Take that back...MAYBE you did cause that.
If the problem seems to be cumulative, meaning it didnt show at first, - AND
it starts well enough when cold- your engine is maybe not getting up to heat
enough, assuming this is the 1st gen EFI system. Combination of engine
coolant temp sensor marginal.
Your ECU never goes into closed loop and always runs rich... the EGO sensor
never looked at because it's always warming up.
Just a wild guess, like I say and would require some other marginal
There is NO reason to lower the engine temp!
Causes increased oil sludging, and MAYBE what you see there.
