i jammed a 24mm socket and ratchet and bumped the starter which broke
loose the bolt but i was unable to extract the harmonic balancer so i
got pissy and bought a code reader. the code is p0122, tps .
i ordered a tps for tomorrow, got the "security torx bit" and hope to
finish early tomorrow.
thanks for the info i asked for and advice i didnt but needed.
if there is more to the story, i shall let you know.
