oil pressure gauge is absolutely floored, no movement at all. and the temp is through the roof on cold start
both single wires?? are you thinking what im thinking?
anyway ive already replaced and repaired the necessary vacuum connections. What i really need to do is get the three delete plates. whats funny is the evap purge line is run over a foreign frame over the intake manifold due to foreign vehicle donor for the swap... as far as shoebox's site goes, well im pretty sure im there more often than here. Needless to say great job, praise be to he that enableth the would-be mechanic.
But the main concern here is the incorrect o2 sensor readings burning up twice my gas and my driveline vibration. The first HAS to be a pre-sensor leak. i have had exhaust leaks on other vehicles, but never any that caused me problems like this. ill hit those bolts with pb blaster right away. thank god for making your own schedule. if my leak is not the manifold gasket then ill probably be letting the next owner have fun with that. and those bolts had better not give me much trouble.
for the driveline vibration, ive read that i could take awhile to diagnose actually. What i know is that it is not congruent with RPM. tells me to look from tranny back. Im starting with the mounts but if they appear to be fine i will rotate the driveshaft 180 degrees assuming its easier than changing plugs and wires with stock manifolds. I read that that sometimes the steel driveshafts can become unbalanced and potentially be cured by the rotation. perhaps i should even look for an aluminum replacement. Somebody else i described it to said he was sure it was my rear differential. To that i say...no. simply out of my element and definitely not worth my time to learn. i have more money to make working my job than working on the car (which has come out on top for a few weeks now). Thoughts?
Injuneer you have been instrumental in helping me work on my own vehicle this past year, especially with this thread, taking the time to read my data logs and translate car to human for me. anybody that doesnt seriously consider your advise is a damn idiot. plainly stated. you and shoebox are the heart of the fourth gen community here, who knows what kinds of exchanges would be left uncorrected?
