Also when taking off it had very poor acceleration in all gears but would intermittenly hit and take off normal. Lack of power. All solved.

OK I found the real problem so I am very happy to report back. This drove me nuts for a very long time and as a mechanic it also saddens me that it took this long. The culprit is the two air lines. On ...

Also found my temp sensor not even close to spec. The temp sensor pointing towards the drivers side is in spec. However the one that face forward is out. I have 200ohm at 70 deg C. According to the bo ...
