SSEi stumbling at hot idle....what gives?
Ok, now that I have a day or two off, I am working on the new ride. I've washed the engine bay and such, now I am getting greasy and figuring out why this runs the way it does. I pulled the codes, and for some odd reason, there aren't any. Here is the thing: runs nice when its cold, when it warms up, runs like crap, like there is a misfire. Checked the coils and they seem fine enough to make the car run...checked all the wires, plugs are decent enough, cleaned the TB...what else am I overlooking? BTW, I ordered the new balancer, and the parts guy told me that might have something to do with the running condition as there is a tone wheel for the crankshaft sensor....any thoughts on this?
