I was looking around on the net, and it says one of the common symptoms of a bad ECU (caps) that your dash has a "tick" (no, not like lifter tick) is this true for 3000/Stealths?
PS. On a side note, i was told my orange glowing turbos wasnt a normal thing, and that i'm probably running rich and was wondering if that can be linked to the ECU? And if it is, should i buy a new one, or get it rebuilt?
A bad ecu can cause a lot of thigs to go wrong. random cel, car running like shit and stalling etc.... It can make a noise, mine did right before it went. If your turbos are glowing they are hot, let them cool (get a turbo timer). If you are running rich if could be many things. Boost leak/ bad o2's ... I would have AV PRO rebuild it, there the best. Good luck.

yeah, it seems to run fine. Idles pretty nice, barely any hesitation (under WOT there is a tiny bit). But there is a bit of an oil burn (VSS and Turbos i think). But that was the first time i've ever seen the turbos glow orange, just got a bit worried.
