Outstanding Primer1! Glad to hear you care enough to help save lives by donating.

To the rest of you that donate blood a big hearty Thank You!

To those who don't donate, Why not?

Maybe a gallon. I'm usually iron deficient, I'll go and they'll send me home. And then there were other reasons I couldn't donate for two years until last August...

Eat more red meat the week before. Beans, spinach, eggs, sweet potatoes, broccoli, peas are all iron rich, which should boost your iron levels. A supplement helps, but much of it isn't absorbed.

See Cinder this is why I dont get new cars... My Cadillac was throwing codes like that.. I even took it to the dealership to get it fixed and everytime it just came back worse ... It got to the point I just sold it because I was tired of it being worked on more than I got to drive it...

Have you tried googling the codes?

Yeah I got tune up stuff and possibly fuel pressure regulator. I don't think it's the fuel pressure regulator, it starts, runs good and doesn't smell like gasoline. He has to get it registered this month and that light has to be off to pass emissions.

Possible bad injector? My Nissan Quest had a bad injector that was causing a misfire and it would throw different codes.

It could be one of the tubes in the manifold is plugged but it's tbi not ported injection, a bad injector would cause a misfire on half the cylinders not just cylinder 1. I'll clean out the intake while I have it apart though.

I had a car with throttle body injection, it ran good as long as I cleaned the intake every couple months.

I'll spray some throttle body/carb cleaner down it while I'm doing the cap and rotor, I have to have it open anyway.
