well, i put belden wires on last time i changed the plugs. i made sure they are not touching the headers or near them. where is the front o2 sensor at? i may just change it, my car has 77k+ miles. I already changed my LIM gaskets, not too long ago(about 50-60k miles). could it be failing already? well, its either a vacuum leak or the LIM again, i need to tear it down again, at least replace the vacuum line(which i just tried to repair it with a plastic tee when i damaged it), supercharger gasket and check the LIM gasket, too.

yeah, somebody at work suggested changing the o2 also. if it is burning coolant, it may have foulded it. according to alldata, the bank 1 sensor is in the back? on the rear manifold? how do i get to that? it said to jack the car up, cant i reach it from the top?

We have bank 1 sensor 1, and bank 1 sensor 2. Sensor 1 is what checks the oxygen level in the exhaust, and sensor 2 checks to see how well the cat is doing its job. Sensor 1 is in the rear exhaust manifold and can be reached from above. Sensor 2 is behind the cat, and has a metal shield covering it and the wiring. That can only be reached from under the car. Sensor 1 is the one that helps to adjust the fuel ratio.

cool. thanks. i saw the back one when they put on my dp/hf cat. thats good you can get to it up top, it would have been hard to get to underneath, especially with my big arse.

Has the car been honestly abused?

I ask because I was pretty rough on my old 98 and took it to the track very often. Eventually I had the same symptoms as you and the trans imploded upon itself within 6 months.

You said when you dropped the pan it was just sludge right?

I'm having the exact same symptoms, it is NOT your transmission. I just replaced my transmission with one that has about 50k miles on it and it'* doing the same thing it was before. I'm getting a MAF code 0102, but that'* about it.


:edit:
Check your vacuum line on your FPR. I'm pretty sure that'* what'* doing it with mine. It smells like fresh fuel, and it makes me nervous, but at the same time, it makes sense. I think when it misses, it'* getting it'* fuel cutoff from the FPR, and it makes it stall temporarily. This is just a theory, though. I'll let the gearheads pop in with their two cents
(I don't mean to hijack what so ever, but I'm still pretty sure we have the same issues, since we have the same FPR)

naw, the transmission fluid wasnt too bad, definatly needed to be changed. had a little sludge on the pan, but the fluid itself wasnt bad(just dark). im going to change my vacuum line(if i can find it at the stealerships around here). i havent smelled fuel, i am smelling coolant now, so if i do have a coolant leak, its getting worse(when it heats up, of course).

update: it started throwing a code. it said it was picking up "dirty air" at the upper o2. replaced my LIM gaskets(again), supercharger gasket, and put a new o2 sensor in. the code was still there, so i drove to auto zone to clear it(they said they wont), and it died three times! is it because it has a new o2 sensor and its still throwing the old code? it runs alright, it died when i took a turn(not a stop and turn), when i stopped at a light, and when i put it in neutral, revved it, then put it back in drive. all times when i let off of the gas. im guessing its throwing my mixture off, im hoping i can just wait till the code goes away(if it does). the car is still "bogging down" sometimes. it no longer
"jerks". i just parked it in the driveway, kept the engine running, pulled on the throttle cable a couple times, ran fine. checked all the vacuum lines/gasketed areas. no leaks that i can see/hear. did an "acceleration test" on the hwy, that was fine, boost gauge was pegged. this sucks after working on my car for 2 days. any suggestions?

Unfortunately, just disconnecting the battery will not clear the code. It will either have to be reset, or use up the required amount of starts or run time for it to go away. Do you know what the code was for the O2? What brand O2 sensor did you use? O2s can cause strange problems, but that symptom would be a new one for me for a bad O2. Check your vacuum lines again just to be sure. Check the capped off fitting on top of the supercharger, the T fitting under the supercharger snout, as well as each end of that line, just to be sure. Your symptoms sound more like a vacuum leak, or a bad or dirty MAF.
