97 with 156k started having more problems yesterday.
For the last month or so the throttle has a mind of its own. With a steady foot on the throttle it takes off or goes back to idle.
Scanned it a few times and but it never threw a CEL
sensor and connector- No Change
Last night it started idling weird, bounces 200-300 RPMs at idle. Sounds like its missing and runs like crap.
When i started it up this morning it was loping and would barely run till it got warm. It smokes blue/white every startup even though i have no EBPV
I ran a CCT on it about a week ago before the problem got worse and it threw a code for the #3 Cylinder. Ill get the code soon
It passed the buzz test, and they all sounded fine. Changed the fuel filter today and it looks really dark and sort of oily. The fuel filter housing was dirty inside as well.
was replaced 50k ago by PO, but im gonna put a new one in there. Any other suggestions? Injector or O rings? IPR
? No fuel leaks that i can find.
Its been getting a lot worse mileage lately and ive noticed a loss in power.
Thanks for any help- Gibson
