    LOTS of codes, and need some help!

    Well I've tried all of that, and none of it worked. Cleaned the MAF again and it seemed to run ok for a bit once I cleared the codes, but they came back after about 200 miles. I have a new symptom though, the car did idle crazy once when it was started and it died out. Right when I started it...

    LOTS of codes, and need some help!

    Also, I have cleaned the MAF, still no difference. Would two upstreams really go bad at the exact same time? I don't want to go wasting money so I am scared to even try changing them. That is my last solution I will go for. Anything else people have experienced?

    LOTS of codes, and need some help!

    Hmm, is there any way I can check the wires with my volt meter back at the sensor? To see if they are working? I tried seeing where the wires go, but they seem to go up INTO the body or something...

    LOTS of codes, and need some help!

    Well I am having a lot of troubles lately, and need some help out. First let's start with emission codes and what I have checked. I am getting a code p0171 and p0174, have done my research on these on here as well...I found out that the most probable cause is the upper/lower intake manifold...

    CEL Blinking, plugs question

    CEL Blinking, plugs question

    Wow, even more bigtime than expected...here were the codes: P0301 Misfire Cyl. 1 P0303 Misfire Cyl. 3 P0306 Misfire Cyl. 6 Now that looks like 1 and 3 are on the opposite side of what I was working on. Also I find it strange that those THREE codes came up, what could be the issue...

    CEL Blinking, plugs question

    Does it pull codes if it's flashing? If it does, I have an autozone less than a mile from me :).

    CEL Blinking, plugs question

    Well I messed with the wires quite a bit, and they feel like they are on, I can feel underneath them and they are almost all the way over the insulator...I will pull the plugs out tomorrow and check those as well, but the only thing that makes me nervous is that it really seems like the wires...

    CEL Blinking, plugs question

    Well I changed the 3 easy to get to plugs on my 4.0L 98, one at a time so I got the wires back on in the right order. Now my CEL is blinking, and runs real rough. Could this be due to the fact that I changed one side of plugs, but not the other side? I think I should put them back in, but I...

    Upper Intake Manifold Gasket

    Hey I have figured out that my upper intake manifold gasket HAS to be the cause of my problems (I am no longer under warranty btw) so anyways I need to change it out, and here's my issue. I've got OBDII codes for both O2 sensors and I have changed out the MAF and stuff, and both wouldn't go out...

    ABS Codes?

    Well it's weird. I hooked it back up the other way, and now the light isn't on initally, I go to pull out of my parking space, and it goes on a few seconds after driving forward. But if I stop, put it in reverse, it turns off? Wtf? Also, I'm still not sure the colors are right.

    ABS Codes?

    Well, I switched the wires around, and the light was still on. So I drove it to work today, still on. On the way back home however, the light was on and then turned off. I made a stop (about 20 miles towards home) and went inside, left the car on. When I came back, the light was on again. I...

    ABS Codes?

    Only problem I can see now is even if I clear the rear codes, I still have: C1102 ABS Acceleration Switch Circuit Failure Which is the g switch. Where even is the g switch? I have both the haynes and chilton's and it doesn't tell you...this is getting very irritating :(.. Also, I...

    ABS Codes?

    What is actually INSIDE the diff. there? I haven't really gotten much into the differentials much, so I'm not real familiar with what could be inside for the ABS. Javey PS Here is the definition of the codes: C1102 ABS Acceleration Switch Circuit Failure C1230 Speed Wheel Sensor Rear...
