P0303 and Service Traction Saga
I looked at all the other post and mines a bit odd, at first I had the typical P0303, and then latter came the P0013 and P0014, so I changed the plugs and the Variable Valve Timing Solenoid's and switched the coil from 3 to 2 to be sure it wasn't a coil kicking the bucket.
The P0013 and P0014 are long gone but the P0303 keeps coming back, had the battery and Alt tested fine.
My odd issue is it only happens when the car is stationary, I can drive her 300 miles of highway non stop and it never comes up and the service traction never pop's but the minute I sit still in a drive thru, stop light or use the autostart it pops the P0303?
Since it's warmer I have noticed it comes a lot more and rather faster when using the ac, I added a bottle of seafoam to the tank yesterday and have drove maybe 50 miles if that "live on a small island" so I don't drive very many miles unless on a road trip, I might also add it seems much worse and doing it more since adding the seafoam to the tank maybe it's just that the issue is getting worse now, also today while at a stop light I got the flashing check motor light, pulled over and killed reset the codes and was fine until the next light then the light came back on solid, 1st time it's done the flashing and running bad deal
Oil is fine and clean also, should I try the Seafoam into the intake to see if that solves the issue next or what step should I try next?
Thanks for any help that I might have overlooked and not tried yet and oh yeah I'm at 106,728 miles on her as well
