Bottom end is assembled. And somehow still spins.

Since Mike never posts... grey car (hippo) had an unfortunate last year. Some idiot in a Leaf hit and ran and caused a decent bit of damage and after she (the car) had already had a really bad collision with a deer late one night, it was just too much to fix. The miles were really getting up there and it seems like she was cursed. She's not dead though, just sold locally to someone who is going to really make her or her parts into something very, very fun.

Grey car has been retired from my ownership :/


Well, after the last coil-swappage and driving around a couple of days, all has been normal so far. Also did find the signal line to the MBC was toast, and fixed it....slightly better boost control now.

Re: Official PDX Lounge

The CEL is programmed to turn on via settings in the hydra. There will only be one or two that could possibly turn it on if the engine is off. That'll really narrow it down for you.

You may be on to something with the voltage issue though, you can usually get the battery and alternator checked at any parts store for free.

Not quite sure what you're asking. As in what series of events triggers a CEL? Right now/up until now, it was the random loss of ignition to the cyl. 2/3 COP.

Oh no, the opportunity has been extremely helpful, please don't be/feel sorry!

After the oddity earlier, I swapped their locations, and the car fired right up and I hit the road to Jenn's place. All has been running fine since....and the CEL has gone back into hiding. However, at one point the airbag light started flashing, and a couple times on acceleration, the speedometer seemed to lag/then jump up. I'm starting to suspect an alternator/system voltage issue....fun. I can't say I've experienced the joys of dealing with OBD-II in a long time....something the '02 didn't have.

Re: Official PDX Lounge

Two things I'd rather it not be :/

Another strange observation- Swapped a COP back into the 2/3 one, car fired up fine, drove fine. Went to the gas station and while the car was off, but the key in the ON position, the CEL started flashing. I know it flashes when running under a severe misfire situation (as in your dumping raw fuel into the cat...you need to pull the fuck over). But I can't say I'd understand why it would flash when the car wasn't running/not getting any input from a running engine to determine a severe misfire.

Re: Official PDX Lounge

Probably a janky wiring harness. Or something going on in the ECU

Re: Official PDX Lounge

Added/edited post. But yes, I had originally swapped locations. The baffling part is having a normal idle, and then like unplugging the coil, it just happens.

Re: Official PDX Lounge

Sounds like a wiring or ECU issue. Swap COP 1/4 for 2/3 and see if it moves.

Re: Official PDX Lounge

Again, thank you for bringing those by!!

Now for the fun part. Swapped COPs and car fired right up normally. Went for a quick errand and all was good....until I got home and was waiting for the garage door to open. Misfire returned at idle. Decided to do a loop around the parking lot and under load it cleared up. Let the car idle for a moment and it returned. Pulled the connector off COP for cyl 2/3 and nothing changed. Swapped a couple of CPS' that were available, no change.

To add to the fun, when I initially worked on the problem, and swapped the COPS, the problem followed the COP, hence why the logical step was to replace the COP. But now it's back to having an issue at the original location. Could a bad plug somehow cause a COP to have issues? I'm confused.

Re: Official PDX Lounge

Well, a cheap set has been ordered online.....but given the sensitivity of needing to get around ASAP, if there is any way you can get them to me in the Hillsboro/Orenco area in the very near future, it was be unbelievably appreciated. I can return them to you when the new ones arrive. PM'ing you contact info.
