thats what i thought but someone posted something about non-cali slpit shows in a 97 a while back so i wanted to be sure.
cliffs notes version: its been running great for two weeks, thought it was fixed. once again as of this morning, completely random no start, started out as crank and no fire, but immediate second turn of the key it woudl fire. not that way anymore. its not batteries, glows, fuel fitler, starter, cps or gpr. im convinced its a sensor or electric related. seems when its warm (as in been running) it wont happen. mostly just happens at ambient temp, that is IF it happens. it could be 80* out and not start. i unplugged the icp no news. here is another thing that makes me think electric or sensor. when its cranking there is no attempt to run, little white smoke if any, actually not really any. on occasion, and rare one at that, it will sorta act like it tried to fire on one cylinder. and i mean sorta, and there will be a puff of white. so i feel the injectors arent firing.
here is where i am now
1. icp, ipr, pcm, idm or a relay.
2. fpr screen which ill check tonight (forgot all about this)
3. find someone with AE or have it towed, but who knows how it will act when it gets to the mechanic? it will most likely fire right up.
