Looking for a place that fogs the Cannister; very few work the weekend but I have vacation next week and will get that done, however those 2 codes P0442: EVAP. Small loss and P0455: EVAP. Gross loss are now gone.
I found part of the problem this morning. The thermostat was broken in half. After changing the thermostat to a failsafe, the engine reached normal operating temperature and the radiatir fan actually came on. Which I havn't heard all summer.
It did not stalll until I had taken it on I5 and ran it up to 70 and stalled on the off ramp under 30 mph.3 seconds after the check engine line came on. 30 minutes later I flushed the coolant and was on my way. The engine ran coller on I5, but the engine light stayed on.
The trouble codes were not there after I chnged the thermostat, but came only after the stall.
The trouble codes now are:
P01391:Intermittent loss of CMP or CKP.
P0725 Engine Speed input Circuit Malfunction
P0700 Transmission Control System Malfunction
P0725, at not ime did the engine missfire or idle ruff.
P0700, nor did the tranny do anything but smooth shifting.
The above 2 codes could be from stlling at 25-30 mph and the engine stalling as I approached the stop sign.
The P1391, I hope is not due to the timing belt. Could the timing belt have stretched allowing intemitten failure of the waterpump that allowed the engine coolant reach enough temperature to break the thermostat? Or is the unrelated?
I took the top of the timing belt cover last summer ate 70000 and ther wer no cracks, no wearing of the ribs. Could it have stretched ever so slowly that it stalled 3 or 4 times late last summer, then mow every other day when driven more than 4 or 5 mile to and from work?
