When the car is cruising along you can feel very (and I mean slight) slight bucking. My duaghters who drive the car have also reported to me that on occasion the car will either stall in motion or have a hard time starting. The Check Engine light has come on several times & then just shuts off. Other times I'll use the car, start it up and see the Engine light come on, shut the car down, re-start the engine and the light would shut off on re-start.
I bought an AutoXray 2500 Codescout to see about the codes. The standard GM lead fits the OBD 1 port on the bottom of the dash but the unit is asking for an OBD 2 cable that I do not have. Upon researching some, The OBD 2 cable obviously fits new style ports 1996-up but this cable will not fit my 12 pin port.
This confusion gets better.
Before noticing the unit asking for the OBD 2 connector, the scanner gave me 3 possible OBD 2 codes that can be a problem with the standard OBD1
cable that I used.
The codes are Po341, P0321 & P1361. I know what they are because the scanner defines them.
My question(s) is this.
What the hell is this car OBD 1 or 2?
If the car is a 1994, why is giving me OBD 2 codes & not the OBD 1 2 digit codes?
Am I confused? HELL YEAH!
What do I trust? The cables, the OBD 2 codes?
SEND HELP SOON!
