I’m in a similar situation after doing headers. Any resolution?
I wonder if the new headers may have a leak? Or aren’t torqued down properly? Couldn’t hurt to check. Weird that two people have had the same issue with these headers.
Headers are on tight. I replaced the IAC it had been bad for ages. I also swapped the 1 and 6 injectors while this was all apart. IAC code is gone. Then it was throwing a P0300. Let it sit for a day and tried it all again. Just a P0306. Been trying to troubleshoot that all day now.
im embarassed but, here goes.
bad spark plug.
but i swapped spark plugs, right? i must have put #4 back into 4 and not into 1. shop made sure, they did not want to call me back with just that. but im just glad its over. I spent too many hours looking at this project.
Glad for the good new brother. Sometimes it just takes a second pair of eyes to see the obvious.
what exacty has happened and what did you do. what did you disconnect/reattach/replace.
Mine is still sitting in the driveway throwing P0306. I have replaced the long bad IAC, done new cap, rotor, plugs and wires. While I was doing the IAC, I switched injectors 1 and 6. Still have the issue. I feel like I have addressed fuel and spark that leaves compression. No idea how this could randomly happen with the header swap.
Coolant leak? 6 is where my head gasket failed.
Update - I have compression on 6! I also know I have spark. Chasing down the fuel issue. I’ll let you know when I know more later this week.
