Coolant looks fine, I havent had to add any in a while now. Oil gauge is usually past 40, in-between there and the next line. It goes down while not on the gas though.

If all three of these coils are the originals I wouldn't expect the primaries to vary that much. Can you borrow a coil from someone & see if it helps?

Well it seemed to be doing better, but now when it'* getting colder again it'* getting worse... Again, it doesn't wanna run very well when cold but seems to be ok once it gets warmed up. I think I may just take it in since it'* gonna be in the -10*F area coming up this Fri-Sun...

Since it'* been really cold up here the last week it seems everything is going to hell... my battery was old and I kept having to get jumped, so I replaced it. I put in a new IAC valve today hopefully this will take care of the rough idle while cold.
And now my ECC is blinking, possible actuator is what it'* looking like. Also, it looks like it shows up after a battery change, why is this??? I have to go back into the glove box again, I did it once and forgot which hole to look in and was too cold to keep workin on it.

Well, the IAC seemed to help this morning. It wasn't acting up all the way to school until the last stoplight where it tried to sputter or whatever it'* doing. The rpms drop to under 1000, every sputter causes the headlights to dim... The battery is brand new, would you expect the lights to dim this way???
