I think we have a winner!

When I first read the subject line, I figured that I would be moving the post from the Office forum to the General Hardware fourm.

"Chip getting HOT is this normal?"

Then I read the text of the post...

Oh man, now nobody else can enjoy it!

For those that care, the OP wanted to know why the chip in his 2000 Chevy Tracker was getting so hot - even after he connected the correct wires to the MAF sensor per the instructions.

How he stumpled into the Office forum and thought he was in the right place boggles the mind.

Might be easier just to fix his truck for him.

Old people don't need companionship. They need to be isolated and studied so it can be determined what nutrients they have that might be extracted for our personal use.

Perhaps he is a travelling salesman and he uses his truck as a mobile office. That could explain it.

Lol, who would use a pickup as a mobile office?!? More like a SUV.

Plus all he would need is a cigarette lighter converter to outlet to plug in the computer, and a battery. No need for a CPU chip under the hood. :)

If you speak to any of the service techs at any car dealership they refer to the electronics in a car a the computer. So, the guy figures CN is a computer forum so they should be able to help him.

As far as posting in the wrong forum goes, that happens with a substantial percentage of posters here. I have mentioned more than once that there needs to be more clarification.

Things never change. Back in 1963 I worked for the City of Detroit as a switchboard operator at the Street Maintenance Dept. I received all manner of calls that were not related to Streets. When I politely tried to steer folks to the correct dept. the standard response was "ain't this the City of Detroit I'm callin?"

Dead horses, robbery in progress, neighbor problems, legal issues, you name it. So I am not surprised by what happens here.

What I want to know is............if I overclock the chip in my car, will it go faster?

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.

Yes it will... same as chrome plating the wheel nuts, you can gain an extra 5mph. (Lowers the wind resistance)

If I put traction bars, loud ( old wore out ) glass packs, and taller tires in the rear of my 1970 ford maverick with a 170 C.I.D. engine will it be able to run a sub 14 sec. quarter mile? <----- These are the kinds of people I grew up with. Guess that is why I almost always had the fastest car lol.
