Coolant temp sensor (CIS/EZL)
I think I may have finally figured out what is plaguing my car.
I was working on the 16-vlv last night down @ RC Imports & was trying to troubleshoot where my power loss & sporadic start problem are coming from.
Here's my question. On the coolant temp sensor for the 16-vlv has two leads. When the leads are pulled during idle the car should stumble & the idle should act weird.
When I pull mine the idle stays constant. I looked at the schematics for these leads. Both green wires, one w/ a red trace & the other black. Apparently there are four (X48) diodes soldered in somewhere on these wires. I am assuning that one is the R/16 and the other three I am unsure of...
With a failed diode in line would it be possible to be getting feedback through the diode which in turn would cause incorrect signals to each unit?
