well im pretty good at figuring out problems but this one got me wonderin:mad: . well when i start the car itll idle fine for about 10 seconds then jump to 2000 stay there for about 5 then die. if i unplug the TPS sensor itll stay idleing but itll hunt for idle. the codes i get are code 5(without TPS unpluged, an code 7 w/ it unpluged). on top of that it has a miss:cussing: while back i got a code 15 which is a bad ignitor so i guess im gonna change the dizzy(it makin a lil noise). can anyone think of anything els might be wrong besides the MAP sensor. heres a dumb question to me were it the dam map sensor it it on the driverside on the intake?

to check the EACV (code 14) disconnect the electrical connector to the EACV - idle should drop to around 500-600rpm and remain steady - if it does, the EACV is bad or not working correctly - if idle still fluctuates, you may have other problems in addition to the EACV - other causes are vacuum leak, low coolant level or air in the cooling system, bad wiring connection or faulty MAP sensor - be sure to reset the ECU to clear the code

the other thing you might check is to see that you have the right connector plugged into the EACV - the EACV has a 2-wire connector (on your DPFI, the connector was green) with blue with yellow stripe wire and black with yellow stripe wire - we see a lot of MPFI swaps (people bring them in to have us figure out what is wrong) where the tandem valve connector (which isn't needed), also 2-wire with orange and black/yellow wires, is plugged into the EACV - also, sometimes see the IAT (intake air temp) sensor plugged into the EACV - when this happens you get both code 14 and code 10
