Re: P0171 code, yet long term fuel trim indicate car is running rich

Don't worry about the kicking into open loop. You probably already know this but the way most Engine Control modules work is that the engine starts in Open Loop, meaning that it's ignoring most fuel...

Re: P0171 code, yet long term fuel trim indicate car is running rich

I definitely agree that I would not expect to see huge negative Long Term fuel trim if there's a lean code. The Bank 1 Sensor 1 Voltage is borderline 0 volts in the picture. I think there may be an...

Re: What type of scan tool are you using?

Re: Looking For Bolts X3

I was trying to figure out what you meant by tongue and then it became a mission to find the thread pitch for this bolt. Seems like no one lists the thread pitch because they want 5 or so bucks per...

Re: Driver side mirror fell off

I went with a set from Burco that I found on Rock Auto. They have held up pretty good, the heater works well in them, the mirror is nice and flat without distortion, and way better than the weird...

Re: What type of scan tool are you using?

That price range is going to be the really good low functionality scan tools (so Global OBD2 DTC read and graphing for data but maybe not ABS/Airbag/Others and maybe limited bidirectional controls)...

Re: New Astra H Repair Assist Videos

Thanks AstraFasta, so long story short. Essentially 10 years as a dealer technician, then 5 years working for a scan tool company (which is crazy going from the guy holding the tool reading the...

Can you post the codes that you have? If you check out the below video, I had quite a few codes when I first picked up my car. Including a P0068, P0420, and a P2096. I think the bulk of the issue...

Re: Why do you LOVE your Saturn?
