yup thanks got all set now. Almost crossed the wires wrong in that back,but double checked right before I restarted her. Next on the list tranny fuild , cooling system flush. The shops around here wanted to charge me $175 for tune up. With fuel filter,ac delco double plat plugs,air filter,fuel inj cleaner it cost me $43. What a rip off it took me about 45-60 for the job and i imagine they could done it faster.

They just charge that much because people will pay it. They charge you about double for the parts, and at $60-80/hr labor, that makes what they charge right in the ballpark. To me, its nowhere near worth that price.
