Sucks that your CEL came on, my car was running lean before installation and the light turned off afterward. Which is always awesome, one less thing to worry about.

How many miles on your car?I really think it may be the PCV hose........if you cleaned the MAF as good as you say!

140+

Funny thing was Orangello never gave me these kinds of problems, and she had 240k on her...... /me sad face

But Im determined to get Pat running right.

Some other stuff I read indicated it could be fuel filter, but he runs so awesome when you press the accelerator.....

I also found a bunch of other stuff about the PCV hose collapsing.

I hope I don't have to do what ferret did in that pic he graciously shared just to change my PCV....

dude much tanx!! you are reafirming a lot of what I read from that link one of you guys gave me.

Funny, the CEL was NOT on when I left the house Friday afternoon and did not register at all whenI drove home in the middle of the night. Go figure. Im not thinking its fixed. Im checking the hose and the PCV.. Again you guys are awesome!!!!!!



Update: NO CEL since Friday, still going to look at the PCV and hose.
