    Not exactly sure what all that is, but doesn't sound too difficult. My guess would be that the driver's side O2 sensor is shot, replace it.
    Not sure what to do about the 'shift light' failure, hope you have an M6.
    With the EGR, you can either block it off with block off plates and throw it away, or if you need it for emissions/inspection, you can replace the EGR pump. Those are my GUESSES. But I really don't do codes.

    Sometimes one problem can cause other codes to appear. So, it's hard to tell what the original problem is.

    I'm still curious to see what the actual code number is.. I have never heard of these computers tell how many times the code was flashed. But instead only Which codes were stored.. not how many times. haha Something is fishy here. You smell that? *sniff*

    lmfao. i thought it was me for a sec, mabey i stepped in something. but i think your right its coming from the screen. the only think is i know the cags codes is none repetitive. when it pops it goes away and stores. it will only show it once. o2 after a cycle of working they will go out and be stored. if it is stored already and during another cycle is acting up again it will throw the code again but i dont think the pcm stores how many times it has done it. i guess i would wonder, why would he post if it isnt true? so we should just address the problem exagerated or not. i tried to time my smiles green poopin and the faint but it just wont work. lol.

    It's really hard to follow your english. If you want to tell someone how it works, maybe you should think about how you write... Plus, would you want to take advice from someone that is worried about the timing of making smiley faces turn colors and poop and faint? You should listen to yourself and proof read your replies. You sound like your missing a few screws..

    Whoa, you guys need to simmer down. Lets try to keep it on topic and not attack each other. We're all here for the same reasons, we like cars and we like to talk about cars. We just need to wait for him to post the actual codes.

    '94 Z28

    Im guessing that it wuz saying how many times the code has popped. i wanna use a more detailed scanner and check my numbers on the car. Im looking at buying sum EGR b/o plates and changing the O2. It is a M6 car and i believe it has the CAGS skip shift in it. hell 4 all i know it may be unhooked. I ONO???? But when i get the actual code number i will let ya'll know. I just used the one that they had at O'Reilly's. I guess it is for idiots that don't know what to look for. LOL

    That's because you got longtubes with it. Longtubes on a stock tune will always run a tad rich.

    But its real easy to damage MAF. You have to be very careful if you do port it, but I wouldn't do it.

    Why would it be easy to damage the sensor? You're working on the MAF ends, not the sensor itself (in most cases). I have aftermarket ends on my tuned LT1, and it works just fine.

    Because the sensor is, well, sensative, and you can damage the wires easily.

    Do you have the original uncut MAF ends? I would buy them off you if you do, and if the price is right

    That's crazy, a tune should remedy that real easy. Longtubes are a basic bolt-on.
