Number one.. when idling in traffic at times (sometimes for 10 secs to 5 mins) my check engine lights comes on and will go off a second later or a minute later. will always go off if I start to creep forward. my ac is usually on too, but I don't know if it comes on without the ac on.

second, what is the name of the sensor that controls your onboard computer? my temp on my comp is reading -35 when it's over 90 out lol.

Does anyone else have a lot of air coming up from where your clutch pedal is or where your shifter is? mine does... it's weird...

When I didn't have the shift boot on there was a breeze from the counsol. There's a couple foam rubber peices in there that could be missing.

I had the same temperature guage problem. There is this sensor on the bottom left hand side of your car. Its where the cooling duct for the front brakes is. Its like plug in sensor (hard to describe) So the sensor was loose all I did'nt was put it back in, and the temperature was reading fine.

Ok you see where the fog lights are on your car, its right behind it. Its a hollow channel with a guage plugged in on the top of it. That hollow channel leads cool air to the front brakes.
