What else could it be? I just replaced one 02 sensor, battery, and the alternator within the past two weeks....

1 Answer


Not to be a smart ass but u have water someplace its not suppose to be and water can even stay in a distributer for weeks no matter how long you drive... .. Honestly I have no idea if wd40 is conductive or not I would get some connection cleaner and go over your connections again... Also check you didn't get water in your intake folder box or filter itself, also it wouldn't hurt to check and see if you knocked a vaccine line loose soneplace
