Rpm surges in closed loop but not open

Post by boosted crx-r »

I can hold the throttle at 2000 rpm in closed loop and it surges about 600rpm difference but as soon as I switch to open loop while holding the pedal steady it smooths out and no longer surges. Could this be my wideband o2 going bad or something else?

look at your long and short term fuel trims when doing this and you will probably see what is happening.

can you take a look at the trims and give me any recommendations on which way to go? these datalogs are while im in nuetral holding the throttle at a 2000rpm. it looks like a roller coaster in closed loop,

Your problem is the wideband is slow to respond. With the closed loop datalog graph the lambda & short term trim. The lambda lags the short term trim by around 0.7 seconds. Normally the lag will be 0.2s or less.
Ideally you should find out why the wideband is slow, but you could try reducing the closed loop rate of change values so that short term trim changes more slowly.

Ok...I will give that a shot. Is there a point where lowering the short term adjustment will start harming anything on the tune. Would I essentially be running in open loop if the values are set to low? I am running an old box style plx m300 so as you suggested it might be wearing out on me.

The disadvantage is that the trim will be slow to make any fuel corrections. Pull the o2 and clean it in white vinegar for an hour or so. Otherwise replace the o2, but wideband lambdas are so inexpensive now you might consider a new wideband.

Should I change the slow rate of change or the fast rate of change boxes? Bought a new O2 but it didn't help. Gonna get a new wideband now I guess

Try one, then the other, and see what gives the lowest short term trim over a couple of seconds.
