  1. here is the link http://www.ebay.com/itm/322503189165?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT might try it out and will report back!
  2. anyone ever even attempted to use a 6 pin OBD1 to OBD2 converter to read codes on a OBD2 device?
  3. another way to make sure the latch aligns perfectly is taking out the grille, letting the hood down slowly and look through the actual hole from underneath with a mirror - you will be able to exactly determine the point of contact , how far it needs to be adjusted and aligned!. that was the easiest fix for me.
  4. update time.... so, for a week, everything was peachy....drove about 100 miles since installing the new pump...today, car died in idle...started up right away, smelled gas...kept driving home and stopped another 10 times at lights and intersections...idle was ok, not rough or fluctuating... damn, and I thought its fixed...every day, something new thoughts>? injectors?
  5. Hey Mark! I always do! LOL...too bad you are so far away - we should have a coffee and talk tc!
  6. well, whaddayaknow....took the tc for a spin and I have to say , surgery was successful! no more hesitating, no more rpm fluctuations. much more responsive! oh, and no more codes! guess the fuel pump ( which does not give any codes for failing) causes other components to show codes ( map showed code 14 for electrical issue...) I am glad its done....
  7. lets see how the tc behaves tomorrow....I'll report back! thanks hemi! as usual!~
  8. took me 3.5 hours to get it all done...( of course, complications, brittle fuel lines had to be exchanged, tank dropping took forever...blabla... old pump looks pretty corroded and was not the original pump......tank looks pretty good, debris wise...put everything back together...2 cranks...bam..for now, looks like that was the issue...idle is smooth! will take it for a ride tomorrow.
  9. Hey Hemi! look at the video I added to my first post!..TC starts with no issues, even when engine died. hesitates when accelerating, drives ok when driving..as soon as I stop at a traffic light, RPM goes down to around 500...fluctuates...and 5 out of 10 times, it dies...fuel pump was supposed to arrive today but didnt...will give feedback of this mission asap.
  10. well, thats absolutely true...
  11. checked VAC lines, no gas smell, no gas in line..fuel pressure reg, is brandnew.checked MAP connections, Vac lines ok, wires&plug ok and snug. Btw..MAP sensor is also almost brandnew..thats why I was confused by error 14 for it!! fuel pump is on its way from rockauto...did not order AIS module yet...that and fuel injectors are the last resort.. checked VAC lines, no gas smell, no gas in line..fuel pressure reg, is brandnew.checked MAP connections, Vac lines ok, wires&plug ok and snug.

  12. Gentleman! another day, another issue....( see video) I changed fuel pressure regulator, plugs, cables, rotor&cap, fuel filter, MAP, I get codes 12 and 14 ( points to MAP) very rough idle , then dies...my only other idea is either the fuel pump or the AIS... what do you think? TC dies.MOV
  13. thanks for the input....look at this http://remanns.com/getprice.php a rebuilt engine for 2150!...I was quoted 1650 for the calve job.....
  14. so many options: rebuilt engine, remanufactured engine, different engine ( as in swapping an old 3.0 L Mitsubishi 6G72 V6 for the 2.2 Turbo engine) .... my 1990 TC runs but is in need of a valve job and has an oil leak that I was not able to find...has 107kmiles on it and the previous owner already swapped the transmission.... if a rebuilt engine is not much more than a valve job....I might consider that... thoughts?
  15. found him...thanks for the info....
