You "middle aged" folks are just highschoolers posting pictures of your parents... I just know it. It'* all a conspiracy to keep the younger members under control.



Chrichey, why didn't I see it sooner?

I made a couple promises. Anyway, cover me. I'm going to try an emergency patch on the trans, get some fluid in it, try to get it to idle up to temp, and perhaps try the trans up on blocks. Gotta get this idle sorted out and settled in for the car to go to trans.

You sure the IAC needs a relearn? It doesn't on Series II motors, but you can do a TPS relearn that goes like this;

Key on, 0% TPS, key off after 5 seconds.

TPS 100%, key on, key off after 5 seconds.

Repeat steps above 3 times.

Also, take that breather off the valve cover and put the oil cap back on, that'* ummetered air that eventually makes it through the PCV and into the motor.

Cheers,

Damn Bill, the Zilla pulled through again, good to hear. These cars are getting old, therefore they learn slowly. These cars are getting old, therefore they learn slowly. These cars are getting old, therefore they learn slowly. These cars are getting old, therefore they learn slowly. These cars are getting old, therefore they learn slowly. These cars are getting old, therefore they learn slowly.

I repeted that several times for Bill, he is getting old.
