I'm a cheap guy..why pay an extra $100 if you don't have any reason to?
Yes, thank you. I did that last night and already sent an email to contact someone about it.
But, here'* the scoop. Shop calls me a little bit ago and they say they still can't get the car to act up. BUT, the new water pump I put on a few weeks ago is still leaking. I don't know if the pump is faulty or if it'* coming out around the gasket but I'll know in a little bit when i go pick up the car and i will ask. I asked how bad is it leaking and he just said "well......... it needs attention". He said since it didn't act up, he can't say for sure ut he thinks it may be possible that the original bad waterpump leaking on the crank sensor caused the problems and now the new one leaking may be still causing it but he said that is only a lead because he can't say for certain because the car didn't give him a reading.
So............ I asked 10 different people and got 10 different answers about putting gasket sealer on the waterpump gasket. I finally was told to put just a tiny bit around the gasket, so I did. The mechanic told me take it off and redo the waterpump, and DON'T use any type of RPV or anything.
So, I'll find out if it'* a bad pump or a bad gasket and go from there but since it'* still leaking a bit, does anyone else agree that, this could be creating my problems?
After hearing that, Bill, are you still pretty certain about the PCM? Advice is always appreciated.
