Re: Interesting find, dumbfounded!

I'm sure I've told this story before . I had a friend with a Nissan Stanza ( the ugly 4 wheel drive wagon version). This car was maybe 10 years old. This car would just die for no apparent reason but would restart after an hour. The dealership looked at it multiple times and could not figure it out....

Re: Interesting find, dumbfounded!

The meter scale you have selected can measure a resistance up 2000 ohms. The reading you have on the sensors is 1904 and 1951 ohms. If the new sender has a resistance above 2000 ohms your mete will display a 1 to indicate to you the meters scale has to be changes to measure a resistance greater tha...

Interesting find, dumbfounded!

So my replacement Facet (probably repackaged) coolant temperature sensor arrived yesterday. I found in my tool box a 2 pin Bosch connector I rigged up with some alligator clips and hooked it up to three different coolant temperature sensors. I tried touching the test leads from my multi-meter direct...

Re: Why no notifications?

James, I can't get notifications to not work, in other words, not having issues at all. It must be something to do with Gmail. I checked to see if my email address under my profile had somehow changed or got deleted but it's the same one I've had for years. I keep checking my SPAM folder and none o...

Re: Wheeler Dealers 21.1

I gather most reality shows are staged. Apparently many of the home buying shows are made after the house has been bought and the "story" backdated to make the program. Lately I have been watching Roadkill and I can't believe the condition of the cars those guys drive on the road. You get the impre...

Re: Losing interest in WD

I can tell you right now it's 40 minutes of programming and 20 minutes of commercials. I almost always record my favorite shows on DVR just so I can zoom through the commercials. The 6:30 broadcast nightly news seems the worse, especially halfway. The first 15 minutes is news, then the commercials s...

Re: Air auxiliary valve

When a fuel injected engine won't idle at proper rpm, the first thing to check is the ignition. The second thing is air leaks between the AFI and throttle body. The third thing is the O-ring on the throttle bleed screw. The fourth item is the TPS signal at the ECU. You can chase you tails for month...

It is within the metered airstream of the system, it does not affect horsepower. It can effect idle speed (that being its job).
So if the engine is cold and it's already idling 800 to 1000 rpms and the engine just suddenly stalls, the AAV would probably not have anything to do with it.

Re: Air auxiliary valve

I'm revisiting a thread I started. I have not purchased one of these valves yet. I'm trying to decide is it worth spending at least $40 on something that may not effect anything. Sorry I have not had allot of time to troubleshoot this issue I'm having with my Spider other than giving the air flow me...

Re: More on this stalling/hard starting situation

Well just when it seemed this weird stalling after a cold start was fixed by cleaning the oil out of the AFM and capping off the port I drilled in the AFM, it's back. :twisted: Unless it was shear coincidence, when I wiggled the coolant sensor, the engine stalled, I'm looking at this as being the cu...
