Dealer says diverter valve, discontinued item. I hear it can be other things. Car was bought from a snowbird in fla. Who left it here and only drove it 3-4 months a year and went home to mich. Ran well when I bought it. Drove 65 miles home at 75 mph no problems. Next time out ses light came on. Still running well. On the way to dealer, stalled out. Replaced 2 injectors but dealer says that code means I need diverter valve.
I did some research online and found many other causes from leaky injector to bad air pump. Car has been neglected, anti-freeze is brown, a little water coming out of exhaust sometimes. I plan to flush radiator, install new air and fuel filters. I'd love to keep this car as it is a touring coupe with low mileage, but if it is the diverter valve, I can't find one new or used and i'm told the car will not run without it. I know, lots of info, but everything in this car works and body and interior are 9 out of 10. Any ideas?
have the same problem?
