I pm'd u another solution.Two harnesses and three SBEC-2's? I actually already replaced the bushings. It felt like it kicked the shifter back when shifting into 3rd. Leave it to me to break an A568 in light daily driving...
I could easily do the 8v swap again (and the transmission at the same time). The 8v Spirit is running like a champ. But that's a complete mission failure. I went into this to get a DOHC setup. If I had any idea ahead of time how bad these cars are, I would have just gone with a Neon or another Altima.
U may be right about the T3."Did you check out the cam sensor?"
Yep, and I confirmed cam timing, too.
"The 3rd gear thing my Honda Prelude did when low on trans oil. check it?"
Just refilled it fresh on Monday.
"Or do the parts cannon. I'll bet it's the fpr ruptured diaphragm or the coil is dying."
Changed it twice, including taking the one from the 8v Spirit. I've got a pretty ridiculous inventory of spare parts for this car...........which goes with it to whoever buys it.....
I do genuinely appreciate the help guys. I'm with Donovan on this one. T3 was Dodge's mistake, which I made three times.
Maybe it pulls on the connector or the wiring makes it draw to many watts through it or it grounds all the sensors through it?The TPS connector is a regular problem on this harness, which baffles me since it's all virtually the same exact harness as SBEC. I've now stolen two SBEC TPS plugs to patch into SBEC-II harnesses, and both went bad (i.e., touch the plug slightly, and it loses connection). Meanwhile, I have NEVER had a bad TPS plug on ANY other Chrysler vehicle. Does it eat them?
It gave me a reason to sit down and relax before I tackle this huge pile of parts that came with the new project. I got some T3 adjustable Cam gears you can have too.pores over the diagrams Daaamn! Thank you so much! It looks like the VSS shares a reference voltage (I think). I should check the voltage to the sensor before and after plugging it in.
