Re: sick EF wagon

yeah we got told it could be a few things but we were told to put in injector cleaner first and try that and since we did the car seems to be running ok

Re: sick EF wagon

check the ISC & TPS, both impact on the car's performance when in gear.

ISC (Idle Stability Control?) = a cylinder thing on the throttle body, most likely full of mud & gunk
TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) = two plugs on the throttle body, they have 3 wires each coming out of them (black green & red from memory).
