      Check fuses. This might help, but from my experience, these diagrams are never 100% correct so be prepared to pull all of your fuses and inspect them all http://home.comcast.net/~jeri534/fuses.pdf

      P0305 == misfire on cyl5. Swap that plug and coil pack for another cyl (let's say 1). If you start to get P0301, it's either bad pack or plug. Continues being P0305, check wiring to the pack.

      When you clear the CEL without "fixing" anything, it will run fine for a while, sure. But after a while the ECU decides that the MAP is giving too much bad data, and eventually it stops trusting it...

      I am OP. I cleaned plenum, throttle body, and MAP about 15k miles ago. No CEL came back. But for what it's worth, I also have UM tune with a specific P0106 fix. The issue came back after the tune,...

      Given the choice between a legal and illegal kit, many people would opt for the legal one. Even if it costs a few more bones.

      "Statistically" speaking... you'll just have chain rattle "forever." And "forever" in this case is defined as "until your chain jumps."

      I had similar "P2275: O2 Sensor Signal Stuck Rich bank1 Sensor3" . Replacing the sensor fixed the issue. P2195 refers to bank 1, sensor 1. So yes, this is the first O2 sensor downstream.

      Oil and crap gets in there from PCV recirc. I popped off my MAP recently and blew it out with some compressed air. Also removed the TB and cleaned it out, as well as a bit of the intake. I didn't pop...

      Two values will appear.

      The first one is miles or km until next service (only displays in multiples of 100). The second (with a clock) is how many days. Which ever hits "0" first is when you...

      Those things are a scam. Don't buy one. Don't even think about it.

      Don't.

      You can probably create more boost by drilling a hole into your intake manifold, running a bendy straw from the hole to...

      I've never heard the term "EMS Light," so I'm assuming it's the same as a CEL or MIL.

      Anyways, you've said that you know that the lamp is illuminated because of your test pipe. What were the DTCs...

      Valve cover contains no electronics. The part you linked is the correct part to purchase if replacing the valve cover or PCV (which is integrated into the valve cover).
