Default Here's the prices for an ECM at Oreilly's Auto parts

Hope this shows up.

yeah it shows up but when you add it to your cart it says 0 quantity available. i also went by o'reillys the other night with the stock number and they don't have it in their computer.

i am going by a tuner shop nearby today to ask about the reflashing then i am going to look into the fuse links. since they would have gotten wet with the rinsing of the engine.

one other thing that i noticed after the car died on me and limped it home was that the hose from the intake to the charcoal canister was not attached. i don't know how long it had been that way. it could have been that way since i bought it. but it ran perfectly 16 months.

Default Good luck....

Good luck with the ECM.
I don't remember the canister hoses routing but I would reattach it.
I'm surprised the little yellow "check engine" light on the dash wasn't on. When it does light it's a Emission problem.
Also, something I remembered last night. On my present car, if the Battery isn't totally 100% (getting old) it starts "throwing codes" on the instrument panel and door modules, seat modules and interior lights all go crazy. I also know that if the ECM isn't receiving a full 12 volts, it will shut down. So, possibly with your car shutting down after 10 minutes of running it maybe trying to tell you something.
So, How's the battery and alternator?

Let us know what happens,
Jerry

well i had to but this on the back burner for the time being. my daily driver toyota truck needed some repairs. idler arm broke and driver side tire was wearing on the inside down to almost threads. got that fixed today and tomorrow get the 26 year old busted shocks replaced.

the battery is getting some age and not sure about alternator but once the weather gets better, next 4 days don't look good, those will be looked into.

i was looking at the forums and saw this post i made. i have a great update.

so at the end of july i sent my ecm off to a company on ebay, ecuexchange. they replaced all 3 capacitors and fixed the power supply. the guy, kyle, said they beefed up other areas that are known to fail.

the day before i planned to hook it up i went and got 5 gallons of ethanol free 93 octane. i opened the gas lid and got swarmed by wasps. i ended up with about 6 different nests around the car. gas cap area, the hinges of both doors, under the hood and in the cowl grill area. i found on the net that a squirt bottle with a little dish soap is not good for them. i spent about 10 days de-wasping the car.

i bought a new motorcraft battery and battery cables. i get the key, get in the car and turn. it fires right up. the timing may still be a little off, i need a timing light, but it runs and sounds right. i have about 25 miles on it.

i was hoping to be ready for the mustang meet that is going on at lake hiawassee in northern georgia this weekend but i need to get 2 tires before i do could do those miles. i posted a video on reddit of it being alive. i will add it here. this was just a few minutes after the first key turn.

Wow! What a experience for you. I have considered of giving that guy a try at ecu exchange on ebay, because my 89 GT has gone thru 3 A9P ecuís since 2013. My 89 SSP still is on her original A9P ecu.
