autologic scanner was used.. i dont have any fuel trim readings. ckp sensor was not physically checked.
Auto Mechanic: Chad Farhat, ASE Certified Technician A6 - Electrical / Electronic systems A7 Heating / Air conditioning systems replied 4 months ago

that will make it hard if no fuel trim to confirm few things ,if you can not get them

vacuum leaks around intake ,maf sensor or ckp sensors will cause the intermittent ,I suggest a smoke test to check leaks ? clean tb body if you have not already , replace ckp sensor if no tools to check signal , fairly cheap on ebay .and clear faults and retest

You are very welcome :)
