Default Sacramento Area Sound Off

Anybody around the Sacramento Area? Been wanting to meet some PT owners in the area and talk shop.

Maybe get somebody with a bit more experience with these cars to take a look at mine and give me some more options on fixing it.

09 PT base owner and fixer (the terms are interchangeable) since march 2016.

I live in Antelope and work in Roseville.

PM me if you have any questions, I may even be able to answer some.

I actually could use some help with my PT. I tried PMing you but for some reason my PM's never go through. I've repaired or replaced everything I can think of, including a new reman PCM, this thing still has a really rough idle. See my latest post in my thread.

You might get in touch with NitroPT. He also lives in your area. He's a good dude and is pretty sharp on these vehicles. I won't go into how I know, but let's just say he helped me out with my GT.

Nitro hasn't responded to my PM yet. I'm kinda coming up against a wall. I need to get this car drivable before the 23rd.

The final ultimate fix was new wires for Injectors 3 and 4. Some how they had gotten shorted to each other and 3 and 4 where firing together. This caused a rich condition which the computer tried to correct by trimming fuel. Which would lean out 1 and 2 and make it run like shit. So I just spliced in new 16 gauge wire for those injectors and it runs like a new car.
