Default Code P2187, P2177

Tonight, after leaving the gas station, my MS3 started to "chug" at rpms lower than 2500. After about 2 miles (just to get it home), the check engine light finally came on. I scanned the codes, got P2187 code and P2177 pending. I checked the gas cap and was on tight. Anybody have any ideas?

I have the MS CAI on, but that is the only mod. This has been on for almost 2 yrs.

I will be taking (or towing probably) to the dealer tomorrow morning, just thought I would check here if anybody else has noticed this problem. Any input would be appreciated.

The latest, but not so greatest....

Reset the ECU and replaced the CAI with the stock airbox. Now, the car will not start. It will fire, but not run more than 2 seconds.


ANY suggestions????????????????

Are you sure you reconnected the MAF sensor properly to the stock airbox? Because that's exactly what'll happen when you try to start it without the MAF sensor in most cases.

I am fairly sure it is correct. The way I see, it only can go on 2 different ways. I have the wires from the MAF running away from the front bumper.

I know when I got P2187 and when I put gas in it, it would run like crap for like 3 or 4 mins. It ended up being the purge control module was stuck open. They replaced it for free.

Turns out the high pressure fuel pump went bad. Getting it replaced at the moment.

Fuel pump was not the issue...turns out, the 93 octane pump actually had E-85 in the tank. Used the same pump many times before without issues. E-85 bad!!!
Trying to get the gas station to pay the repair bill; I bet this is going to be fun.

I'm sorry i have to throw a BIG STINK on this thread, i had the same exact problem with my car, they had my car for 6 days figured it was bad gas, though it's different in your case mvl.MS3, it indeed was the first O2 sensor once that O2 sensor was replaced , they reflashed the PCM along with a brand new Fuel pump life has been good to be ever since. Make sure they checked that O2 sensor.... Good luck to you.

Thanks for the info blackbird. so far, everything has been fine, but if something comes up, I will be sure to have the O2 sensor checked.

Did the gas station pay? I remember sometime last year a station in NJ on the turnpike had some really bad gas and cars were breaking down all over the place after leaving. The news made a huge deal out of it.
