I got a bluetooth OBDII interface for christmas, it is interesting to see a graph that relates engine speed, tps position, and speed in realtime.

Re: P0341 went away after replacing wires and plugs but

My fun with P0341 ended when I put an ICM from a 2nd Gen on my 3rd Gen SL1 engine.

Just something to consider.

Re: Elusive high idle issue - 2001 SL1

Ask for a TPS for a 99 SL2. There is a little internal tab that will be in the wrong spot and will prevent the plug from going in. Use a flat ended razor knife to carve out that tab in the TPS....

Re: Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) Diagnosis

When you go to the parts store, go to O'Reilly, and ask for the TPS for a 1999 not a 2002. Get the BWD.

Then, take a flat blade xacto knife and carefully cut out the little tab that is meant to...

Re: Drum to Disc Parts

Not meaning to hijack your thread, but I have an SL2 with rear discs if you want to compare notes on how it goes together. The parts are not for sale, but I am in western WA.

Re: RPMs in Neutral with TAAT

Monitor this, if the RPMs dont drop to ~800 when stopped and idling in gear you might have a Throttle Position Sensor problem.

Re: 02 SC1 Cranks but no start/run

Go to your local Pull-a-Part and get a set of ICM and coils from a 1999 S series. Put in a new set of wires and copper core NGK's. Been there, done that.

Re: Possessed cluster

Sorry to double-post, but how is your alternator output doing? How old is your battery?

Everytime I have seen twitchy gauges it is usually due to an under-voltage or over-voltage.

Re: Junkyard engines

Did not mean a true compression test, meant mainly rolling it over by hand to feel for the compression stroke. A true "compression test" would be a waste of time I agree.
