Anytime cores from junkyards are used the risk is there that they may be damaged before we get them. Since using all brand new PCM'* would be cost prohibitive this is the only solution. Unfortunately, once in a while we get a bad one that flashes fine but has some hardware issues within it and in those cases we just swap them out with a different one no problem.
Scott is out of the office however until the 11th so I can't get you a replacement until then.
Just finished installing my replacement PCM and it'* working great. Thanks to the guys at intense. Everything seems to be working great. Tomorrow comes the New Iridium plugs (TR55ix) and new O2 sensor and fuel filter. I hope I can get some of my fuel milage back.
