2. p0401 clean my egr valve? any thoughts?
3. p0281.. i hope i guess that tells me i need a new injector..

The ficm was repaired 1 week ago by ficmrepair, and the voltage is right at 48.5 all the time on my insight. Im gonna pull the egr right now and post up a pic. Yes my batteries were unhooked for almost a full week.. And of corse the ficm was unhooked for the same amount of time.

Ah it must have only been viewable by you

the random 1000 code is lack of drivecycles and will go away

the cyl can be traced down by a Tech to see why the contribution is off

MKM seems ok but I would suggest Gearheads for the SCT and tunes

Yea i had gotten the gasket set a while back. And i think i did get cleaner in there... Not much though i just turned on the truck see if everything is ok. I did also find some moister in the hole where the egr valve goes, and the egr was surprisingly clean but did have very very little tan colored goo.. Egr delete and new oil filter im guessing? I cleared codes and the p0401 hasn't come back. Just p0281 is still there.
