Nothing

Did you disconnect the battery to reset EEC system? so idle will readjust "learn"

Best Answer

Yes for about 2 minutes should I go longer?

Do you think it could be the TPS or MAF

11,045

Yes, TPS is next suspect, then possible MAF but without using a good scanner to confirm I don't like throwing parts at a vehicle.. Just clean the MAF. When you have the battery cables DISCONNECTED both positive and negative touch them together no need to wait.

Ok will update post when I have a conclusive answer thanks

Don't know if this is anyhow related but my leaking gas cap light came on replaced it erased the code then my radiator starts leaking what the hell
