Hey it's fun. Trouble is it reminds me of some State smog test.
A million years back, "What is the Black box used for?' Well if you were a VW guy you knew. The Computer.
GM, Ford , and any one else who didn't work on VW was screwed.
Another one was. Find the ground for the Oxygen sensor. It was a Ford wiring diagram. If you didn't know Ford called it a EGO or a HEGO, screwed again.
I believe that is why we now have a "Composite Vehicle"
Hey keep it up, it's fun. The Oh shit I know it, what the F is it, I have replaced it, is kind of fun to me.
Life will give you rope. It will give you enough to make a ladder to pull yourself up, or an noose to hang yourself with.
I don't know if I should be hijacking this thread or making one of my own, but I LOVE these!
OK, 2001 Saturn with an intermittent "miss" or "loss of power" or whatever...I looked and looked and test drove and couldn't find anything, so I gave the car back and told the customer that the next time it happens do this and bring the car back to me. No waiting period for old-schoolers, let 'er rip.
I had a Lincoln come in with intermittent loss of power and no DTCs, but I finally figured out that the tires weren't all the same size, and the stability system was right on the edge of triggering while accelerating ... sometimes it did, sometimes it didn't.
