Over a month ago I appealed to this newgroup for help with what I
thought was a fuel problem. You good folks steered me toward
investigating an ignition module malfunction, possibly a pick-up
malfunction, and a throttle body cleaning. I'm back to report to you
I've had success and the problem was indeed the ignition module. The
pick-up was fine and I cleaned the throttle body for good measure (it
needed it although the plate was not sticking as far as I could tell).
Thanks, again, for all the input. I learned a lot and even went so
far as to buy the Haynes maintenance manual for future reference. I
saved a bunch of money by not having to take the car to a mechanic.
I'm always happy to help a mechanic earn a living when it is necessary
but when I can do it myself I prefer to go that route. Thanks guys
for being available and helping me out. Just wanted you to know
