AAA is wonderful. The past few weeks, the car has had more miles on a flatbed , than it'* had with its wheels on the road. In fact, more miles (which is 0) than it has had in the 8 years I have owned it.
I have a MAF, ICM, and coils. They are yard parts but I benchtested them, then ran them on the car to make sure they were good backup.
Here'* where we are. The car kicks over for about 15 seconds, stumbles and cuts. Which means I'll be able to get 30? freeze frames.
I'll tell ya right now, I don't like the way the oil pressure gauge is jitterbugging in the short time it runs smooth.
I'll put the MAF and ignition stuff in tonight, but now that I checked the FSM, that 163 psi on the #3 cylinder is way out of range. And way out of range of the compression across the cylinders I have in my notes from a couple of years ago.
As I said, I'll put in the MAF and ignition parts and collect some data tonight.
Still, nobody has seen a DTC, since I had the P0530, and re-connected the sensor, when it all started. Bleep.
