    I had someone pushing on throttle to check and make sure butterfly opened up the hole way. And that the linkage from throttle down to tranny was not loose and opperating properly. Replaced and checked for air leaks around vaccum lines and intake

    I didn't replace cable just made sure it was adjusted corectly and moving. Used a snapon tool almost like a tech2 dumped old codes no new codes right now. I did just aquire a fuel pressure reg. That's adjustable. I'm gona put that on recheck fuel pressure.

    Any opinions on torque converter being damaged from the exhaust being welded and the ground wire not at right spot and warped or the bearings in it from the electric flow from welder.

    One more thing. You have cup holders? I have none in my 90, I do have two ashtrays though. If it was tc wouldn't it shudder or just free rev if it were bad?

    I've mig welded on hundreds of cars with absolutely no ill effects, new, old, computer controller, etc. This is not your problem. Tig welding is a different story and I always disconnect the computers and pull them out of the car entirely before Tig Welding at all.
    I may not have any other valuable input here, but Mig welding exhaust is not the problem.

    Why do you think they make isolator tools for electronics when you weld on cars that have sesitive electronics. I seen first hand computer chips fri from just static and your telling me that if someone doesn't ground the mig at the right spot its not gona fry whatever small electrical things the current passes through. Hahaha
