Re: Cold Natured??

Check to make sure your MAF and MAP sensors are plugged in.

As far as the warming up issue, you probably have a stuck open thermostat. It is also possible you may have a malfunctioning FIAV (fast idle air valve) which helps your car idle when it is cold.

First off.

Rough and Someone. Text speak does not fly here. If you have any questions, Rule #7 in my signature will answer them.

As for your warming up problem. I would first say thatyou should fix the problems with the map and maf and see if that solves your problem. When was the last time you replaced your Thermostat? It could be stuck open, causing a longer then normal warm up period for the car.

Do you have a logger handy?

Re: Cold Natured??

Make sure your CEL clears after you replace the sensors (if necessary).

Thermostat and FIAV are your next bet in getting it to warm up quicker.

Quick test: Do you have good heat in the car?

Re: Cold Natured??

You need a new thermostat. Easy to replace. Best part is it's cheap, too, about $13.

Make sure they include the rubber o-ring which goes around the thermostat when you buy the new one.
