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
Good job. Take some of the money you saved and buy the GM Shop manual. The
Haynes is a poor manual and is a table prop at best.
I own the GM manual for all of my GM cars and they were worth every penny.
