I don't know the guy from Adam, but I'd like to hook him up with good people. I just felt like playing middle-man tonight! Let me know, and I'll relay any and all info.

Brandon, I'm willwren on http://www.naioa.com/v2/ , not impalass. My goof.

He'll be in VERY good care and company at NEBF, but we may have him fixed before then. I know there are many ICM'* at NEBF ready for new homes at great prices though. And help galore.

Hey guys,
BonnevillesSince62 pointed me in your direction and it looks like you've got some good pointers. Another note; I swapped the ICM and coils with my Grandmothers Le Sabre that runs mint and the same problem existed. It was actually a little worse it wouldn't even stay running so I'll clean up the bracket tonight.

What'* NEBF?

Thank you all, Bryan Rexford

May be more to the story about your issues.... But do get the ICM plate and the like cleaned up... we also need to know if you have any Manufacture specific codes like P1350 or P1361..

also do you have any other codes ? If you have the codes please list them so we can get a better idea of what the issues may be.... Its extremely rare to see more than a few codes at one given time...

Hey guys,
I just cleaned up the ICM plate as suggested and it made no difference. Last week these are the codes I had:
P0361
P0321
P0341
P0342
I brought it to a shop and they cleared the codes and none appeared until tonight. I changed the Cam sensor and those codes did not reappear. The car was starting then quitting within 5 seconds. I had to start it 10+ times then started feathering the throttle and it would smooth out. I checked fuel pressure and its good. After the 10 or so starting attempts it started running fine. I waited 5 or so minutes and it quit. It set these codes:
P0361
P0321
To eliminate the ICM I used a known good ICM and coils and I had the same problem so the unit and coils themselves are not the issue.

Also if anyone knows a good shop in the Nashua Manchester area let me know; I've had no luck.

willwren; I love the dog! I've got a boxer 11 month old named Colby, looks just like yours without the cropped ears.

Thanks guys, Bryan Rexford

Another side note: the car sat for two years. One of the injector wires had been chewed by a mouse, but I fixed that. I scoured the underhood wiring looking for more chewed spots and ran everything, but found no other damage. They did not get in the car they were mostly interested in the hood insulation.
Thanks again, Bryan

Make sure to check the Main connector of the wiring harness... as well make sure to reseat the 3 connectors at the PCM..

I think the P0361 should actually be a 1361...

How far will you be from Enfield CT?

I agree with everything else said so far, so start with that, but what about fuel pressure, have you checked it to see that youre getting good pressure to the rail?

Also, you mentioned the car has been sitting for two years, did you put some fresh gas in it? Or is it attempting to run off two year old gas?
