April 27, 2010Hey everyone am trying to get ideas on why my 350TBI wont idle anymore without dying. Something arced a while back and it has not idled since, i changed out the cap, plugs, wires, coil, distributor and wiring harness and it still wont idle without dying. I heard that I might need to have my computer reset with a laptop and pigtails since I dont have a data port but have tried two computers so I am not sure if that is the problem. As long as you give it gas it runs ok and it smokes a little sounds to me to be a timing problem. thanks for the help in coming up with possible problems.

April 27, 2010you need to read the computer code. That will tell you if your O2 sensor or other sensor is bad.
April 27, 2010Did you check fuel pressure/filter? Is there a reason you do not have a scan port? Are you running a open or closed loop system?
Hold my beer and watch this!
April 28, 2010Look at the ground cable. A bad ground can be the problem. Also check for a vacuum leak.

April 28, 2010I am running one 02 sensor though it is setup for two I am working on finding out how to trick the computer so I can run with just one. I am using a RCI fuel cell and am puching a constant 12 psi of fuel pressure so it isn`t an issue there. Been trying to narrow down whats wrong with it since I got back from Iraq this year so I will be trying your ideas today. thanks for the help
