      You could have a damaged ecu, or injector wiring that is shorted to ground somewhere, unplug that injector, turn the key on and use a volt meter across the injector plug terminals and see if it reads 12v across the pins, it shouldn't of course.
    • Put in UV dye in coolant, run 5 minutes, and use a UV light pointing there to rule out coolant leak.
    • CKOPOCT reacted to CrackedDSM's post in the thread What's your "sell it now" price? with Like Like.
      New cars suck, man. I love my edge. It’s comfortable, it rips(12’s in a heavy crossover pig suv rips idc what anyone says), but nothing replaces the DSM. It’s nice for a daily but once they’re out of warranty the dumbest f*****g things are...
    • I'll check on the shop. It's supposedly on 55 between Tullahoma and Manchester. Guy told me he's done a number of Subis and Hondas, so not new to the Japanese import scene as a machinist and builder. Might not be on the high performance side like...
    • Then it sounds like you could use the cash, either for the GSX or a different daily.
    • Where in Tennessee are you? I am near Nashville and hear there's a shop near Tullahoma that has built a number of imports, and he's good. Old, but good.
    • There are several options you can consider: A) replace your power antenna so it works (probably the nylon cord is broken - very common)B) buy an internal antenna. These attach to the interior (dash, windshield, rear deck) and are a decent...
    • Well... question for me is: do you like the GSX enough to keep it for a good, long time? If so, consider keeping the GST. It can be a source of cheap (free) parts, especially in a time when our parts are hard to come by. Use it as a cann car so...
    • CKOPOCT replied to the thread 2G AC blower motor.
      It is also possible that your blend door isn't sealing well, allowing air to he diverted to the floor.When I took the dash off my 97 last year and pulled all the ducting apart I found that the sponge seals around the doors and ducting had...
    • CKOPOCT reacted to luv2rallye's post in the thread 2G AC blower motor with Like Like.
      1g/2g DSM's don't have cabin air filters. You can remove the motor/cage to see if there are obstructions in there (leaves, mice, etc) or excessive dirt on the fan blades obstructing air flow. However my blower motor never did blow very well even...
    • CKOPOCT replied to the thread 420A Radio not working.
      So all fuses are good (checked with a multimeter/bulb vs. eyeballs) and no visible breaks or disconnects. At this point, 'twer I you, I would begin by checking power at the source and at the points where the two fuses blew. It really sounds like...
    • CKOPOCT reacted to 1990TSIAWDTALON's post in the thread 2G I just need help with Like Like.
      You all can flame me, but I run my White GSX with a unrecirculated BOV and she doesn't give me any problems. Drives good, no hesitation, no gripes at all but it is on ECMLink and tuned so that may make a difference. I just didn't want the OP to...
    • CKOPOCT replied to the thread 2G I just need help.
      For your fans you can just run power through your toggle switch to a relay. Use the relay to route power to your fans. Reason for the relay is the fans will draw too much power for the toggle's wiring to handle - wire fires in the dash suck. Plus...
    • CKOPOCT replied to the thread 420A Radio not working.
      You say this problem occurred when your shifter broke loose. Was the single din stereo factory? If not (or maybe even if so) perhaps the stereo's wiring was routed around or through the shifter cables instead of being isolated and distant...
    • I would start by checking grounds. The Clifford system shouldn't of itself cause this issue, unless the PO wired it wrong. Enev then it shouldn't be intermittent... which is why I say check your grounds - specifically to the ecu. With 1/2 of the...
    • The problem would seem to be that you have either excessing draw on the engine with the a/c engaged (bad compressor bearings, belt is too tight, compressor having to work too hard, bad electric fans drawing more power than a weak alternator can...
    • 100 is the low service limit for compression. Your numbers should be up above 150 (ideally 180-220). With what you are describing sounds like a head gasket. At 180k miles there could be more going on as well (rings, valve guides, etc.). A...
    • CKOPOCT replied to the thread General 1991 eclipse 2.0 nt.
      So you are running a race car off an unmodified stock ecu? No DSMLink and not a stand alone unit?
    • Just measure the resistance of the CTS in place with the car at ambient. Look at the table posted; if it's close to what it should be at that temp you are good to go. What causes serious trouble is a shorted or open sensor -- most commonly a...
    • CKOPOCT replied to the thread 2G Looking to upgrade turbo.
      Be aware that while there isn't much you can't do with the 2g platform, your goals and your wallet need to have a serious conversation. For example, the fwd manual transmission can't withstand more than about 400hp before stuff starts to break...
