    Engine Stalling At Closed Loop

    Check to see if your map sensor is plugged in.

    Free V8 OBDII Scan Tool

    I did get it to work, but it was a PITA. I had to force windows to remove the new drivers and replace it with old drivers that i knew would work with the cable. If you need i can forward a copy to you.
  3. No simple way. Its a pain. I think Lotus installed the wiper motor and the foglights first, then built the car around those items. Most of the underside plastic ends up being removed or loosened. If i remember right i started by taken off the left and right side underside shield first then was able to remove the center section.

    A/C COMPRESSOR CLUTCH BEARING

    Wayne, I replaced the compressor on my 2002. The part number is CS0052 from Rock auto at 179 bucks. New not rebuilt. Not worth screwing around with. By the way I replaced the compressor without lifting or touching the engine. Takes patience but can be done. Tony
  5. I was looking at your instructions and they are very helpful. One question though. I dont see the microwave sensor anywhere on these diagrams. Where is it wired to?
  6. There was a very good write up here awhile back on how to replace our system with a TOAD system. Was looking at it my self just to get rid of the cobra. Actually i found the link. Here it is.

    Bush Tool

    I made my own using a 1 1/4" copper DWV pipe. then using something the shape of a cone I flared it by using a hammer and driving the cone into the pipe. worked perfectly.

    Possible timing belt break?

    The best compressor I found for my car was from rock auto. Was not a rebuilt and a direct drop in for the v8. Was able to take it out without even lifting the engine. Look at Rock Auto and use part number CS0052.
  9. Check the charging light in the dash board. if the light is burnt out no charging will take place. Ask me how I know that one!
  10. I could verify it by looking at the service manual of the GM cars that the ECM came out of. The S300 had the electronic speedo so the pulses should be right. What i would do before you take it out is drive the car on the highway in 5th gear at 3000 rpm and see what speed corresponds to that. Then you can see what the new speedo shows at the same rpm in 5th.
  11. the 1993 Esprit that i had already had the wire from the ECU to the back of the dash. It just was not being used. you will have to look at the ECU diagram and find the pinout for the speedometer and see if it is occupied by the wire. The wire is orange and brown the position on the ecm is J2-B8. take a look at page 757 of the parts and service book that you can download and you will see the speedo in the diagram.

    code 26 error

    This is a older gm OBD1 system. if you do a quick search you can find out which pins to short out. there is no 26a or 26 code. its all 26. as far as i remember if the secondary injectors short out you will get a code 26. Unfortunately on my car the only way to fix it was replace the secondary injectors and the ecm. ecm is easily available. the cal pak is not. DO NOT give up your ECM you need the cal pak in it to put into the new ECM. The ECM part number from GM is 1228708 https://www.amazon.com/ACDelco-1228708-Engine-Control-Module/dp/B000C9D2T0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1489023447&sr=8-1&keywords=1228708
  14. i am looking for the original color of the OZ Nova wheels. Is the crystal titanium being said here the original color? If so, does anyone know the color code and what company the paint is from. I had mine refinished and the color match was terrrible.

    Wheel refurbish : color choice ?

    hello, sorry to bring up a old thread. i am looking for the original color of the OZ Nova wheels. Is the crystal titanium being said here the original color? If so, does anyone know the color code and what company the paint is from. I had mine refinished and the color match was terrrible.
