  • SPI Not Idling when Warm

    My '96 SPI was running lean so I went through and replaced all of vacuum lines since they were all cracked. Once I did that it seems to run better at all speeds except once warm and at idle. The fuel trap is not clogged as I can blow through it. Tonight I replaced the plugs and ensured a proper gap to see if that would help but it didn't. Thoughts or suggestions?

    Ecu

    Did you disconnect the ECU when you replaced the vacuum lines? Doing that can foul up a few things. I think someone (Mark H. perhaps) in the club has a machine/device to calibrate the ECU or reset it. Good luck.
    It's all part of life's rich tapestry.

      Nope, everything stayed connected. I've talked to Mark about using it, we just haven't worked out a time/date yet.

          Most of what I have read about is that they tend to run rich not lean. Often that's vacuum, fuel trap or the lambda sensor.

            i got together with Mark but the scanner wasn't working. Does anyone else have one? Maybe meet at the club meeting this month? Without the scanner the next thing I'll replace is the o2/lambda sensor.
