My 93 started idling really high. Found a loose bolt on the exhaust manifold. Computer noticed the increased airflow and opened the throttle to compensate. Tightened the bolt, no more problem.

If you had followed the link above, you would have found a detailed description on how to obtain trouble codes using nothing but your key as well as what those codes mean. Wink

I know most of you fix things on your own for engine wiz. This time I'm so happy my husband didn't dick with it to much. The dealer charged $330 for the repair. It was the stepper motor was totally bad and the tps was running at 21%. Thats it.. Running way better and husband didn't blow his weekend trying to tinker with it... Thank you to the moderator and others for all your advice!!!!!!!!!!! Very Happy Very Happy
