Re: Engine drops revs at idle.

My guess is iacv since the pcm controls it for all idle rpm adjustments. You'll have to remove it for cleaning as its just a plunger operated by pcm command to extend or retract to allow supplemental...

Re: ECU Temperature reading, S series?

With a cold engine, remove the coolant sensor. The system may leak some fluid but won't as vacuum will hold coolant from pouring out as you make a quick assessment. Either you have the original...

Re: My experience with a R12A recharge kit.....

^ Yep ^. R12a, actually HC12a is illegal in the USA. Made up with propane butane, highly flammable under pressure.

Homecoming1999, is it true about Canadian diyers not able to buy R134a?

Re: I went to check on a issue with my parking brake but found something way worse..

If that's your worst weld using an erratic old mig welder, I wonder how your welding abilities improve with fixing it or moving up to a better one.

Is it a worn out switch, worn feed mechanism or...

Re: Need help troubleshooting intermittent hesitation and hard starting

The O2 sensor cannot affect startup. Cold engine startup; the pcm ignores O2 sensor until the sensor heats up above 600F when it begins outputting signals. During cold engine running/open loop mode,...

Re: What the !%&*@ is going on here?

Re: Need help troubleshooting intermittent hesitation and hard starting

Some great suggestions here but with this erratic random problem, perhaps some basic troubleshooting may help.

Re: 2001 SL1: AC connector at the compressor

Re: Four Seasons AC compressor

Is there a reason the rear scroll control valve seal leaked? Any idea of a repair if you have to open it?

Re: SL1 revving way too high at idle and while driving

Re: Leaking fuel line at fuel rail?

No, fuel pressure should not vary greatly as you've observed. The reason for a fuel pressure regulator is to maintain pressure within a range. Your large pressure varying between 32-42 psi is either...

Re: hvac levers and cable lubrication

Motorcycle cables are exposed to dirt at speed, collecting on entry ways to each exposed cable to the elements. It's only natural for cables to require lubrication form time to time. At worst I think...

Re: 2001 Saturn L300 - v6 3.0 Liter - Alternator (I didn't install it correctly) ?

I give up. You refuse to acknowledge B2 is the only connection for the factory configuration and you're still insisting on using B1 and B2 for your auxiliary wiring. Until you address this issue and...

Re: 2001 Saturn L300 - v6 3.0 Liter - Alternator (I didn't install it correctly) ?

You're not making sense of conflicting sentences. B2 is only terminal for the 12v fusible link wire supplying 12v from the battery to power the alternator. Did you make this sentence incomplete(?) -...
