Guess my CEL...

Ok, well i'll be taking my car down to autozone/advance auto, store with OBD-II scanner to find out what the CEL is but here's my scenario. CEL comes on at stop light, haven't been running the engine too hard, ran it hard for a 1-2 shift about 5 min before. About 5 min later as i get off the highway with my CEL, i pull up to the light push my clutch in and the car dies. I crank it up and its fine, head back on my way. Get downtown and stop at a light. Get ready to go and the car stalls, crank it up stalls again. No power below like 3krpm. End up burning my clutch a little taking off from 4.5 krpm. There definitely is a problem, lol. We'll get to the concert (which was a blast, 12 Stones and Three Days Grace). When i leave the car runs fine, i was real easy on it and had no problems whatsoever.

Lets see who can guess the CEL. I'll tell ya the correct answer when i check it out tomorrow.

report. Running rich on Bank 1. This isn't the CEL thrown because of butterfly valve removal is it?

i cleaned my MAF when my car was running to lean...but for about 6 months i ran w/o the butterfly valve and it ran fine...cleaning the MAF is a good idea every now and then...you should do it just for the hell of it...but i doubt thats your problem but i dont know much
