      I never can have one full "good" day. I think the universe is plotting against me. Oh well, I just got another one and will put it in before Easter lunch tomorrow.

          Actually, not nearly enough! So many things to do, so little time in the day.

                you have a good wife!!!!

                also with some bad news:(

                right once i thought i was done...

                well CEL came on, blinked i hit the gas went away.
                So i do stomp test, and were looking at code 1222 which is the lambda thing:( worst one. Ugh!
                So i went back and checked the vacuum lines, they all appear to be good... tightened them down a bit also..
                Coolant system is bled..
                Pushed oil dipstick holder all the way down.. i realized it wasnt all the way down..
                ... still spits the code.
                The car surges idle from 600-1000 then after its warm 600-800ish... at idle
                For now plans are fuel pressure, leak down test... and while im at it compression also.
                Anyone have any insight on what else i could check for now?

                        Look at your 02 sensor and AFM.

                              For your o2 sensor, check resistance with ohms. Don't want to test volts.
