Question about 1997 Chevrolet Astro
RUNS PERFECT, AFTER 4 MILES DRIVEN ENGINE LOCK OF POWER SURGE. AS SOON THROTTLE PEDAL IS RELEASED TO 1/3 (30 MPH)IT RUNS PERFECT AGAIN. SOUNDS LIKE A BAD CATALYTIC BUT IS NOT. WHILE DRIVING IT I TURN IGNITION OFF AND ON AND FIX THE PROBLEM BY ITSELF FOR A MINUTE OR TWO AND AGAIN THE SAME OLD PROBLEM. AFTER 8 WEEKS SEARCHING SWAPPING AND INSTALLING NEW COMPONENTS I WENT TO CHEVROLET DEALER THEY INSTALL A REMAN. ECM. SAME ****. I TOOK THE ECM AND GET IT INSTALLED ONTO ANOTHER 97 ASTRO THAT IS WAS RUNNING RIGHT. GUESS WHAT?, THAT OTHER VAN RUNS PERFECT.
SWAPPED THE ECM BACK TO THE ORIGINAL VAN AND IS RUNNIG BAD. ENGINE WIRING HARNESS FAILURE SOMEWHERE?. THANKS.
On my 1998 Infinity QX4 I was getting randomly both of P0131 & P0151
This was caused by bad grounding between the intake manifold & the main ground cable.
Installing a thick jumper wire (#10 0r #8) between the intake manifold & the Cylinder head or Main Battery ground cable fixed the problem

Check for every posible loose ground arrownd the engine block
i had foud that many times and technicians have very hard time to find it if you see some thing wires atached to the engine block pull gently on it to see if they are open internally
and check also for clean and tie circuits at batterie and starter
