Re: '87 IROC cutting up again
Okay, guys...did the "tap test" and the idle didn't change, so I took the car out and really leaned on it--trying to get it to act up. I drove it hard for several miles, and the Check Engine light flickered just as I pulled into my driveway. So I put the new MAF sensor on. The car started up with the new sensor, ran about a minute and cut off. After the 3rd time cutting off, it ran like a watch with the new sensor. I drove it a few miles and everything was great, so I'm driving it to work tomorrow. I didn't disconnect the battery cable when I changed the sensors--could that have fooled the computer for a bit with the new sensor, then it read everything was okay? Also, where is the MAF sensor relay, and could it be the culprit if it does act up again? I really, really appreciate all the feedback I've gotten on this. Thanks again, guys.
