Regardless, here's an update on my... let's see now....how many PCMs has it taken ?..... The original, the one from the Florida rip-off guys, one Cardone ( that one lasted 11 months), the replacement Cardone ( that one never was really "right" from day one) and this second replacement Cardone. That's FIVE PCMs. Two of which I paid for.
But....I managed to clear up quite a few small issues before I installed #5. The main one being the downstream O2 sensor which has been in there for a long time. Not the original one for sure...but it's been several years. One thing I did NOT do this time, was cinch the connectors down too tight with zip ties. I simply pulled them "snug" and didnt apply that last little bit of muscle to them, which may have contributed to the premature solder joint failure.
150 miles and not a hiccup since the new PCM.
