Default electrical mystery?????(Fixed)

HEY, I have a 94 bonny 3.8 non super charged, had my dude check every square inch for bad idle with no luck,as soon as he put it up on the hoist it started to run great.
lowered it off hoist it ran bad again, made me lmao, he says wiring harness routing on this car has been a fault because it goes too close to engine, does this ring true with anyone??? wire scan next stop?
thanks, paul

With any 17 year old car, many things can be an issue. Maybe a tb cleaning is in order. Overall we haven't seen a lot of harness issues.

i would let it run outside and grap a hold of stuff and wrench it around until it changes tone, maybe you can track something down
