after taking my car apart for a turbo kit i didnt get a few parts i needed in the mail in time before i have to take it to school so i put the turbo X member and sway on and put my intake manifold back on, plugged everything back in and reattached all vacuum lines. When i cranked her up she was putting and just sounding terrible and smelling wayyyyy to rich. when i plugged the car into my computer it threw some codes;

-vehicle speed sensor A malfunction
-02 sensor circuit malfunction (obvious what this is)
-manufacturer control fuel air metering
-Manufacturer vehicle speed idle speed control auxilary inputs
-MAP/Baro/CKT Range/Perf
i am supposed to leave on saturday for school and this sucks.anyone have any advise on what to look at?

Check for Spark could be the coil pack, if its the one that sits on top of the engine, check for carbon tracks. Hope this helps a bit.

i think it could be the coilpack...just last week i had the hood popped and when i put my hand close to it i got a little shock so i need to replace the either way. also could be exactly why my car runs so bad in the rain if the coilpack gets wet...i think that makes sense, correct me if im wrong. and how would i check for carbon tracks?

did u put the ground wire back on next to the coil pack?
if the ground wire is the only coilpack wires that connect to the left of it then yes. i dont see any other wires or connections coming from it. and it was running for a while just fine for about a month before this problem started just the other day.
