    On second thought, it looks like this probably would not be adaptable for a 13.5V system. You would have to run 18.5V to compensate for the voltage drop, and would need 10-15A diodes to get enough...

    We need to know what the IAC count is on a warmed up engine in Park and then in Drive. Should be 18-23 idling in Park, and about 24-30 in Drive, no climate controls turned on.

    Then we can go on...

    I usually look at the other end of the plug to determine its worthiness. If there is erosion, (within 1k miles) then it was never new.

    Hmm. Perhaps it was time for the 30yr old logic pulser to die. One too many abuses over time. Probably kickback voltage along the ground path. I wish I had more time these days. Don't know how...

    I was referring to the EGR valve, which classifies as a subcritical component, and should not be a high priority unless the gasket has a vacuum leak around it. Everything else on your list needs...

    Time to make 2-cycle-john's shop public knowledge, so we can drop off small bags on fire on his doorstep. It's standard proceedure, you know. Sounds like he didn't replace a thing.
