You're probably running very rich at that altitude. Not enough air molecules and it is throwing off the air:fuel ratio. Should get better when you descend. You're car will adjust eventually. If you...

Are you sure you are running on all cylinders? No CEL? Could you have blown your head gasket? It doesn't take much. Also, 11,000 feet altitude can certainly cause an issue until your ecu adjusts.

My best advice would be to go to a dealer service dept around lunchtime and try to schmooze up a tech. They can do it on the side for you. The dealer won't touch it.

No, thankfully it was the 4.0L V6. Piece of cake. I heard all about the Triton engines and having to re tap the threads and and/or add inserts. What a nightmare just to change plugs.

I have widows 7 and 8. I didn't know about the XP emulation mode. I got so frustrated that I started looking around for someone to do it. I may try it again now that I know. Thanks!

Yeah I got a p0600 CEL that I need to get rid of to pass inspection. I wish it was just the tranny light because then I could just take the bulb out and pass inspection.

Can't just "short" the computer on an OBDII E36 to get rid of the CEL. You either have to take it to a dealer, who are 99.9% going to want nothing to do with it. Or, you can find a specialty shop who...

Check for vacuum leaks, you may have knocked something loose or forgot to put something back. Check the intake boot first.

Hey Bullhead, I just moved to Nashville a couple months ago. There are a couple of nice E30's and E36's on Nashville CL if you haven't looked already.

It would be in the box with all the other relays. My guess is that you fried the starter. Take it out, put it on the bench and run battery power to it and see if it works. You can also try swapping...
