ok...running lean..first( cheap) put 2 bottles zmax fuel additive in it and drive it.. if its still running lean change the 02 sensors...if that doesnt fix it put attn...rat....on this post

I replaced o2 sensors right after the manifolds wich are really the only ones that matter and the TPS and nothing happened. But then I unplugged the o2 sensors and reset the ecu wich got rid of it if you slowly accelerate but if you pop the throttle it falls on its face. By the way thanks for answering
