    pcm has been replaced with a refurbished PCM from some outfit in California. Part has a lifetime warranty. Nothing changed after pcm replacement

    Thanks for the tip, but the coolant temp sensor didn't solve the problem either. One thing I noticed on the data stream - shows no crank signal when the engine is cranking, even though the crank sensor has been replaced, the pcm has been replaced, and there is power to the crank sensor. When the engine starts to run normally at operating temp with the cam sensor disconnected, it seems to lack power and sounds tinny. Plug in the cam sensor and no difference. If you try to restart at operating temp with the cam sensor connected, it will not start.

    This vehicle does not have a MAF. I called the company that sold the refurbished PCM, explained the situation, and they are willing to replace under their lifetime warranty. It will be awhile before I can retry. If you come up with any other ideas in the mean time, please let me know. Is there a possibility it jumped timing?

    I am now on my third rebuilt PCM - this is the closest the vehicle has come to starting since July. As you remember, I had to disconnect the cam sensor to start and run it in limp mode until operating temp was reached. With this PCM, I still have to disconnect the cam sensor to start, but idle is normal after about 10 sec. I noticed on the datastream that with the cam sensor plugged in, the cam signal status jumps between yes and no as does the crank signal. The DIC synchronization jumps between yes and lost. This scenario is the same as with the original PCM other than the time to achieve normal idle. Any more ideas?

Hi! Its a possible PCM (powertrain control module) failure. The PCM is like a car's brain. Its working when you disconnect the sensors for it bypassed the PCM but once it is connected it fails. Try a PCM swap and see how it goes. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

    Hi! Have you tried swapping the MAF (mass air flow) sensor? The MAF has big contribution on engine performace.

    I doubt that it will jump timing. But the PCM can do it.

Check the connection to the vehicle speed sensor. You can check the vehicle speed sensor by using a voltmeter set at millivolt. Then pass a metallic object close to it. The sensor should induce voltage as you pass the metallic object close to it. If not replace the vehicle speed sensor.

Limp mode?


It may have a "loss of prime" code that usually follows a service of the fluid and filter. After you're sure the fluid is full at operating temperature, disconnect the battery for a few minutes and reconnect to see if the code resets. I hope this helps.
