It was hilarious that I called him and he'* scanning to say oh boy...

Looking back quick...this thread started off as a possible PCM/ICM coil questions. I like how it'* turned around with a low cost fix (so far)

Boost,

Are we related....I was just thinking that this morning when I was driving to work from the gym . It'* a testament to the fine members on the board Trust me, no one will be happier than me if it'* fixed. I blew quite the wad on the bike for Autocom system, IPOD etc. Now if only Mother nature would get her act together so I can ride and enjoy.

Bufford'* back Just got back from South Bend. 436 miles round trip. Not even a hint of trouble. Nada, Zippo, no missing at all. I had a lot of stop and go traffic mixed in there with 2 lane'* all the way up there and back. I feel real comfortable saying that this issue is RESOLVED Oh yeah...I forgot to mention the icing on the cake. I drove anywhere from 50 - 75 mph, and averaged 31.878 mpg. I haven't seen that kinda mileage in a long time. I would say 40 miles of that was in town driving too. Had some WOT'* in there to when I passed. I'm happy - can you tell. THANKS EVERYONE for your help in taking care of this problem ......now it'* time for some new front end sway bar links. I seen a nice link from Jr'* 3800 about installing the kit from AZ. Looks like the way to go.

Ron350,

Fuel filter, but I don't think that this was the remedy to the problem. I see by your sig that you have a 96 SE too. If you're having this type of a problem I would suggest you read this thread closely and follow the steps that Boost, and Lash gave me. If you don't know how long the fuel filter has been in there, then of course replace that was well.

Good Luck.

Ron.. to sum things up (and I strongly suggest reading the three pages of the post fully) the problem was rectified with some cleaning of connectors, reseating and ensure the plug wires didn't come in contact with the O2 sensor wires.

As a follow up from my end...

If you recall, I had the same P0306 code show up last week and saw the #6 plug wire laying really close to the O2 sensor. After zip-tying that wire out of the way, I have had no repeat problems since.
