I'll check if my mechanic has the diagnostic tools necessary. Are we basically needing an oscilloscope?
I'll re-do the reversed bank test tonight after I get some movement in the LTFT's.
Can you help me understand why LTFT's are more important than STFT's?
This is the oddest log yet, the car starts off with each bank out of wack, then levels out. I confirmed that the banks are swapped, and bank 2's sensor is going to bank 1 in the ECU and vice versa. I spent a few hours verifying the wiring on Sunday so I'm pretty positive of that.
Anyways, here's the log: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/104aAcWuo4F4h2QC2u4lBXJCbXbxrjZe-EB8NEk1b6m0/edit?usp=sharing
Some things to not in the log, when the fuel trims leveled out, my wideband sensor (not in the log) was reading around 11.6-12.2. Under any sort of throttle, one bank would lean out and the other would go rich. During the log, under no throttle, the car would do a small rev and the banks would level out.
I forgot to add, here's a video to accompany the second (warm start) log. It just shows the tuner and the afr's. The afr was much better with the banks hooked up properly, but again, cylinder 1 was cold. https://youtu.be/VsiMGL1Cy9s
This is not a stock v6, it has a lot of engine modifications done to it:
stroked and bored to 4.3l, forged internals, ported throttle body, ported upper and lower intake, ported heads, larger valves, decent sized cam (.54/.54), longtube exhaust, and your typical CAI.
The only thing that changed between when it worked and then started doing this is it sat for around a year being started occasionally (except the last 3 months), I took it in and had the timing chain and components replaced, at the same time they threw on the ported upper and lower intakes as well as throttle body. With that in mind, I've been working with the tuner who made changes for these mods but the issue came up. Two weeks ago I tried the previous tune from before the recent changes and the car ran exactly the same way.
Correct, it ran fine before the timing chain was fixed but not after.
The misfire was in 4, but now after I did the long log with the O2 banks swapped cylinder 1 was about 270 and cylinder 4 was about 380, which is around the same temp as the other cylinders. It's just weird and doesn't make sense to me.
I'm going to test another ecu (same year, model, and trans) and see of that changes anything. Do you have any suggestions on what to look at next?
The new ecm came in today, thankfully it has the same ecm code and strategy so I was able to flash the tune on it and try running the car. Unfortunately it ran exactly the same as before.. I'll try to get a long log of this ecm if anybody wants one, but I feel like I'm sol at this point.
I'm in the process of convert my 1985 gt cfi to a sefi. I have a wiring harness from a 1989 the green connector what it purpose I can not find it on the wiring diagram I have can anybody tell what the green connector is for the 1985 mustang and the 1989 mustang?
Hi everyone. I’m trying to install a contour fan and Dakota digital fan controller in my 93 GT. The mishimoto fan just wasn’t keeping up. I purchased the LMR brackets and the fan bolts up nicely to the radiator and BARELY clears the blower pulley(1/4”). I’ve read through many posts on the fan...
I had to replace the one touch module for the driver's door window yesterday as the motor would try to continue to run after travel bottomed out. It's been that way for a while, I finally found the energy to fix it -and now it auto stops at full travel like it should. But you can see the "extra"...
Installing a Holley terminator X and I need to figure out a few things. I've found all the major diagrams on veryuseful but they don't show these specific plugs or pinouts. I have a hard time trusting color because from what I'm reading the 1990 is a specific harness and some of the wire...
