Sputtering, stalling, missing. Mechanic already replaced distributor and plugs(which I don't think I needed). Pulled codes P0112 and P1496, checked voltage at MAP, TPS, IAT at something insane like 174 Celsius. All signs point to bad PCM/ECM.
A few questions about replacement:
1) Do I have to replace with the EXACT same part number? Mine is a 1259AG, but I found a used 1393AA. Can I use it? Will the wrong one cause damage, or cause to my car to fire/run poorly/incorrectly?
2) Are there any precautions to take while replacing? Airbags, etc?
3) Is a used PCM/ECM just plug and play? Or do I HAVE TO get it programmed? I really don't care about the VIN or mileage matching.
Thanks in advance guys,
