Hello all... well, after Bill Buttermore'* great write up on the R & R, I installed my first front wheel drive transaxle, and without his help, it would have been a PITA! BUT---
Now I have a problem of backfiring, poor idle, and no power at all... my boost gauge will go to full boost but if it pops through the intake then the needle will jump until i lift off the pedal. I can generally feather the pedal and it will be OK but if i give it full throttle, it sputters chokes and backfires. Overall, the thing is running like a dog.
OK-- before Wilren jumps in, I have replaced the plugs, wires, ICM, and Coils with working ones... I measured Ohms on all 6 coils that I now own, and they are all pretty much the same resistance. TB has been cleaned... IAC pintle is good. The car is running pretty hot, around 210-220 and stays in this range.
I do have an Actron scantool, but I am not sure about some of the stuff that is on there.... the one that I am not sure what it is measuring is the ESC counter
this number has been in the 100'*.... I have seen only a few posts regarding the ESC counter and they appear to all be at zero. KS is at zero. My advance is around 20 at idle. Any ideas, let me know what more info you need from me!!
