    ECMlink 2g Random hesitation while cruising

    I see it stalled when you came to a stop in the second log. Need to do a tps adjust as it sits at .67 & throttle% is 1% so idle switch isn't working and not turning off injectors when you come to a stop.

    Well with the slave removed it will just move back and forth freely between the clutch fingers and the transI’d have to Jack my car up to see.

    1g build - The Real Life Trials and Tribulations of building a DSM

    So you did shim the pivot ball. Hmmm I don’t think there should be any movement on the fork with slave installed. I’ll double check mineEdit there’s no play in the fork. I can not push it to the left but obviously can push it the right (back into the slave)

    1g build - The Real Life Trials and Tribulations of building a DSM

    No pilot bearings in manual dsms, only autos. @Anfurnyy only thing left is shim the pivot ball or play in the pedal assembly. Fork seems to be dead center to me. Have you tried to back the pivot ball out?

    1G Help Diagnosing No Start

    So your issue now is crank, no start and you have fuel pressure and spark? After you crank the engine, smell the plugs. It should smell like fuel. Try spraying starter fluid in the IM to see if it starts.Do you have another CAS you can try? In your log, timing is stuck at 5* but I'm not...

    1G Help Diagnosing No Start

    You have no fuel pressure? There’s no other way for the fuel to get in your manifold. Is it possible you have the injector wires crossed? What does the gauge read when you turn the pump on?

    1G Help Diagnosing No Start

    If you turned the pump on via link and you see fuel in the intake manifold, you have a stuck open injector or leaking fpr as mentioned above.

    Orca - 11 sec street rippa

    I've been hunting down lots of issues with the car and pretty much got ALMOST everything sorted out and I mean a lot. The latest issue to be resolved is that when the cooling fan would turn on, the idle would go low and idle seemed to surge ever so slightly. Did a BLT, check all grounds and...

    Yes speed bleeder. Bleeding brakes isn’t a big deal but the slave is such a pain

    1g build - The Real Life Trials and Tribulations of building a DSM

    The master is leaking for sure so get that fixed as well. As far as welding the pedal, I’d check if it has play since it seems like a pain to remove from what I’ve read. And grab a self bleeder. They’re only $10 and is so much easier because of the location of the bleeder on the 1gs.

    There are two different bore size for the slave. Got to post #392https://www.dsmtuners.com/threads/gstwithpsi-galant-vr4-1837-of-2000.482807/page-16#post-153750177So you have a bad slave?

    2G Front mount

    @pauleyman are you sure 1g & 2g kits are the same? I’m thinking it has to be slightly different at least from IC to throttle body including the bov. I see kits for sale that say it’s for a 1g or 2g

    2G HELP NEEDED BELTS (solved)

    All good we’re here to help. If the harmonic balancer looks old, replace it because it will not be a good day if/when it comes apart. Same goes for the timing belt. There will be no warning if/when these fail.
  20. TK's9d2TSi

    2G HELP NEEDED BELTS (solved)

    Yes. To put it on when you get it, you’d just have to remove the alt belt.
  21. TK's9d2TSi

    2G HELP NEEDED BELTS (solved)

    Yes. You have p/s belt, alt & wp share the same belt, lastly ac belt. 3 accessory belts in total.
  22. TK's9d2TSi

    2G HELP NEEDED BELTS (solved)

    Yup check the harmonic balancer. You’ll lose ps, water pump and alternator AND POSSIBLY JUMP TIMING if it ate up you timing cover. I did a 2g 4g63 recently and you can’t pull the harmonic balancer without removing the d/s engine mount as there isn’t enough room. What engine is this?

    Howdy Everybody

    It should work better since clear bra adhesive is stronger than plastdip so I’d imaging it would work well. But I haven’t tried it myself :idontknow:Obviously you don’t want to put piping hot water on some parts lol
  24. TK's9d2TSi

    Howdy Everybody

    Welcome! Recently watched ammo’s video and he was having the same issue with a clear bra. Boil some water and pour it over the area worked great.

    White with some flakes looks sick. Check out motionautotv on YT. They just painted evo/lancer wagon that color and it looks amazing. Black is a very hard color to keep clean

    ECMlink Difficulties adjusting idle

    And that's fine. But at one point his STFT was -1x and that value was moved into LTFT so his idle is off a bit.

    I'm biased because I like new shinny things so I'd go respray.

    1G Window trims... longshot

    Think the only problem with undercoating is that it probably doesn't have any uv protection so it would fade easily.

    All looks good to me also You can use excel to figure it out voltage offset easier. Jump to 8:40.

    1G Window trims... longshot

    Is it the one that's on the outside bottom of the window/top of door panel? Yeah they all get brittle and cracks. it's metal underneath so you can remove what you can and paint them or try wrapping them.

    ECMlink Difficulties adjusting idle

    Hmm I’ve always used combinedFT (as per link demo video) to dial in deadtime. Just like a lot of other things, there’s more than one way to skin a cat.Below is from links wiki pagehttps://www.ecmtuning.com/wiki/fueltrimupdatepointsThe ECU will also watch what's going on with the short term...

    Don’t have my laptop now. Wasn’t his combinedFT -10%? And doesn’t STFT move into LTFT at a certain point? I can post a log of my LTFT changing at idle.

    Props to you @iugrad92turbo 🙏🙏🙏. For anyone that’s looking for a replacement AND has an extra radiator fan, you can use the thermoswitch connector off the radiator fan that goes into the radiator. It uses the same plug.

    NEEDS BISS adjustment & its RICH Once it's fully warmed up, turn the biss screw slowly until iscposition is around 30 with all electronics off including fans. This will take a minute as the fan turns on and off. It's still rich based on LTFT. You want all your fuel trims close to zero (+/- 2%)...

  43. TK's9d2TSi

    ECMlink 2G V3 first time user setting up

    If all the setting are correct and the car still doesn’t start, spray some starter fluid in the IM and see if it starts. If it does, you can increase crankingfueladjust which is only active for a few seconds during startup.

    You’ll want a kit for a 2g. The difference is the piping routing as they have different radiator support between the 1g and 2g

    1G Starting problem.

    One line goes to the water pipe and the other to the back of the thermostat housing. Take one off and put it to the other. Compression test will test how much pressure you build in a cylinder. Leak down test will tell you where the compression is leaking to. If you’re not seeing smoke, it’s not...

    1G Starting problem.

    Loop the lines to the heater core and see if you still gets low. You have to pull the dash to get to the heater core. Eric Tande did a great YT video and his channel is Velocity Lab.
