Wooooo Hoooooo I love this place !

Update after months not weeks, months of searching for my hesitation problem I found it today. This afternoon I was determined to find the problem, searching high and low in the archives one person suggested checking the coolant temp. sensor, being the first time I heard this one-I went directly outside and under the hood to find the connector barely sitting on top of the sensor. Plugged her in and she is idling smooth and no hesitation--so far even under heavy acceloration. Man I love this place I am screaming right now and can hardly type. The best thing of all........I spent no dough

Such a great feeling to fix something so annoying so easily! Always nice to hear drbrandini!

I remember the last one of these I had was when I found several of the soft rubber lines going into the back of the ACC Servo were disconnected. plugged them in and bam! I had all of my ACC functions working instead of just hi-defrost. Thing have been alot more comfortable since then.

Regards,

I love those easy fixes too!

Like the time I found an oil leak near the rear of the cylinder head.

Changed that head gasket and presto! No more leak!

That was easy!

OK Brandon,

Can we both test out the newfound performance?

You bring your 300E and I'll bring the orange cones so we can autocross your car at Hilton Head
