    I solved it, but I'm not sure how.

    Basically, I took the pan off again, took off the valve cover, sprayed degreasers through every oil channel I could find. The only sludge at all was the light...

    How would I know if the ECM was bad? I mean, if the idle is too low, or the MAF is bad, or I'm running rich, I should be getting error codes, right? And the ECM controls the fuel/air mixture and idle...

    No. It's becoming a time vampire. :)

    The engine is running rich, the plugs (NGKs) are fouling with carbon (not oil), the car hits a low idle or almost stalls when decelerating, and when it's hot...

    Thanks, Mike. I pulled open the throttle body, but it was pretty darned clean, though I'm not sure what to look for. I toothbrushed it with some cleaner and got a thin layer of soot, but nothing...

    I've done a bit more googling, and one site where a similar case was discussed said that 30 weight oil would be too thin for fully synthetic oil in a 9-5, and that could make the light come on. I...

    Yes, or rather, my mechanic buddy did. There were two, and I don't remember them. One was that the fuel was burning too rich, and the other was something else like that. As soon as he read them he...
  9. Just changed oil pressure switch, and now oil light comes on, and other things.

    I've had a 1999 9-5 for about a month now. I bought it and drove it 2000 miles home, and it ran great, with two problems--a Check Engine light, and an oil leak. The CEL was nothing--I changed the...
