    :confused:trying to narrow down what could throw this code. i know this code is for the fuel system, but what part of it am i looking to find a problem...motor needs rebuilt( rings, headgasket). runs great! after it warms up, it throws this code and cel comes on...this is the ONLY code it will throw, and it seems to be running a tad rich. any help will be greatly appreciated...thanks in advance...

    i think u mean ( 4 blinks then 3 blink ) 4-3
    obd1 will trow ( 4long blinks the 3 fast blinks) 43

    4 CKP - crank position sensor ( dizzy problem )
    &
    3 MAP - manifold absolute pressure sensor

    this is exactly what it is doing through that little window on the ecu. 4 long blinks, then 3 fast blinks. i built this car from ground up myself. the only thing i need to figure out is where to start looking in terms of fuel system problems that would trigger the cel.

    im sure we both are talking about a code 43, fuel delivery system not a map or dizzy problem.
    our cars are running fine, we are just using too much fuel. as shown on my smog results.
    so far what i have done; changed all the vacuum lines, adjusted the timing, checked the fuel pressure regulator, i even changed the injectors to 91 si and the code still lives bright. my o2 sensor is brand new, new oil, filters s.plugs, wires, cap rotor to insure the ignition system is in working order.
    i will check the fuel pressure tomorrow, need to buy the tool.
    might be the fuel cut off solinoid or something stupid.
    anybody else delt with this and found the solution?

    just a thought, since the crx i have is a dx and i put an ls into it, are the main relays the same or to i have to change it to one that was made for a mpfi vehicle?
