Default 4x4 saph hunting

hi all

as above my new saph is hunting checked all the normal stuff like air leaks checked iscv ect and nothing so easy as that

but the car has a pectel computer in the car witch some of the ecu readings on i t and wen i looked at the co it said 2.5 at idle which means nothing to me so could someone give me some info back on that

also looked at the tps and it said it was at 2 degrees with my foot completely off the throttle should it not be 0 degrees and could this course my hunt

regards darryl

When you disconnect the iscv does the hinting stop.

2 degrees means nothing to me with respect to the TPS, is it a 4x4 or RWD?
When you setup or diagnose a TPS it's usually done by checking the voltage so thats maybe the best place to start. See here;

and here

Not saying that's your issue but it's worth checking since it's free, also i suspect your CO is maybe too low so that's possibly an issue too but I'm not 100% on that.

Honestly when you get it set up it will be a different car.
