Symptom: My starts are long and slow, power decrease and surge and rare occasions it shuts off. My battery & alternator test ok.

You will need to remove the right side micor filter. Remove the clip for the micro filter housing (10mm bolt head). You will need a 5 or 4mm allen. Once you have the cover removed you will see the IPS module in fornt. to remove you will have yo pull the ECM out behind the IPS. then remove the IPS.
