check resistance of temp. sensor "top radiator hose right by head" move it around see if you get change in idle..... have you ruled out iac? Could be leaky capacitors on bored of computer that usually causes more then one problem and sensor will show proper resistance but computer will show code....tps sensor?????? Electrical prob..... vac prob.... intake gasket leaking???? Leaking throttle plate ???? Rule of thumb if you don't want to spend the $ on a mechanic get yourself a manual and spend hours/years on the net.... PS.. If a friend helps you out pay him even if he tells you "I don't want the $" give it to him anyway or next time he may have better things to do...... DSM Topher

Sorry lol only when climate control is on try first one I posted then start reading on forums.... DSM Topher
