noticed the car slower than when i hit it up...does our car adapt to the driving?? should i reset the DME so it learn my new driving habits (will drive it hard)

also can a bad fuel filter cause this? or what does the a bad filter cause??

thanks

speak to Wayne at powerchip.. I think he has some experience with these things... from a dme programming point of view anyway.

I dunno--the old Merc trick was to put the key to the #2 position, hold the gas pedal in for 10 minutes, turn it off, pull key out, and start it (DME thinks the car was going WOT for 10 minutes and adjusts accordingly).

I don't think this will do anything, but the only thing you have to lose is 10 minutes.

Oh, when you do it, make racing sounds and pretend to turn the steering wheel. I think you have to do this in order for the DME to reset....






...joking about that part, but worth a shot at what I posted previously.

I recall that if you disconnect the battery for 30 minutes + it will reset everything - then go for a drive and trash it :M5launch:

The fuel filter can cause (in extreme cases) the engine to misfire, particulary at higher rpm.
