Re: How-To: MMO Piston Soak + Oil Change

It should help free up any stuck piston rings you have. Results could be slightly better performance and less oil burning.

Re: 2002 SL2 Stalls when coming to a Stop

Yes, I've seen that in real cold climates but the car heats up OK. It's due for a antifreeze flush/renew and a new thermostat.


I'm not sure if that P0107 code was real and if it was I haven't...

Re: 2002 SL2 Stalls when coming to a Stop

Things are looking up.

I checked the OBD codes today and it had a "Pending" P0107 (MAP Sensor low voltage) so I cleared it. I pulled the PCM-B fuse for a few hours this afternoon and then all...

Re: 2002 SL2 Stalls when coming to a Stop

Took the car out today and based on the 3-mile drive to work:

Good News: It doesn't seem like I screwed up the IACV by turning the pintle the other day.

Bad News: The idle dip still appears...

Re: RPM Drop really low after engaging clutch.

There were several threads on this that stated the parts house had the SOHC gasket mixed up with the DOHC gasket. I ordered both just to cover my bases. My 2002 SL2 has the orange rubber o-ring...

Re: RPM Drop really low after engaging clutch.

Did you remove the IAC and were you able to move the Pintle shaft in or out? I wasn't.

Re: RPM Drop really low after engaging clutch.

Me too - it doesn't do it when cold but when the temp gauge gets up to 1/4 (which is steady state) it exhibits the rpm drop when stopping.

Re: RPM Drop really low after engaging clutch.

Sounds like this may be my problem except my RPM drop isn't as dramatic.

What's the recommended source/part for replacement IACV? I see Rockauto has ones from approx $30-$140 !!
