I get that. In the end, you'll have precisely what you want. Which is good.

Yup.... once I get all these little things fixed.... took it out for a spin amid the lockdown and my traction control and abs lights kicked on while on the highway. Ive read abs sensor possibly, or even the friggin MAF?!?!?!?! Im wondering if the sensor wires got messed up or pulled loose during driving, I dont have the factory brackets for them so I zip tied them to the upper sway bar link bold (on the outside.... away from the link itself) something........ I'll have to look.



Also still looking at the CEL, right now I have a P2187 and another that I cant recall so far I have done the following.


Cleaned MAF sensor
replaced spark plugs,

Replaced the purge solenoid valve (which mine was squared and not the rounded one like everyone else's it seems.


Next to replace is the fuel cap which doesn't click when tightened so it might be the culprit



and will need to check for vacuum a leak somewhere.... is there a home grown way of doing this without going crazy and spending a ton of loot for a Mech to diagnose?


Also heard intake manifold gaskets could be the problem but not sure hot to check that either.


Any help would be greatly appreciated!!



Thanks,
Mud

No siggy needed.

Wish I knew what to look for. Too bad several of the members who performed swaps and wrote up a lot of the details haven't logged in for a while. I haven't been on as much because I've been WFH since mid-March and keep working 11-hour days. That's mostly due to a backlog of work, which should lighten up soon.
