      r3v was doing weird stuff for me earlier.

      All this Z3 talk is making me look at S2000's I saw one with a hard top and bolt on flairs, really good looking car.

          I got the error earlier, but left it alone since I saw so many double posts...

          S2K isnt a bad option if you can find a clean one...

            I think those are normally close, so if you take if off and blow through it, no air should be able to pass.

            In theory, an open purge valve will cause a hard cold start.

            Also, make sure your idle/throttle is all set up correctly.

            ***unplug your ICV and adjust the throttle stop screw until your idle gets up to about ~900 rpm. Then, reconnect the ICV and your idle should stabilize at 750 rpm. You may need to adjust your TPS again after the adjustment, since you're going to be changing your "closed" position of the throttle body.
            Thanks man, I never the throttle screw as such. I just did what the Bentley said, it gives a measurement, but I have it set to be slightly open. Enough to see light through. But, that was all done with the the TB off the car.

            I'm going to pull the purge line off, and cap it when I get home.
            See what that does.

            As far as long crank starts, it only does those after I've driven the car, gotten it temp, and then park it for an hour or two. When it's cold it cranks up pretty quickly.

              The forum seems to be doing this off and on since shortly after the update? Today wasn't the first

                  Found it!

                  Pin 45
                  No continuity to the blue temp sensor.

                  Pin 24 (Ground)
                  Tested good.

                  Car was warm, sensor was @ 275 ohms.

                  I did the idle screw adjustment, and adjusted the TPS, it seemed to help some, but I'll get the temp sensor working before I try to dial in all of that again.

                    Is good, but not the signal wire.
