My girlfriend has a 95 SSEI with many issues. I did some searches and didn't find the info I was looking for and my time is a little short today because I have 8 guest coming to the house in a few hours for dinner.
I put a new waterpump on her car about a month ago. After that I started getting some check engine lights and the exaust smelled rich. I had the codes read and got a code for MAF. I replaced it and then I was getting a code for bank 1 lean so I put a new O2 sensor on it. Still running bad, erratic idle, rich mixure...etc. She took it to the dealer and they said it had a bad MAF. I got the MAF replaced by NAPA for no charge and it seems to run better but it cuts out at times. She said it seemed to cut out at 2000RPM. I drove it today and it felt like the torque converer was momentarily unlocking around 2000RPM. If you held it there it would drop out...back in...back out...back in. Now I'm thinking it could be the ign. cutting out momentarily also. I shut the car off, go in to the store for 10 minutes and when I return it doesn't want to start. Actually it cranked and the died immediatly. I did this about 4 or 5 times and then I get under the hood. I wiggle the wires going to the MAF (all secure), wiggle the wires going to the coil pack (all secure) and tap on the MAF. I get back in the car and it starts right up. Coincience??? It did throw a code but I have to pay someone to read it for me again.
The ECC is flashing the temp display for a few moments when you first start the car. The lights for the ride comtrol are both on at the same time. (I don't know when that started but noticed it after the water pump)
Did I do something when I changed the water pump? Is it just time for this car to have problems?
I rarely drive the car so I don't know what was already happening and what started after the pump replacement.
Sorry for the long post. I will come back and do some more searches and reading when I have more time. Sorry for the long post! Any help you can give me will be greatly appreciated.
BTW- I am in Huntsville,AL if there is anybody here that could read codes or assist me.
