Ill post this in both threads you have to be sure you get it, but I would start looking at your vacuum lines see if any are chipped, or cracked or even straight broken. If so get some rubber fuel line and slip it all the way over the entire line and thats usually a good help to get you moving. I had rough idle, and threw codes like crazy til I fixed all my vacuum lines. It may not solve all your problems or any of them for that matter but it may fix all of them and its a cheap little upgrade to help ya out some.

You can call me tomorrow I will be at work but should be able to answer. Ill send you a PM with my number

Vacuum lines won't cause those issues..

Without seeing it all in person, but they way you explained it all.. I'm going to pull something out of the air and say there is a possability you shorted out your ECU/PCM

I don't see how grounding the STI would do it, but who knows.. I'm way up here in Riverside but I have 2 ECU's you could try swapping out to see if it makes a difference..

Or you could sweet talk Marc into coming up here to help me out with my problems. and he can bring the ecu's back down with him.. :thumbup

Theres a possibility I could do that. Is Sat gonna work for you Vic. I know the vacuum lines wont cause all of those problems but it could cause a few for sure.

thank you guys for all the help. I know it's short notice for needing help but I am off everyday at 5 so if anyone wants to cruise out another day I am open as well. Marc and Vic I am greatful for all the offers for help! if it's not an inconvenience to any of you the ecus would help a lot if my local junk yard got rid of their only running bronco.

The Ecu's I have laying around are "extra's" They are ones I picked up here and there while I was looking for the one I use now..

But it's an odb1 351 ecu..

If it works for ya we can work something out.. I'm not looking to get rich off of anything and money isn't actually that tight.. So maybe I'll have to have a bbq and you have to provide the beer or steak...

We'll see..

im not sure what's going on but I'm off at 5 tomorrow and I'm off all day on Sunday. if we get those ECUs and one works then I have an oil pan gasket that needs to be changed and prolly need new plugs so I'll prolly need plenty of help if you guys wanna help with little stuff. pm me if any of you wanna cruise by.

Truck is coming along nicely.. I finally have the 96 radiator mounted into the 69's engine bay.. Thanks Marc!

Marc left my place around 3:30 to head over to another member to pick up a toolbox. Then he was heading home. I saw I missed a call from him almost an hour ago.. (I was taking a nap) :brownbag

I'm sure he'll chime in about a time to meet up with ya.. He has the ECU that I was using for awhile.. He said something about heading over there tomorrow to check your stuff out..
