I have not been able to find a diagnostic tool that works with this car (I have an ELM327), but I have given a it a shot of Powerboost and that made things a lot better. I suspect the throttle body and intake/valves/injectors are well gummed up and that is causing the problems. We have now decided the car must go!
ELM327 will not read early imports, nor a snap on machine will either. Coding is different on Japs. and it uses 2 ports at the same time to read the obd 1 and 2 at the same time.
Gumming up - resolved by disconnecting the breathing pipe from block to inlet, replace with breathing filters.
I am in the process having the cylinder head off for a recon. Its a great car - only when its all working good
