it does this wierd thing where it feels like you turn the key off and then back on really quick but it has never stalled out completely i replaced the coil pack, and the engine speed sensor, i also tryed a new ignition switch. the new engine speed sensor seemed to fix the problem for a day or so, and then it did it again this afternoon. i dont know what is going on, i figured maybe one of you guys might have had a problem like this before, any ideas would be very helpful.
Thanks
Stuart

Re: Help! I think its dying (Iceman666)

Re: Help! I think its dying (BigStuster)

the codes ran on my car were the same as before i replaced my engine speed sensor, it was basically saying that it was eitherthe sensor or my ecu, i replaced the sensor and it is still doing it, so i would imagine that it is the ecu. if anyone knows of ANYTHING else it could be please let me know, or if anyone knows of a good place to buy an ecu for cheep, please let me know.
thanks
