    So my 1uz swapped cressida has this weird issue. The voltage when either pressing on the brake pedal or turning on the headlights , drops the voltage down to 10.4 v when running . it stopped doing it then did it again. I do have an aftermarket electric fan and a 1000 watt stereo system, so i...

    New Used ECU issues! I think i hydrolocked my engine with fuel

    it seems to be fine now , i may have another issue with #5 , but atm its running great, with the 3rd replacement ecu. Only thing i notice is it has a light gray mist when cold , but after its warmed up its all good

    New Used ECU issues! I think i hydrolocked my engine with fuel

    i will probably do just that. im assuming the drivers were bad in the old computer , as it hydrolocked the engine but with the new engine it runs fine , i wonder if it was a combination of the two both stuck #5 and an ecu . maybe thats why the engine runs a little rich when cold

Injectors maybe? . #6 cylinder was flooded when i pulled all the plugs out. it was the...
