Re: Code 45, o2 Sensor, Rich Exhaust
Man I been dorking with this thing and posting here for ideas for upwards of 2 months with <strike>little to</strike> no progress.
hell I even bought another beater to relieve the stress of having a crappy running s10 and my replacement car ate its transmission last weekend, so I'm convinced the universe is plotting against me.
One factor that puzzles me is that when at idle if I quickly rev the engine, like snap rev; the idle comeback is less and less until it chokes and dies, every other vehicle that you do that on will either steady ramp up rev or respond per rev and keep steady idle.
Today I'm reseating the TB gasket, checking fuel pressure, replacing cap and rotor (again), checking ground straps, checking/setting timing, then I suppose I'll just eat the 10MPG to reno and back for a replacement tranny for my toyota.
87 S-10 Blazer 4x4 - 2.8l 4spd automatic - 2door - - 206xxx = possible rebuild
87 Toyota Tercel 4wd wagon - 3a 1452cc (1.5l) SOHC - 5spd standard - - 221xxx
78 Dodge M500 (10 ton HD chassis) 30 foot RV - 440-3 4bbl - 727 loadflite high torque 3 spd auto - - 29xxx miles
80% of time is working, 12% sleeping, 4% eating, 3% dreaming and 1% enjoying the fruits of 99% of my time.
