View Full Version : little studder and check engine light

06-27-2014, 01:04 AM
Ok so i have a 90 auto and im swapping to a 5sp i swopped out the auto harness and put in the 5sp harness clutch peddle etc. I havent put the trans in yet just wanted to start it up to make sure everything was hooked up right. Starts up but when i let the clutch out it dies. But if i umplug the trans harness i can let go of the clutch it stays running. But check engin light is on and a slight studder if i punch it. Is this going on because the 5spharness is not plugged in or do i need to throw in the 5sp computer ad well.

How did you connect in the clutch switch? Did your car have the plug in it like others have suggested? Or did you swap the dash harness?

I swapped the whole dash harness out. The auto trans is still in it ubtill tonight

Ok, that explains. The two circuits are conflicting. It will be fine with the auto EEC once you get the transmission swapped.

NOt sure what the code was. It turned on within 5sec. Ifiguard it would be fine after i put the other trans in. Hopfully this weekend it will be in
