You've got a problem with the heater circuit in the O2 sensor after the CAT. The PCM monitors this circuit all the time, but calls on it during cold starts. The O2 sensor has a small heater in it...

You can always splice it temporarily, but that is a last ditch effort to alter the factory connection. I would try to connect it and use a few zip ties to hold the connector in place. Did you check...

Damn, that sucks. I feel like splitting the cost of the HB with you, I lead you down that path. Chasing these problems gets very frustrating.

That's the way mine looked, except that I had many small cracks in the rubber around the circumference. I would have never condemned it, because I couldn't see where anything had moved. I do recall...

I didn't line up the timing marks to check to see if the HB moved. I looked very closely at the rubber insulator and I could see small cracks and the rubber appeared to be dry rotted. I figured it...

What you are describing sounds exactly like the harmonic balancer has shifted. You can't tell by looking at it, but it sure throws the engine out of balance. It will rattle the car at different...

If you've got a wiring diagram, you can check for fuel pump power in a couple of places. I would go to the harness going to the top of the tank (rather than the inertia switch). I believe you can...

I agree, that bracket made the simple water pump job a PITA. I pulled the whole PS / Alt cradle bracket off once the PS pulley wouldn't budge - added time to the job. It does sound like someone...

I replaced mine a few months back. The motor has 2 wires going to it - I believe the switch supplies 12v to 1 wire for up and the other wire for down. Since the vehicle is 15 years old, sounds like...
