Here is where the problem is, I got a new gasket and put everything back together and started the car. It idled very high at 1500 RPM for a couple of seconds then dropped to a constant 1000 RPM and the engine began to shake wildly.
I double checked that everything was re-installed properly and found that the throttle cable had a little bit too much slack but adjusted it and I think it's back to normal. So I retried it and ended up getting even worse engine performance and a misfire code for cylinder #6. I checked all plugs, wires, and coils and they all checked out alright.
I am currently stumped and don't know what I could have done wrong in cleaning the throttle body and MAF sensor but now i'm stuck with a car that vibrates like crazy, and would appreciate any help I can get.
have the same problem?
