I am as excited as a school girl on prom night now!! It all runs perfect now...they replaced the coil #3 which if I am not mistaken is spark plugs 3 and 4 I think,.but the code was showing a misfire on #3...and they sealed the leak on the cat converter and the car runs smooth and quite...and no ses light...so I am extactic...thanks for all your advice guys..now I just need to replace the LIM gasket and I will be all set...I got a mechanic that I shopped around for to do it for 350.

Yes I also had the mechanic check the hub bearing on the wheels and he said they were fine and not needed to be replaced. Also the rear shocks needs to be redone or new ones put on that is what the thud from the back end is doing. But other then that it drives good and no SES light I am happy. Oh and fix the air mix actuator which will be a pain becuase the dash needs to come out. Also the LIM Gasket ones I get some money saved up.
