    So I've got everything working and running and working on the tune with Lito.

    Car is idling high, I can't find any leaks, but once it gets to operating temp, it wasn't to stall out.

    I noticed two plugs I have no idea where they go. NO CEL are on.

    Can you help me with these?

    I don't have any 3v's here that are put together so I'm guessing here.

    White plug is the oil sender.

    I think the other one goes to the pigtail that goes to the alternator.

    Ok! Oil sender sounds right, I have aftermarket. I have the alternator plugged up and all the o2 sensors. I'll keep investigating.

    It's not for the coolant temp sensor is it?

    The only harnesses near the battery I can think of is the o2's or coolant temp going into the valley. But it didn't look that long

    Maybe. It looks like it would go under there, but from what I recall the temp sensor was relocated with the DOB.

    Ok, I went and looked at the back of my stock intake manifold, and found this. So that is where it must have connected no? Does it need hooked up somehow?

    That's why I don't remember that plug. I haven't worked on a car with delete plates in a long time. You don't need to plug that in.

    I think Wes is right. That plug may be for the water temp which is under the front of the manifold.

    Water temp is plugged up. I had to extend that wire. This is unaltered. I believe it is the oil pressure sensor plug; as I'm using an aftermarket gauge and unplugged it, I had just forgot about it.

    Yup! We figured it out!

    Now I just need to figure out why it stalls when it's at operating temp.

    woooo.

    totally forgot about that plug, figured it was only the other 2, but then remembered that, tune just turns it off.

    who's tuning?

    It's idling around 1000-1100 if I drive it it hiccups and backfires like crazy. Wants to stall when I'm coming to a stop, and if I let it idle in neutral at temp it starts to choke and stalls.

    Replaced my TPS sensor, put new plugs in and checked all vacuum lines, replaced all caps on blower. Can't figure it out. Wonder if it's my throttle body? I'm using a dual 66mm from l&m. I've also taken the t/b apart and swapped the electronics from my stock throttle body just to test that.

    Is it trowing any codes? i'm guessing not or you would be all over that with Lito.

    We had a broken wire for the TB on our 2010 that was only "sorta" broken so it was intermittent. It was a nightmare to find.

    Thanks, I'll look at those tonight and see how it looks. I posted a new thread about the symptoms. I appreciate the help with those sensors/ I just wanted to make sure those weren't the culprit.

    Only code I had was a random fuel one, my fuel gauge wasn't working. So I pulled my pump and dropped it back it, i guess the floater arm was stuck in position. But I fixed that. It was reading several TPS codes, and a new sensor fixed those.
