So, spend weekend tinkering with wagon. Had a friend leaning towards tuning issues, so we started tweaking tune perameters to no avail. I double checked exhaust with no significant leaks found. Sunday I decided I was gonna go buy a new MAF, with not much faith that would be fix.

I pulled the intake off and heard a rattle. My cheap Ebay filter had a metal cap inside that came unglued and beat up the honeycomb of the MAF. I had already bought a new one so I went ahead and installed it, and a new cone filter. Car back to running like it used to.

Pretty pumped to be back to normal.

It's Friday.

I've driven wagon everyday since Sunday. I forgot how I missed it.

I had sent my speedo in to Autometer for repair last week, got it back Tuesday. Did a fresh calibration. Still have same issue. Won't go over 20mph. So gonna take a look after work today for VSS signal at speedo plug. Speedo has been giving me some issues for probably close to 2 years, but still have accurate speed. Just would flick up 10mph and resettle on occasion.


Have 2 car shows to hit up this weekend, probably do a killer burnout at Steelfest, hopefully get some video.

I ordered a tire yesterday, I have 1 good one on shelf. to have replacements ready to go

Sounds like some noise in the line causing the interference. Make sure the wires are decently twisted together all the way to the ecm. This helps cancel any noise between the pair. Pull the vss and make sure the magnet doesn't have any metal shavings on it. Look through the hole in the tail shaft and make sure the reluctor ring is lined up with the sensor. Also make sure the sensor is seated well in the tailshaft housing. Too much space will cause irrelevant readings.

Glad you're back on the road man, smiles per mile is where it's at.
