sse1990 is correct, i beat the crap out of the car the last time.. and I have trouble controlling myself, so i put a brick under the pedal to keep me from hurting her. 1/8th throttle is still good power. it'* not completely worthless, that'* for sure.
just replaced the fuel filter, and what do you know, damn car runs 100% better. The idle issues i had, are gone. And although i only moved the car maybe 50 ft, to mow the lawn, it felt much better. No high idle, no low idle.. just perfect 900RPM idle.
Alec: by smooth as glass shifts, i mean it doesn't rattle the entire car. You can feel it shift, but it doesn't shake the car to bits like I used to. I'm still going to play with the modulator, just because i'm curious about it. You are probably right though, but we shall see.
I also picked up a new set of plugs, but i want to drive the car a little more before I install them. Going to make sure the car is running good on the plugs I have. No need to ruin another new set of plugs
Gas is coming tomorrow, for all those curious. The "Low Fuel" indicator has still not shown up on the DIC, so I still have at least 50 miles on the tank.
