1999 SW1
1999 SL1
Default 1999 SL1 throwing codes P0301, P0405, P0507

Ok,

I've had this car a week, and it has been throwing the P0301, P0405, P0507 codes. It's a 1999 SL1 SOHC, withe 103,600kms. :S

From a little bit of searching on the forum, it looks like this is the intake gasket folding issue that many have encountered.

Just to give you some symptoms:

1. the car, at idle in park, seems to idle "ok", maybe a bit high at 1000-1100 rpm

2. when i put the car in drive, and apply the brakes, like when you come to a stop, the car has very low idle, and it starts to feel like it kicks - i'm guessing the idle is like 500-700rpm, or maybe lower. almost seems like it will stall

3. when i spray carb cleaner near the 1st cylinder (near the power steering reservoir) the rpms drop. The car is in park, so the rpms are like 1000-1100rpm, then it drops to 700-800rpm when i spray the carb cleaner

4. Other than those problem listed above, the car runs great on the highway/city and has no hesitation/problems otherwise

So, is this a clear-cut issue with the intake gasket? or is it battery related? I'm tending to think gasket with the rpm change due to the carb spray.

From what I have researched, it looks like it is some $$$ towards a gasket, 2-3 hours of wrench time, and a 6-pack of beer.

How much is the felpro gasket anyways?

What's your opinion?

Sounds like you need to go buy the beer. You need a gasket. RockAuto to find the price.

You're going to have to drain the coolant to do that gasket. You might as well replace the ECTS while you're at it, if you haven't already. I've had good luck with the Airtex sensor from rockauto.

There is nothing more frightening than ignorance in action.
