Default Runnning really rich during low throttle

Hey guys,

Is it normal to run rich during low throttle? When I'm in traffic using very light throttle I'm around 12-13.

Thanks,

t.t.

you probably need to adjust the afm, is the car running off the wb02 or still reading the narrowband?

I'm using OG's Autotune using the NB. I converted by NB from single to 4 wire.

Trito you damned NOOB!!! How the hell do you expect people to help you if we have to ask 10 ******* questions about your setup that should have been put in your signature the day you joined the forum?

You posted this in the General Chat forum instead of the EManage forum, you have no signature, you tell us jack **** about the car... how the hell do you expect anybody to help you???

Why don't you put a short mod-list in your signature... basically cut&paste your second post into your signature so we don't have to go through this ever again.

done. reason why I didn't put it under the Emanage thread is because it might not be an emanage problem since I'm using an O2 clamp and the light throttle is out of boost.

Cool

Samnavy,
You represent the Navy and the city of Virginia Beach, do you really have to chew the guy out before you answer his question ?

^It would have been better to PM me about this... but to continue threadjack... representing Virginia Beach is super high on my "represent" list. I'd hate to think I wasn't doing proper justice to the highly regarded Hampton Roads area.

The whole point of my post was that it would be impossible to give a good answer to his question. You could guess at length about what the problem was, but in the end, he said nothing that would help diagnose his fuel problem, and in fact, was very confusing in the minimal information he provided. Fuel filter, injectors, electrical, fuel pump, EManage, stock ECU, grounds, 02 sensor, MAF, vaccum leak, etc.... take your best guss.

Go back to his first post... do you think his "12-13" is talking about his AFR, or his vaccum reading? ~12-13 would be very light part-throttle vaccum while driving arond town... or it could be 12-13:1 for fuel???

A little ***-chewing was in order. I promise you he's a better internet forum user because of it.

As for representing the Navy... the e-beatings will continue until posting improves. That's my little contribution around here. What have you done for this forum?
