    Im just wondering how long has it been leaking before it totally blew out..wondering if it was tuned with a slight leak..

    Only other thing thats different is the new O2s,unless they are bad. .i unplugged the coolant temp to try and force it into ooen loop but it didnt help any,still ran lean with a CEL on

    Well after replacing EVERY sensor AGAIN i think i found the issue. ........

    I had my O2 banks backwards. .apparently there is spose to be one grey and one white connector, dictating which bank the O2 controls...both of mine are white..this truck had 2 O2 both pre-cat and one per y-pipe originally...

    So basically one bank was needing fuel but the O2 was adding it to wrong set of injectors which mad the other O2 read even richer which in turn was taking fuel away from the original bank needing fuel causing it to be even more lean..or something like that..seems to have ran fine for last 45 minutes in the garage. .its pouring rain here so im gonna wait till tomorrow to test drive it,plus im a couple drinks deep!!!

    Say a prayer that was the issue! !

    Your doing it all wrong, you need to reverse that order.

    1.Say a prayer
    2.Have a couple more drinks
    3.Go reenact Tokyo Drift in the rain for 45 minutes.

    As a friend, I'm saying, you only live once.

    That's a fairly common mistake but difficult to find with OBD-I. For OBD-II vehicles that are cross wired one bank will have a lean code and the other bank a rich code. My advice to find the problem easily is to disconnect one sensor and see if the O2 heater fault bank matches the one disconnected. I'm glad you found the problem!

    Traction seems to be an issue. lol.
    Smart man to just relax and have another celebration drink.

    In our younger years we probably wouldn't have exercised good judgement.

    Kinda the way i found out,i unplugged each one at a time and it made it rich or lean...then pulled plugs and could tell that side was not rich or lean..3 sets of plugs,4 O2s,1 coolant sensor, 1 tps and 1 crank sensor i decided to swap banks to see if it effected the opposite bank and sure as hell it did..

    O also unplugging the O2 does not throw a cel,it may throw a non cel code but other than a paper clip method i dont have a way of seeing them

    Good, great to hear. Sorry it was a lot of stress, stuff happens no matter what.

    Some drinks are good, but do it at home, you also only die once.:chug:o_O

    Its destroyed now for sure..ive been talking to Astro about their A5 kit,it uses a different input shaft than i have..they do make the correct input shaft but is for the aussie's falcon t5 which is same trans as im using..BUT they haven't made any in over a year and hadnt plan on making any unless special ordered..at the time i couldnt afford it but after the aviator is running im going to have them make me one with their A5 straight cut kit... $$$$$$

    Gota get the avi motor pulled,rebuilt and back in first...

    Ouch, the projects like to eat too much. My work truck/DD needs a radiator, and I don't have time right now. Do what you can, fingers crossed here.
