KA24DE Issues/CEL codes

19 September 2017 - 05:03 AM

The KA24DE in my 620 was bogging and sputtering over 4k RPM's, so I ordered a new MAF from RockAuto and it fixed that problem...but it caused another couple of issues. Now when its cold it idles kinda rough until warm, frequently dies when warm at idle, and after running for about 10 mins, it totally bogs and hesitates until I shut it off and restart it.


I suppose I could replace the TPS and IACV, but I did not have these problems before replacing the MAF, so im not sure that will fix anything. The PO's electromotive fuel pump was stating to make so much noise I could really hear it in the truck so I replaced it last weekend with a GSL 293 and Wix. That did not fix anything (but it's nice and quiet now).


The other thing I dont understand is how do I pull the CEL codes off the ECU if I dont have a Check Engine light? I'd love to know what the codes are but dont know how.


Any help is appreciated.


Factory A/C Condenser

23 April 2017 - 04:23 PM

Im thinking my next project is to retrofit A/C...wish me luck. I have to mix and match parts to get it to work. I think I'm going to try the Vintage Air slim line heat/cool/defrost under dash unit in the cab and the KA24DE factory mount compressor, but the condenser is still an issue for me. 


Condenser question for those that know please - Did the A/C condenser that is in the parts manual mount in front of the bulkhead/core support or behind it sandwiched by radiator (Rad if you are Canadian) ?. Im golden if it mounted in front, but its a problem if it sandwiched the Rad, I dont have enough room from the front of the KA, I'd have to get a slimmer radiator. Oics always helpful.
