    Ia have seen O2 Heator wireing cause problems like this check connectors and wiring because looks like you have done the normal repairs

    Thanks for your reply. I did get a o2 heater code 6 months ago, I replaced the o2 sensor with a AC-Delco type & the code went away.
    one of the mechanics I talked to said that he had a buick riviera, like mine, & it was the trottle control sensor but was not throwing any code. Is this a possibility?

    Thanks for your help.

    I guess that it is possible as it is in the sistem, I just haven't seen that problem, just make sure all MAP compomnets are on it and good connection are good
