    Just recently my car has bin running really lean at start up and when it warms up it goes to running rich. i'm used to it running rich but it never ran lean at start up. Should i be concerned about this? Should i run a cleaner through? I'm not sure. Your knowledge would be helpful to me. Thanks

    check all your hoses and connections to your Various valves and such that are on your firewall. They control your idle richness, cold runnig , EGRs etc and if there is a problem at idle or whist it is warming up you can bet there is a split hose or loose connection there.

    Have any of you guys checked the date on this. It was a turbo motor but now the motor has bin pulled and has bin sitting for two years.
