Re: 91 EJ22E Brat Swap Code 61

haha yea.... my old fuel tank rotted out and I replaced it with an aluminum fuel cell, but one of the screws for the fuel level sender leaks a tiny bit, and if the tank gets pressurized it leaks a lot. so I took the seal out of the gas cap until I can drop the tank to repair it properly. It doesn't ...

Re: 91 EJ22E Brat Swap Code 61

Wrong ECU for the intake manifold. The manifold must have been off a 92-94 car. It's got the rotary valve IACV and the red injectors.

Snagged a junkyard 93 ECU and a JECS maf, and its running like a champ now.

Re: 91 EJ22E Brat Swap Code 61

Actually now I'm thinking that my whole intake manifold is more likely off a 92. So rather than finding a 91 IAC, I'm probably better off trying a 92 ECU.... although then I'll also need a jecs maf... hmmm...

Re: 91 EJ22E Brat Swap Code 61

I haven't had the code 61 come back again and I think I've figured out my idle problem

Looks like the 91 manual trans car is supposed to come with a different idle control valve than what I have, a 2 pin version.

Re: Oil Pressure gauge reading 0psi at idle..

they'll read kinda funky if the ground at the gauge has a potential difference to the ground at the sender.

Re: 91 EJ22E Brat Swap Code 61

There is a code 35 stored from when I was trying to get the swap running, but there isn't a current one when I put it in d-check mode. I have a purge solenoid hooked into the wiring but its not actually hooked up to anything, but that shouldn't matter, AFAIK it only goes off the resistance of the so...

Re: 91 EJ22E Brat Swap Code 61

Well I've always had idle problems, but I've just ignored them. Recently my fuel economy took a huge dump do and started getting hesitation on acceleration. The problem is I've got about twenty codes stored from when I was trying to get the swap running initially, and I can't clear them so I can't f...

Re: 91 EJ22E Brat Swap Code 61

Anyone ever had the idle circuit in the ECU fail?

I can control the IAC manually by grounding the pins after disconnecting them from the ECU, but the ECU won't control it itself. It just keeps it full closed.

Re: 91 EJ22E Brat Swap Code 61

I can't clear the codes. I tried disconnecting the battery for three days, pulling the fuse and removing the ecu completely from the car. nada. the proper way of clearing the codes by connecting both connectors doesn't seem to work, but I think you need to take it for a test drive and get the all cl...

91 EJ22E Brat Swap Code 61

This is really weird. I had a major drop in fuel economy so I was doing some diagnostics, I put the Brat into D-check mode, did a test drive and it comes back with codes 24,33,51 and 61 I fixed 33 and 51, now I've got 24 and 61 I'm going to try and fix the idle air valve this weekend... but what the...

Re: EJ22E swapped Brat failing emissions

haha soooo....

HC dropped from 665 to 47 (max allowed 408)
CO dropped from 6.83 to 0 (????, max allowed 4.60)

Car has officially passed emissions.

Fun fact: Even if this engine was still in a 91 Legacy, it would have breezed through the test.

Re: EJ22E swapped Brat failing emissions

Yowza... got the hitachi maf on tonight and I think my gas mileage is about go through the roof. This thing has a ridiculous amount of power now, it's hard to keep my foot off the throttle :P

Taking it back for a retest monday, I'll update with the results!

Re: EJ22E swapped Brat failing emissions

Dang his JECS ecu was fried, didn't even prime the fuel pump. I did confirm that my ECU is a hitachi tho, so should any hitachi maf work, even from a turbo?

Re: EJ22E swapped Brat failing emissions

Oh FFS, I have the wrong damn MAF I just realised. At least I think so.

The ECU is from a 91 NA 5MT, and I have the black JECS maf.

I need the metal MAF, don't I?

Re: EJ22E swapped Brat failing emissions

I had to piece it together, the computer did come out of another legacy but it came out of the same year and transmission. The car failed the Idle test, I'll see about hooking up the VSS but I don't see how that can come into play when the car isn't even moving. Coolant temp sensor is definitely som...

EJ22E swapped Brat failing emissions

Long time no talk, fellas. I moved for school a couple weeks ago, and the city I moved to requires emissions testing. I installed a couple cats and thought I'd be laughing, with my 91 Legacy motor in my 83 Brat. Nope. They only did the idle test, but HC was 665 and CO was 6.83%, both about 50% above...
