Hi all, I have read LOTS of post here regarding tracking down and curing the evil 171 and i need more ideas. Excuse me if I get something out of line here these dang cars with computers get me!
So far i have changed the air filter - not a K&N (it needed one bad), cleaned the throttle body, pulled and cleaned the MAF sensor, checked the grounds on the battery and the block side, verified that the plug wire was not touching the O2 sensor and cleaned/verified that the PCV was fine. I did do some searching for a vacuum leak but was unable to find anything.
While i don't feel it is related i did replace the water pump and belt before the 171 popped up.
Tonight i changed the fuel filter but only test drive it for a few minutes.
Suggestions / thought ?
