You need a Haynes manual! Please get one!

They aren't the greatest, but are a decent starting point for troubleshooting, specs, wiring, etc.

Well if any of the auto parts store had any I would have one but until the one I ordered comes in it would be great to get some stuff done also I'm not sure how much help it will be because a prevues owner of my car switched it to a fuel rail injection system!! :/

So someone converted it to electronic fuel injection?

Also $5.94 used + $3.99 shipping.
on amazon.

hmm.. it might be nice...

great if done correctly.. sounds like $1,000 to me..

but it may be a real hands on kind of thing to keep it in check.. may not be a simple thing to understand and make it work/keep it working well..

If it's just the fuel it's not that bad. Speaking from experience, trying to get the fuel AND ignition working in the same ECU at the same time is a pain. :-/ Hindsight is 20/20.

Ha, I was pretty out of it on pain meds when I posted this.

Ah well, good advice, though!
