  1. Vacuum leak diagnosis suggestions

    i have a black sensor mounted on the firewall which i can't unplug or the engine stalls. (i think its the maf or map sensor.) spraying carb cleaner is more dangerous then the propane trick tough: the cleaner is more dense when sprayed but get bigger surface (burnable surface) then the propane...

  11. 4.9 wont start right away when sitting for more then a few hours

    might be leaking injectors (flooding the engine) then when you try the second time fuel was blown away, turn on ignition switch but don't try to run the engine, then turn off and check spark plugs. or maybe its the ecu relay having a small build up on the internal contacts (not sure just...

    my thought is clutch switch, try with a jumper on the both cables if that don't work might be in the steering column or the ignition switch

    i think that lmc sells them, comes with the indicator in the dash. i heard about people repairing with fish line (don't think its a good fix but could work)
