Re: Surge and idle problem of 1800 GL

Today, my new ECM arrived and I installed it. Using the instructions of TechDude, I got it to work as it should. It went exactly how he described it will. My thanks go out especially to TechDude, and everybody else who chimed in! I saved a s***load of money by not having to take it to the shop. What...

Re: Surge and idle problem of 1800 GL

Thanks Guys! Your input is highly appreciated! Now, one last question: I checked pricing on a new ECM, the cheapest running around $591 (hurts!!!!!). But if I get a smooth running GW back, it should be more than worth it. Now, I asked 2 sellers the question if there needs to be some programming or k...

Re: Surge and idle problem of 1800 GL

Ok, I did as suggested and found 2 long and 5 short flashes, confirmed 3 times, which equals "Code 25". Here is what I found on this forum: 25 Blinks • Engine operates normally • Loose or poorly connected right knock sensor connector: • Open or short circuit in right knock sensor wire: • Faulty righ...

Re: Surge and idle problem of 1800 GL

Thanks for pointing that out! I am 100% sure that the engine will die, but I'll give it a try this weekend.

Will FIXD be able to diagnose the GW?

Re: Surge and idle problem of 1800 GL

Thanks a bunch Greg! I'll go with your suggestion. Just one question before I do: do I have to keep her running after pulling over? She'll certainly die.

Surge and idle problem of 1800 GL

Since last Sunday, my 2001 GL 1800 (6,600 mls) surges to 1200 rpm after a cold start, then works itself down to about 900/700 rpm, then dies. When started warm/hot it dies after a few seconds trying to get higher than 400/500 rpm. I did a 260 mls round trip last Sunday, and everything was fine for m...
