Glad you're getting there. Now get those brakes fixed!

Once you get the brakes fixed, evaluate where you are with normal tune up items, you know, plugs, wires, O2 sensors, PCV valve, fuel filter, clean MAF screen and throttle body. That kind of stuff. It really makes a difference in how well your car runs.

Sorry it took me so long to reply back on what happened. I went through a lot of crap, no one was telling me what was going on and it'* my car. I got the EGR valve replaced and it ran a lot better. I finally got the break line replaced, and I decided I am going to do the others myself and I'm gonna see about getting flexsteel hoses while I'm at it. Also my mom decided she would listen to the one guy on why the car wouldn't start when low on fuel, he told her it was the aftermarket fuel pump we put in. I had told her this a long time ago and several times since but she never listened. Well she listened to him and decided I needed a new fuel pump...even though I can't afford it too. She ended up paying for it because I wouldn't of done it right now. Anyways, it'* a Gen IV Delphi...she insisted on a Delco so I found one good priced that we could get fast and she ordered the wrong one. That'* alright though, this ones really good, lower power requirements and built to the same standards as the Delco. It works perfect car no longer has problems when low on fuel and the stalling is gone, it even starts when near a quarter tank.

Glad your are getting it going now! Before you do those brakes, do a search here on Brakes and read up on doing it right. Then if you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Yeah I already did that, I found a lot of really good stuff, found out what tools I needed and all. I practiced doing some double flanging and it'* really easy. Only other thing I gotta look for on here is to see if anyone has done the flexsteel hoses. I wanna do thatem, but I'm not sure of what exactly I need.

I did a couple quick searches and didn't find anything, yet. Maybe you'll have to be the guinea pig and try them out, unless someone here knows of a reason why they wouldn't work?
