think I fixed it for now guys. went a got a new MAF sensor with no luck, and after that frustration passed over, I spotted a brand new fuel filter hanging on my peg board in the garages, the one on the car had only been on for about a year but I figured what the heck , it sure wont hurt it. Thinking it wouldn't change any thing and doing it just for routine maintenance I swapped filters, the old one had black fuel come out. very dirty fuel.
fired it up and instantly it cured the issue. no more bouncing idle issues, no more dying at stop lights, like new again! thanks for all the help and ideas everyone provided me. It'* opened my eyes for future diagnosing and expanded my knowledge a little more on this car.
I'm big into mustangs and their forums, but this olds is my daily and has done me well! I'll be sure to come back here with any questions
