Also a bad ipr or ipr o-rings could cause that too is the CEL light on? Did it loose power? Does it fall on its face? I'll get those pics posted tomorrow.
It has lost some get up and go yes, but not really a dog. No CEL on it EVER. The only other symptom this unit has is that occasionally the brand new E4OD tranny will freak out and go into limp mode, but I have been told by the installer that it's probably due to the engine not running properly. I take that with a grain of salt because yes, it's not putting out its potential power HOWEVER it shouldn't throw it off enough to cause the tranny to go into limp mode. I am suspecting the tone ring on the diff. The Speedo bounces a little while moving and I've already replaced the VSS. I'd like to eliminate the poor idle and keep the tranny from blowing itself into pieces slam shifting.
thanks for your help. I'll see if I can find that behind the compressor - next question if I unplug it and it runs better is it bad to run it with it unplugged until I get the part on it?
