youre the specialist so I'm assuming you've got the good gas in 'er and tried the hard reset (map reset that is).

Good luck!

hmmm, since it's warmed up (er, did, it's freakin' 34F in vt right now, and snowing!!), my car has been running fairly well. i ran a tank of 93 (mobil) 2 tanks ago, and it ran great, and then some 89 (mobil), and it ran like ****. this morning i filled it up with 93 (mobil) and it's running great again. 93 from now on.

odd, since we're supposed to "not notice a difference" between the different octane ratings . . . hmmm... <scratches chin>

specialist? smeshalist.. I've been typically running 87, and it's been fine... since I noticed the hesitation 2-3 weeks, I've gone to 89, but the weather has been fluctuating so much it's not consistant. it's got 43k on her, maybe it's time for a tune up. I put the plugs in about 20k ago, the air filter is prolly dirty too... maybe time for a new fuel filter too. I'll try the earthing mod too, but it seems a bit gimichy though.

As for the ecu reset, well, I've got a scanner, so a hard reset isn't necessary, but I'd figure there's an inherant problem that's causing this, of course I haven't reset my ecu in monthes, but I know the code will come back. Ah, alas it is time to fix my leaky exhaust too.

could try changing spark plugs, air filter, fuel filter, and pcv valve.

They're all relatively cheap items and probably need changing soon anyways... Try running premium gas and see if that does anything too...

well... I did the simplest thing that I could think of, I used the odb-II scanner, and cleared my code, well, well, well... she's back.
So, I've cured the symptoms, but what is the cause? maybe I got a bad batch of gas, It's posible, I'm all over these days, and I guess I'm not all that selective about the gas I run (time to start being consistant w/ my gas purchases. I'm planning on a tune up in the comming weeks, oil, air filter cleaned, fuel filter, plugs, maybe the earthing mod. We'll see.
