Re: Engine ticking loudly while idle and revving and while warm!

Also I don't know if this makes a difference but it sounds normal at idle.

Now for the most important question, should I attempt this job myself (I've never done anything this involved before)...

Re: '03 Vue i4 2.2 Manual w/ SES + Reduced Power Lights

Sorry one more question, is replacing the ECU easy enough for a DIY? From what I've been able to gather its located underneath the battery tray?

Re: '03 Vue i4 2.2 Manual w/ SES + Reduced Power Lights

Just curious (and knowing my luck) what would happen if replacing the ECU doesn't work?

Also if the donor ECU is from an AT 2.2 Vue, would that affect anything?
