I have code on my car after replacing the UIM/LIM/Throttle body gaskets.

I'm thinking I got the MAF dirty from disturbing the stuff in the TB when we put it back together. Gonna pull it out and spray some cleaner on it and see what happens.

Nope, haven't had time. It runs just fine though so it can't be anything major.

Watched video before coffee. Started the video a few seconds after the beginning, ended up being the ground/ earth below. What I saw was the dead grass near the starter.

lets see, the transmission went out on the lumina, so im cleaning and rearranging the carport so i can pull it in and work on it. the "rod knock" is gone though so i guess it wasnt the engine to begin with.
