Priced but not ordered??? Arrgh!!! I was called last night and told that it would arrive Tuesday morning. I'm gonna lose my mind!
To be honest, not sure if the fuel delivery was monitored when it began running too rich. Even if there was a pressure spike, the dampeners would account for that and send the extra back to the tank, right?
To reiterate, the car runs rich while at idle, and then fixes itself and goes back to normal. It's very intermittent, and the event can't be connected to sitting too long, being too cold, too warm, grandma looked at it funny ... It just happens, clears itself up, and seems to be ok for a while. I can state for a fact that all the sensors under the hood have either been replaced or verified (my wallet can attest to this as well)...
My psychic powers tell me that the throttle posit. sensor is the issue. If this thing were misadjusted, could that cause the intermittent problem I've got?
