I dunno about your auto zone, but the one by me
wont do shit.
Anybody know the proper readings on these things.
If someone has a working one maybee you could just pull it off and check to
what the specs are and post them here.
That way it would help everyone who im sure has run into this
at sometime or another.
Thanks for the advice.
But i went to Autozone today and got a new one for $30.00
well of course the car is still running as shity as before.
one thing i have noticed throught all this is that it seems to
get worse the warmer the engine gets.
and befor you ask, my thermostat is fine.
car stays a nice COOL temp no mater how long i drive.
If anyone can advise anthing else im all ears.
I will repeat what ive replaced, Cap, Rotor, Spark Plugs.
& now TPS Throttle position sensor. and no real signifigent change
affter replacing any of these things.
I also Cleaned a shitload of corrosion from Where the Coil wire connects
to the Coil. Cleaned them both real good. Also Cleaned Ground battery
Did you try to pull the PCM codes? When the engine is cold, the engine is
running in open loop mode and the PCM controls the timing and fuel injectors
using permanent settings stored in a look-up table. It selects the parameters
from the table based on sensor readings and modifies them based on a stored
history. After the car warms up, it goes into closed loop mode. The PCM now
adjusts the fuel injectors based on feedback from the O2 sensors (as well as the
other inputs and the lookup table). I'd recommend checking the O2 sensors. You
also need to read the PCM codes. A code reader for your car (pre-OBDII) should
be fairly inexpensive. You can read the codes using a voltmeter also (see
