I posted a thread a while ago about a no spark problem well just to let you all know that turned out to be the damn coil. The last thing that I thought it would be and of course the last thing that I replaced. Anyway, I've been running the car now and these are the codes that I keep getting. E39 which is vcc problem which I realize is concerning the torque convertor. I have enough atf in the trans and the car is shifting fine so what do I do about the code? I want to make sure that there are no codes popping up before I trust this car to go on any long trips and as of now I just don't trust it. Oh by the way, I was getting a code about the pwr steering and guess what that turned out to be? A damn chipmunk had chewed the wire in half at the sensor. That could of happened with something else but I looked and I don't see no wire damage around the sensors but who knows. Anyway the other code is E48 which is an egr problem and it only comes up sometimes, and the E39 is coming up all the time. Is there a way to test any of this, maybe clean something that could be corroded or just replace something? A little advice would be appreciated. Thanks. Oh yeah, one more thing, the steering wheel seems to stick sometimes when you go to turn the wheel. It's nothing major but it's just enough that you can feel it. What could be the problem there?

OK. E39 - to check th eoperation of VCC drive the car at constant speed of say, 50 -55 and with your right foot on th egas pedal lightly touch the break pedal with your left foot. touching the break pedal slightly will engage the break switch and will disengage VCC. It will result in slight 100-200 RPM jump, which you can monitor on DIC by pressing Eng Data button.

E48 - remove the air cleaner and clean the two EGR tubes inside of throttle body under the plates with a stiff wire. Use some carb cleaner, do not care of stuff falling down. While on it clean the back sides of th eblades and th ebores in the throttle body. disconnect the battery negative cable after cleaning the TB for a minute. Put everything back and your E48 code most likely will be gone. BTW E48 may trigger Service Engine Soon light and you will fail emission test for sure too. Good luck.
