More on my current issue, car is 97 9000CS.........I had to put in my backup DI (from my trunk) this past wkend in order to get back to Boston after it wouldnâ€™t start. At first I thought it was the fuel pump, but then I sniffed under the hood around the DI and smelled fried electronics. So then after an hour on the highway (no A/C), and a few minutes on local roads to park, I had a coolant overheat gushing out for 10 seconds. Apparently my radiator fan died (probably the resistor).
What really stinks is during that drive my fuel and temp guages were not workingâ€¦â€¦apparently a flukey EDU unit thats been doing this for a month or so. So therefore I had no idea the coolant was overheating. To solve this I've determined that either the EDU unit is bad or the connector for it needs reseating, I'll play with that tonite. When I started and ran the car briefly the next day it idled normally.
Is it likely the head gasket is OK if it ran for two minutes smoothly?
I have a spare EDU unit......does it need the TechII tool to work after install?
thanks as usual,
97 9000CS, 5 spd, 140k miles
