i cleared the codes and then connected the reader and got P2635 again. it is the only code in the system and the car barley starts now.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
what would you suggest for additional trouble shooting if the codes are not relevant? The check engine light is no longer on after i cleared the codes.
Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 1 year ago.

what kind of scanner are you using?

Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 1 year ago.

after it starts,does it run well in park?

Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 1 year ago.

lets try something simple here..

remove the intake air duct and clean the inside of the throttle body with carb or throttle body cleaner

Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 1 year ago.

sometimes the throttle body will get dirty with blak soot and cause this problem

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
i am using a Innova 3020b scanner. I just started the car and let it run for a little and the code P0186 came back.So after it starts, it now no longer runs well in park. it sputters and the rpm fluctuate but it will stall in under a minute. I turn the ign off and restart and it will idle for about 20sec then starts the sputtering routine again.Each time is start it and let it run it appears to run longer and a little better. So to answer the question, no it does not run well in park.I have removed the air cleaner, i will spray some cleaner down it.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
the carbmedic did not appear to help. It was a little difficult as the car didnt want to stay running while i was spraying.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
i started it and tried to warm it up, and now it wont start. there are additional codes now. P0174, P0300, P069E, P2635, P0186

HI

SORRY, I HAVE BEEN OFF LINE...NOW WE MAY BE GETTING SOMEWHERE..

YOU DO NOW HAV RELEVEANT CODES,,THE 300,0174 AND THE P069E.

THE 300 CODE ONLY MEANS YOU ARE HAVING MISFIRES ON DIFFERENT CYLINDERS.

SENSE YOU GET THE LEAN CODE[0174 AND THE FUEL PUMP ODE[069E]..I THINK YOUR PROBLEM IS THE FUEL PUMP,YOU NEED TO CHECK THE FUEL PRESSURE,THESE MUST HAVE NO LESS THAN 55PSI AT ALL TIMES.

I WOULD THINK YOU WILL NEED TO REPLACE THE FUEL PUMP MODULE

THANKS
