Your CE light is telling you something. Get the code and see what sensor is tripping the CE light.

Either find someone with an obdII logger or go to a pepboys and have them pull the code. I think they do it for free.

the idle problem we all have, its called idle surge, for more info just search, as far as the CE light, if you smell gas when you start the car and your getting bad gas milage its probably your o2 sensor, thats what usually ticks the CE light to come on, or atleast its the most basic problem, 60 bucks for a new one i think and its pretty easy to replace

well for some reason the ce light went off... after i washed the car lol. i did the mas hack and the idle seems to be ok besides the surge, so i think ill try messing with the bliss screw to see if that helps..

peace (by the way, the biss screw sets the idle, doesnt really do anything to the surge ;) )

TurboEclipseGSX... you better check your references cause the BISS screw DOES do stuff to the idle surge...

instead of going somewhere to have the codes pulled you can hook up an analog meter to the diagnostic plug and get it that way.

The Hanes manual ( or is that the" how to work on cars for dummies manual" j/k) has the codes for the sensors and tells what wires to connect to.

TurboEclipseGSX, the o-ring is the number one reason that air gets under the BISS screw thus creating a vaccuum leak. As far as I understand, the worn out #5 gasket makes the idle surge problem appear. check out the link at: http://www.myzero.com/engine/surge.html#BISS , it might help you out .........

ps. Respect hardcore means RESPECT to the highest level. lol
