Hello, my name is***** will be helping you out! I have over thirteen year of experience in the automotive industry for numerous different makes & models. I enjoy doing what I do, it is my life.

The p1697 code is saying the mileage is not stored on the computer

The p1604 is saying the PCM has an internal failure and needs replacing

The p0700 is a generic code that the TCM uses to make the engine light trigger saying Transmission has an issue

The p0031 Is an oxygen sensor code that can sometimes cause an intermittent rough idle and stalling I have attached a procedure to perfom for it, but cleaning connections on the oxygen sensors and PCM could fix this problem, I have ran into this with a connection issue .

The p2074 Can also be a running rough issue. Possible causes are a number of things. They are as follow

PCM or PCM programming

MAP sensor

TPS

If equipped with a Turbo charger, the Turbo charger

Timing belt

Engine pistons

Cylinder head intake or exhaust valves

Idle air control valve

Vacuum leaks or PCV valve

Intake boot clamp loose

Let me know if you have any more questions, thank you

What Customers are Saying:

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
