So I keep reading about trouble codes and I read the service manual about where the ECCS is and how to run the self test. I see the lights, but is the screw on top? Do I have to pull the **** thing out to run the tests so I can get to the screw? Getting it out will be a chore and seems a lot less useful if you have to pull it all the way out every time you need to do anything with it.

I know my car runs like crap, it would be nice to run the self test to at least get an idea of where to start rather than replacing everything. Thanks.

when ever i do the self test on my 88, i pull the pass side kick panel (below the dash) then i think there is one 10mm bolt holding the ecu in place.. remove that and pull the ecu out far enough to see the top.... the screw is on top i believe.. its kind of tucked into the ecu.. but visible.. be very gentle.. hope this helps.. its not that hard to do.. just be gentle with the ecu.

I didn't try too hard, but the big red clamp holding the back made it look like it would be a little more work than that. I removed the 2 crews holding it to the body, but I couldn't get it to come out enough to get to the top without removing the door sil plate, pulling the carpet back, pulling all the plugs, then pulling it about 3 to 4 inches out to clear the clamp in the back.

If I have to do this more than once, it looks like it would be easier to buy a second one to plug in for testing. Is that the case?

you are making a bigger deal of this then it needs to be just remove the screws and the carpet trim then pull back on the clamp that holds it in jeesh
