Remember, when the MAF is unplugged, the PCM switches to different tables for setting the AFR. With it plugged in it uses live data from the MAF. If that data is incorrect, then the engine wont run right. Do you by chance have a oiled air filter?

I just use the standard Fram air filter, non washable. I don't THINK those are oiled?

My EVAP line connectors(the one under the green cap going to the can, and one that connects under airbox or next to the airbox) are SO crumbly. Getting new ones thursday.

Can't figure out how to get throttle body off. Where are the other 2 nuts at?

There are 2 on the bottom, one at about 4 O clock, and the other about 7 O clock.

Ok, so I was looking at the right things. The question now is how to get them? There'* a bracket thing at the 7 o clock position, so I tried to get that screw out. I did, but the bracket thing didn't even move!

There'* another bolt on the bottom of that bracket. But it'* really hard to get to. I just pull it out of the way. It will move towards the front of the car. Then you can get to that nut under it.

Ok, so basically, undo the bracket screw and work a little harder to pull the bracket?

also, the throttle looks like it'* screwed onto the body as well with the same type of bracket screw assembly. Just undo those as well?

Not sure what you mean by that. Other then that one small bracket, there'* only 3 nuts holding the throttle body on.

Quick question...

tomorrow, I'll be getting new vacuum connectors.


1)These are the connectors underneath the green EVAP cap going to the canister under throttle body. Which way does that plastic piece go? Small end towards the canister or other way?

2)Would I know immediately that the car is better when I start it? Or, since the CEL won't be reset, will the car still act as if there'* a problem even if it IS fixed?

3)Following that question, which battery cable do i need to unhook to reset the CEL?

Looks like one end is larger, so look at your hoses.

Disconnect the negative cable and leave it off for about 20 mins.
