    Re: Changing the fuel filter

    You can use a socket/ratchet as these are banjo bolts. 6 point sockets will offer the best grip (if available). Open end wrench is good for back-up. Tim

    I'm fairly confident it's your ECU, but there's not an easy way to be 100% sure until you swap it. Now that you have hundreds of dollars on the line I certainly hope I made the right call. My...

    Re: Idle adjustment question

    I can't read that (too small). Idle speed is set in neutral or park. The service manual calls out 700 rpm for manual transmission and 750 for automatic. It's not a super critical thing to have it...

    It's always a good idea to perform tests and follow the manual. I think it's an ECU because it's flashing code while running, but no code is recorded. Also that VSV is controlled by the ECU and it's...
