    Sucks not having a ALDL cable

    Ol Vette wasnt running like she should when cold. Warmed up she ran fine....but when cold she was rough and you had to keep your foot on the pedal to keep her running....so an excuse to tear into her ass Now HPTuners and OBDII is wonderful but these "old" 86's have ALDL....and I had to order the cable so I went "guessing" and replacing...ended up with the following....
    Clean/Polish Throttle body/New Gaskets
    New TPS
    New IAC Valve
    New Plugs/Wires
    New Distributor Cap/Rotor/Coil
    New Air Filter
    New Fuel Filter
    Still ran like shit when cold
    New ECM from NAPA
    Runs like a fine tuned machine now.
    I love "guessing" diagnostics
    Got new GM Vette floor mats and cargo mat...mebbe that is what fixed her!
