Hey, okay so I went to Meineke to get my car diagnosed with a genesis since I had a cel, followed by major problems: 1) Car struggled to turn on, 2) When finally turned on I pressed the gas pedal and it turned off [when turned on again I waited for the engine to heat up and pressing the pedal didn't cause it to turn off] 3) It had an 1.5-1.7ish idle, 4) when I put it in first to drive off it had a hard time to accelerate properly even with me pressing it all the way, it felt like I was lightly pushing the pedal [i shifted before 5k rpm because at the point it gave a scary jump, in second gear it still lagged until it hit 3k rpm and the car ran normally from there on (driving normally of course), 4) when driving fast the car choked off and on, and 5) while driving the car turns off sometimes. Well I believe that's all the problems
My car was diagnosed with 10 cels, idk about you guys but thats ALOT for me. These are the codes:
-P0108 Manifold Absolute Pressure/Barometric Pressure Circuit High Input
-P0118 Engine Coolant Temperature Circuit High Input
-P0122 Throttle/Petal Position Sensor/Switch A Circuit Low Input
-P0123 Throttle/Petal Position Sensor/Switch A Circuit High Input
-P0508 Idle control system circuit low input
-P1086 Tumble generator valve #2 (LH) position sensor circuit low input
-P1087 Tumble generator valve #2 (LH) position sensor circuit high input
-P1088 Tumble generator valve #1 (RH) position sensor circuit low input
-P1094 Tumble generator valve circuit #1 (opencircuit)
-P1096 Tumble generator valve circuit #2 (opencircuit)
The specialist from Meineke said that the cel p1086 might be causing the erroneous idling, the engine stall, and the poor driving performance. He also said to replace the TGVs and position sensors, while I was in the process of doing that (had an extra used manifold in trunk with the one TGV(the other one is broken) and 2 position sensors), so as I took the IC off I noticed I had a hose(short) that wasn't connected, I tried to find for a good 15 minutes where it would connect to but nothing, then I noticed that the hose was connected to the TGV on the right, so maybe that could be the problem, but I really don't have the slightest clue where it goes, maybe i'm missing something. Btw this is a used engine I bought, the mechanic put some parts of the old engine(which explains why I had an extra manifold [belonging to the bought engine] in my trunk) that we're better than the one I bought, well thats what the mechanic said. But maybe I just need to connect that hose, or replace the TGVs and sensors, idk, thats why I seek constructive help here. And yes I did my research, none was help I needed, or maybe I didn't understand thoroughly. Okay so here are some pics I took of the hose, one of the tgvs, one of the position sensors, and the tps I replaced(hoping it'll fix cel p0122). Click on pics to enlarge.
Oh and my mods are: Custom Catback Hi-Flo Race Exhaust (3" piping + 4'5" tip tilted upward left), Blitz SUS Power Air Intake Filter. F1 Racing Stage 3 Clutch Kit, Blitz Dual Turbo Timer DC IV, and Blitz Super Sound Dual Drive BOV. So please help me, thanks.
