    Resolder the check control module and the problem is solved. Here 16 pages in German, but the pics will help

    thanks for d quick reply...

    was wondering... if a lot of weird things like this are happening to my car now... can it be possible that my rough idle is due to some electrical fault?

    coolant sensors are ok... air leaks seem to be in check... airflow sensor is ok...

    what else should i look for?

    pulse generator? what does this do?

    also, i saw disconnected sensor, it somehow is attached ( a ring around d cable) to one of the wires coming from d distributor, going to a connection somewhere to d left side of the engine... connected it... still nothing... what is this?

    Post a picture of that sensor.
    Also check the battery voltage and charging voltage, too low voltage can also cause such funny things.
