- I tried to simply reset the ECU by pulling the battery cable for about 5 minutes, but I should have looked up the correct procedure to try it. Good point.
- I'm having the low power issue at low rpms (between 1700 - 2100 rpms). Injectors were one of the things that came to my mind too. I forgot to mention that I did replace the fuel fileter (originally done about 2 years ago). I cut it apart to look at the filter to see if I was getting anything weird in it (thinking that maybe those tanks are rusting out, but I didn't see a single flake after running the tanks dry twice in the filter paper).
- The engine picks up around 2200 rpms and goes like normal. It seems like the engine issue doesn't occur nearly as much with the transmission disengaged as opposed to having the transmission putting a load on the engage. Anything below 2000 and it wants to start bucking like a horse almost.
- I have seen the check engine light come on momentarily, but that hasn't really been anything new since I bought the car about 3 years ago. The light comes on mostly as I run high revs and then let off the gas with the transmission still engaged.
Various errors I have seen so far during the past few months:
13 - Oxygen Sensor; Open Circuit
22 - Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) Circuit; Siggnal Voltage Low
24 - Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) Circuit
24- TIP: A Weak idle mixture or bad misfire can cause this.
34 - Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) Sensor Circuit; Signal Voltage Low
35 - Idle Speed Error
35 - TIP: Maybe IAC Valve or bad misfire
44 - Oxygen Sensor Circuit; Lean Exhaust Indicated.
I have been speculating that I have a sensor issue somewhere that is messing up the ECU calculations. I have ruled out the spark plugs since they all pretty much look the same except one might have been running a little hotter than other because it looked like some white build up on the nodes after I cleaned off all of the soot. It is getting air since I removed the air filter, and gas seems to be flowing, although perhaps it isn't getting enough pressure from the sender which I cannot easily rule out yet.Which means I'm down to O2 sensor, IAC valve sensor; and TPS sensor as being possible culprits. Perhaps an new O2 sensor would be the next part to try replacing (hopefully the local hardware store has those).
I'll post the videos soon but they are too big to easily download to YouTube.
