89bonnie_LE is on a distinguished road

yeah, it was the throttle position sensor, it was tellin' the injectors the throttle was open. so we drove it to my house yesterday, well attempted to, (it was in sault ste marie 4 hours away) and it made it as far as about 1/2 an hour away from my house, right after a big a** bridge. so it overheated, and i tried to drive it home today, and it overheated, stalled, and died again, so i replaced the thermostat, and all was good. then tonight i went to a friends house, and it started steaming, but the temp gauge wasn't past 1/4 warm, and i remember that i thought i had broken the crappy clamp when i was putting the hose back on, so i'm pretty sure it was shootin' coolant all over, so i went and got a new ring-clamp, and put it on, but the SOB is stil steaming, i still think it'* the clamp thing b/c the clamp i bought was a POS from wal-mart (b/c it'* 11:30 at night, and it'* the only thing open) so i think i'm going to try and find a better one, and one that fits a lil better, b/c this one is kinda big and didn't tighten down real well. let me know if u know of anything else it might be. i'm supposed to drive it to work tomorrow (45 minutes away, and over the big a** bridge again) thanx
