I have a 90 chevy Scottsdale 1500. 130000 miles
It is running a 350 with throttle body injection.
One day just quit. Brought it home and it started, lot of black smoke. Found 2 codes on the computer, O2 sensor (found broke) and temp switch (below -27 for 30 seconds at start-up).
Changed the 02 sensor, gave a complete tune-up.(Plugs, wires, cap, rotor, fuel filter, air filter) Has never had a tune up since I have owned it, so it was due.
Tried to start, would not start. Thought may need some gas to prime the fuel filter(?) Put some into the throttle body after a few tries it started.
Pulled it out of the barn and let it warm up.
Turned it off. Would not restart. After a few times it finally started. RUN GREAT. Took it for a ride, got down the street and it died again. Restarted it would only run full throttle with no RPM's. After about 3 or 4 minutes of running that way I let it stall out. Got out of the truck and found the muffler RED hot (glowing).
Thught it to be a pluged cat. Converter. Cut the cat. Out. No change can not restart at all. It has good spark, fuel comming thru the injectors and cranks fine.
The only code is 15 (temp below -27 degrees for more than 30 seconds)
I do not know how to reset that code.
Any help would be great.
