Default Replacing the ECTS fixed my Starting problem - Thank you

As a Guest on your forum I looked around this site for ideas to fix the starting problem with my 1999 SL2 with 109000 miles. We tried new plugs, new plug wires, new gas filter (all good ideas) but the car still would not start smoothly and at times I had to put my foot on the gas to the floor to get it to start.

Finally we went to forum and saw the reference to the ECTS (engine coolant temperature sensor). The parts house said this would not fix the problem, so back to your site a second time. Then we found the reference to the ECTS signaling the PCM, so we bit the bullet and replaced the ECTS. WOW!!! The car is now running and starting well.

I joined this forum so I could tell you THANK-YOU and to encourage other guest to trust you on this one, starting problems can be fixed by replacing the ECTS.
