looks like too much fuel, which could be from a faulty afm reading.

not sure why the coolant sensor beig unplugged makes it run, unless it runs in default mode.


trying to do additional diagnostics on this thing without an afm hooked up though is spinning your wheels. drop in a different unit, pref a known good one, and see what it does.

seriously though, you guys need to get a power graphing meter. they're invaluable. check with your local craigslist, pawn shops, flea markets, and even the tool dealers. they'll possibly extend you credit for a model that is outdated for the current technicians, but will still function properly.

just get an externally fused unit.

maybe i'll bring mine to bfe and we can do a little workshop on how to use it??
