Well, I can tell you that your computer has been flashed or replaced with a flashed unit. That switch switches between maps and would be my first suspect. I suggest you get another stock computer. You can find them cheap at a junk yard or at one of a couple online message boards like turbododge.com or turbomopar.com.

I have a 1988 dodge daytona 2.2l turbo w/o intercooler, 5 speed manual. car ran fine, then started to over heat, shut off on a me a few times-just died. then would start back up and go a bit more, then...


If the engine was ran that much after overheating, you probably warped the head.

The crank sensor may also have been damaged by heat and need to be replaced. Check the spark plugs as well for cracked insulators or worn (read melted) tips.

87 Dodge Daytona Shelby 2.2


My battery went dead. It was 5 yrs old it was time to change it. It also went dead. Bought a new altenator and installed it. OK now. Had a problem with the engine with the engine cutting out on the highway. Put some injettor cleaner in the tank and it took about 2-3 days and it`s fine now.
