Well, my joy didn't last long.

Engine is purring like a kitten and after a week of finishing it, yesterday i was driving home from the office when all the lights on the dash came on and the engine died.

It crank but doesn't start and I and suspecting it is the ECU since I got spark and fuel and everything else is new. I suspect is the ECU because on Friday I was at a traffic light and the revs went from 700 +/- to 2k and back to normal at 700, like a spike sent from the ISC.

So, I am searching for a 1990 ECU. I am tired of these ECU issues so I am looking into the MegaSquirt, even when not in my budget for now, as an alternative for a near future project.

So in the meantime Jacobo, red SWB with 500K miles, comes to save the day as daily driver once more.


88 red Montero with the Dakar Special Edition decals, 438,000 miles (As of 7/23/2012) some occational blue puffing but still strong and counting!!! I am going ppsshhh (turbo), Stay tuned =) ...
