Really hard to describe. but I crank the car over and it immediately revs up to the rev limiter and tries to pass it but since the computer wont let it, it just does that back off the redline thing the computer makes automatics do. It does that for a couple moments then slows it down but still does the same thing

That is weird. Codes for the MAP sensor, IAT sensor and TPS sensor are whats kicking the cel on.

You have a 97 so its the older ln2 with the side feed injectors and the 2 piece intake manifold IIRC.

What did you take apart to replace the sensors and what not. What led you to replacing the injector o-rings and then the sensors. Need to kind of go back to step one and see what has been done and we can trouble shoot from there. It almost sounds like there is a vacuum leak that is causing the problems. It could be an injector sucking air or maybe the fuel rail. A bit tough to say really.

replaced the O rings because I had a leak in cylinder 2 and 4, said might as well get em all while im here. everything started doing it after i got everything back together and i started making trips back and forth to autozone to get the next sensor. Found and fixed the problem, upper intake manifold gasket. May not have been as cheap as i wanted this fix to be but hey, I got new O-rings, TPS, MAP, and IACV sensors as well as an oil change and new air filter. (I do love oil change specials at autozone) as well as a can of seafoam.

Dont forget the headlight brackets. I might have a set in storage if you want them.

A lot of people I know in the marines usually go to Wilmington to the bars. That was about 7-10 years ago though.

Wilmington is a good place to live. I live on the other side of the bridge in Leland but its only a 10 minute drive to get into Wilmington to do stuff. Leland is cheaper than Wilmington though as far as rent and taxes.

Anyways havent talked to you in a good long time fstcavz24. It almost seems like the last time we talked much it was when we both were living out in california.

Jacob, I'm not sure if I remember you. Did you come to any of the meets at my houses? Did you have the gold cav?

The cav is just a back up and sometimes commuter car, it's pretty stock these daysdays. If I get the job I'll be staying 2 blocks from work, although I might move out there with or without a job.

I never made it out to your place but I remember talking online sometimes. I think you were selling that xenon body kit and I was going to buy it but had some financial difficulties at that time and was unable to.

I still have my cav but its black. Although I am currently unsure of its future at this point. Its either going to get an eco swap in the near future or will meet its maker at the scrap metal yard.
