even if i pull fuel, the trims read the same in this area....
i posted a while back about this. here is the deal. on decel (dfco is disabled) the trims go way negative on my every time i log no matter how much fuel i pull in the ve. ok now i went to the ve and smoothed it out and almost doubled the numbers in the upper left corner, went out for a ride and the trims were -15ish. well with all that fuel taken back out, the trims still are at -15ish. im just afraid to pull out too much fuel in this area and cause issues. with fuel taken out my numbers are in the teens and 20's. can someone comment on this and let me know? thanks
If I remember correctly, deceleration "generally" maps to FTC 21. Here is my opinion (your original post sparked me to study this):
The values for FTC 20, 21, and 22 are learned between the time when car first goes into open loop and the evap begins to purge (or is done purging, I can't remember off the top of my head -- but regardless it happens shortly after starting the car). Once they are learned, it locks for the duration. Thus, the VE cells that the car is in during your deceleration are NOT the sames ones that FTC 21 was learned in. I would look in your log to see what VE cells they are actually learning in and change those to affect your decel issue.
