Fixes & Summaries for Asian

|2009 Mazda 3 Mazdaspeed 2.3L Excessive Emissions, Poor Fuel Economy, MIL Lamp on
After 2 weeks the customer reports the egine light has not come back on after changing the a/f sensor. I do believe it will relight as long term fuel trims were hovering around -10 when it left. Trouble codes: P2188.
|1998 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GS 2.4L Poor Idle Quality, Cuts out, Stall VIN: 4A3AX35G3W
OK its fixed!!! Turns out that when the idle valve went out it back fed to the ECU and smoked some diodes. A "NEW" to the car ECU and a new idle valve fixed the problem. Thanks for the help. Trouble codes: P0505.
|2004 Nissan Maxima SL 3.5L Fault Mode VIN: 1N4BA41E44
