Guys, we can't be throwing out "check/replace this" scenarios on this one. The OBDII has to be fixed, so he can get a starting point, or he could spend thousands on "maybe it's this". something the pcm is looking for is missing or out of range, and with OBDII, you need to see the data that the PCM is providing to accurately repair it. Get the scanner communication thing fixed, and get the codes and some of the data stream, and it will be much easier and less expensive to repair. There are literally hundreds of parameters that the PCM is using to monitor and adjust this engine, which one is off kilter?
