Help! Code 44 Check Engine light
« on: March 24, 2012, 09:50:16 AM »
I found a code 44 associated with my check engine light.  What is a code 44?

Help!

I guess it would help if I added that the car is a 1984 Trans Am with the L69 5.0 liter HO.  All stock as far as I know.  The car also runs rough during idle after warming up.  It also has a tendency to quit when going into reverse or going into 1st gear.

You must have a 3rd gen. If I remember right that's an O2 sensor lean reading.

Thanks Larry!

That sounds right, hopefully get it taken care of soon!

I found some very informative stuff about the Rochester Carb, most of you are probably familiar to this stuff anyway... ;)
