New question: Is there anyway to easily inspect the upper intake to see how much it has been affected by the heat, and maybe see if it has/is abou to fail?

No..code 41 does not affect start up at all. However, (correct me if I'm wrong here people) the cam magnet and cam shaft align the pistons to fire in the correct sequence. Sometimes, since the magnet is gone, the cylinders are not properly aligned and the car sputters on acceleration. This happens maybe once every 6 starts of so.

The pedal feels a but mushy too. However, when I feel the mushy pedal or sputter, I turn off the car and restart it. That seems to work. There are times, however, when the start up is normal and the car peforms better then new. The pedal has lots of resistance and the accel is normal...if not lively!

Based on my limited knowledge of mechanical systems, this is the best summary I can give.

If I had a Series II N/A I might know, I'm stuck with a Series I N/A, sorry, the "pros" will help you out

But as a good hint, if you don't have a 180 T-stat or tranny cooler and you are nearing 100K miles...it might be worth looking at

Hey All I went to the local dealers today to get my car checked and they found no problems no stored codes in the computer or anything..What am I to do???


I went ahead and got a used ignition module..since mine had failed twice..I had the used one tested also at the same autozone and it passed twice..so I'll put that on later ...I am also changing the plugs and wires..and the fuel filter.


I hope some of this stuff helps!

Later and thanks to all that tried to help me on this
