Just taking a stupid wild ass guess, if it happened in heavy snow, my bet is the air intake was restricted with snow.

??? what codes were in the pcm?the check eng lamp comes on when the pcm detects a failier that is emmision damaging or will exceed emmision thresholds,thus must be repairable.


a moments silence for the shelbyx,i hope her new owner enjoys as much.
