Not probably. Is OBD1.

Some 1994 and 1995 GM vehicles had OBD 1.5, a hybrid OBD 2 system being tested before OBD became mandatory in 1996.

I'm going to kindly ask you Bill, if you don't know the answer to these technical threads/posts, I'll ask you to refrain from posting in them unless you know the answer 100%. Half guessing is just wasting peoples time and it just confuses people.

Yes exactly. It did sit for a long time. Seems the old man almost never drove it. No noises, just heavy steering feel.

Oh and btw I replaced the knock sensor. It was probably in vain. But the wires sat so hard that once I had gotten the wires out I had ruined the sensor. I don't know what a sensor costs in the US but everything is more expensive in Sweden, as we pay customs and tax on imports. So like a part that you guys are paying $12 for, Ill probably be paying $100 for. With that in mind it'* not as feasible in Sweden to just replace suspect parts one by one to see if anything gets better. The car had 55 000 miles on it and looks brand new and it cost me $1300.
