95 Regal Gran Sport will start cold, but after about 4-5

Customer Question

95 Regal Gran Sport will start cold, but after about 4-5 minutes, will run very rough and check engine light will come on. Replaced mass air flow sensor with a remanufactured one, didn't help. Cannot get a scanner to work on this vehicle. Tried both I and II. Tried the paper clip, no good. Any thing you can suggest will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Just tell me what I paid for to begin with.
Expert:  Roy Belding replied 10 months ago.

ok, then we continue here.

if the light work, no communication, then the ecm has failed. it needs to be replaced. it can be bought at a parts store and you can do it yourself. there is a prom inside that needs to be changed but is simple to perform. t should take you under an hour

you have paid for my experience and knowledge.
