    Codes codes codes

    It lives!!! The Haynes manual was not wrong on the firing oder. They must have fixed it. It also had two broken spark plugs that was causing my problems.

    Now it runs and is an awsome motor! Here are my final problems, I hope:

    Check engine light comes on every now and then while driving. Stays on for a minute then goes out.

    Codes: 173, 177, 179, 188

    Any suggestions?

    Also it idles so low that it wants to die and does most of the time. I hade to put a little piece of folded tape under the throttle assembly just to keep the idle up to where it won't die. Maybe bad Idle Air Controller?

    Thanks for any help.

    All the codes are explained in the Haynes manual.
    Looks like your o2 sensors are reading;
    173=rich right side
    177=rich left side
    179=rich right side
    188=rich left side
