  10. Nic,after all the things we have done,we learned valuable info,not only for me and you,but everyone on the reatta net.When someone else hits the point of frustration we have ,we can help someone solve their problem.WHAT A GREAT SITE AND GROUP OF PEOPLE!
  11. Nic,it worked,at least I think it has.I changed the out the ecm,mem-cal and all saturday.This morning it started on first try.What a great sound,not like before,try to start then maybbe the second or third time start.but the very first time,wow,weeeee.WILL LET YOU KNOW IF THERE IS A CHANGE,BUT FOR NOW,GREAT.
  12. Sorry from all of us here,we feel for you in times like this.Hope you will forgive and understand that we share your interest in the reatta and just want to see what has you so happy.SO WHEN THINGS COOL DOWN AND YOU GET TIME WE ALL WILL BE HERE FOR YOU.
  13. nic,for a long time I fought the same problem and like you I thought I had solved the problem by doing almost as much as you had done.but to no avail,the problem came back and started to get worse.I would also like to try the same thing with the mem-cal.Can these still be purchased new or is that the reason you got one from Jim finn.Any way am glad to see someone else with the determination to not let a car problem keep you from enjoying the car we both love so much,sometimes?
  14. Hi,finally found the problem.After rulling out the tranny and motor and all the front end,brkes,tires,ect.I had it up on my freinds rack looking it over and it was right in front of me,the motor mounts.I called napa and had the mounts delivered.While at it got the tranny mount as well.Took about two hours to change out.Took it for a spin and so far so good.Will let everyone know in a few days but I think that cured the problem.The old ones looked worn but not broken.
