Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I have smoked it 3 different times, no leaks. Replaced the throttle body and a mass air flow sensor.
Oil changed, vanos solenoids replaced. Fuel pressure is 48 psi steady. Introduced propane when hesitation occurred and no improvementSpark plugs replaced. Coils are new from the dealer replaced about 10k mi ago. Backpressure OK. Scoped all possible signals. Every time did something to it, erased adaptives and ran a relearn.
Is there a way to talk to someone live over the phone?
Thanks.
