just a quick update, after the cleaning it has not turned off :)
that man, much appreciated probably runs better than before, after cleaning :)
i cleaned the throttle body and the idle valve really good, and it seems that it did the trick. hasnt turned off ever since that. i hope that this was what was causing it and its been resolved
sweet. ill give that a shot since i was gonna go get some of the throttle body cleaner after work anyways to go over the throttle body once again.
we might be looking at wrong part then lol mind circling it? :D
the long black tube? that part was loose when i bought the car, and i cleaned that part at that time, and havent touched it since. its kind of a pain in the ... to take off... if this is even the part that you are referring to...
no i havent. what is this part that you speak of?
thanks man, yes, once it shuts off, all the lights come on, i turn the key as it rolls, and starts right up. air intake and filter are clean. so, as of now i will drive it like this and hope it doesnt turn off again, if it does we will go more into it some more and look around. i looked under the AOS to see if theres anything loose or broken/torn, and couldnt see anything. But, it is greasy and oily around there all over, not sure what to look at and check where the stuff is coming from...
i did. looks all good. took the intake off and cleaned the throttle body good, WOW was that thing dirty. idle calmed down right away, and ran fine. since its so random when it turns off, ill have to drive around some more and see if it shuts off, drove for 25 or so miles and it was fine. could that have solved it?
yup, so it seems to be still shutting off once in a while randomly... only kinda corelation i can see is that its always once i have the clutch in and out of gear or ready to put it in the gear from another higher gear... dont know if that matters... anyone?
drove it all the way to work and back, not one time did it turn off or hesitate. of course, once i got home and was pulling into the driveway, it turned off again... grrrr
heres a quick pic of the parts (fasteners) that were loose (circled in red, actually they on the other side, but still hehe) i hope the pic shows up, i usually use tinypic but im at work and cant so i uploaded it
i opened the cover to unplug the MAF and noticed that those clamps on rubber boots were reallllly loose on one side, tightened them up and it runs much better. seems to be a bit of vacum leak i only drove it for alittle bit and it seems to be much better. will report tomorrow after a drive to work. BTW, when i unplug the MAF, the car jsut shuts right off....
gotya. then i will disconnect it and take it for a spin and see what happens.
ok, ill be home later on tinight and try it. what will this test figure out? if the MAF is faulty? or?
