Kristin Posted January 31, 2008 Share Posted January 31, 2008 So, for the last couple of weeks I've been doing work on my motor just to get the stupid thing running correctly. Check Engine light codes, out the ass... First it was the distributor. Replaced. Next, the 02 sensor. Replaced. Next, MAP sensor, Idle Control Valve, Throttle Position sensor just to name a few... BAM BAM BAM. Back to back. Now, after having my car undergo surgery several times in the past few weeks, installing a turbo and fixing these minor problems... the car is still running funky. Quirky. Still a check engine light. It's throwing the code 41. [HO2S Heater, which is located inside of the 02 sensor.] That code doesn't make any sense to me, considering the thing is brand new. ANYWAY, to make a long story...even longer.... My car lags when it starts, cold or not. The check engine light will not go off. The car blows the ECU fuse, relentlessly. I'll reset my computer and it won't blow for about five days... I'm thinking my ECU might be faulty. When I put the new distributor on, it was blowing fuses as soon as I turned the key in the ignition and the motor wouldn't turn over. It runs now, but for how long? I'm stumped. I can't figure out what the hell is causing it to blow fuses and lag. The reason I think it's the ECU is because before the distributor was replaced, it was throwing all sensor codes, that were related to the distributor... now its replaced, the computer was reset [because they hold memory] and still no change in action. Any ideas? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
