You can check mil codes, yourself. There should have at least be a code 12. How long since a tune-up? Use a gage and check fuel pressure. Clean the throttle body and idle air control.

What is engine litre size? The aldl/datalink connector is usually along lower edge of dash. You turn the key just till the dash lites com on, no further. Use jumper wire between A & B terminals at aldl. Then the mil stats flashing, you count the flashes to get the codes. Your looking for two digit codes. The idle air comrol is on the throttle-body. The accelerator linkage goes to the throttle body.
i really dont know much about cars thats the problem
THE ENGINE IS A 3.3 LITER 3300 V6 VIN ENGINE CODE N COMPRESSION RATIO 9:1 FIRING ORDER 1-6-5-4-3-2 KNOW THAT CONNECTOR IS IT LIKE A PLUG WHERE THEY HOOK UP THE HANDHELD DIANASTIC AND IF SO THERE IS A BLACK WIRE AND A BLACK,WHITE WIRE AND A ORANGE WIRE THATS IT THAT GOES BACK OF THAT PLUG KNOW THE PIC I SEE IF IT IS EXSACT LIKE THE ONE IT THE CAR UNDER THE DASH ITS NOT LETTERED BUT IF I GO WITH THE PIC IT LOOKS LIKE THE A IS THE BLACK WIRE AND THE B IS BLACK AND WHITE WIRE AND DO YOU HAVE A PIC FOR A idle air comrol, the throttle-body CUZ I THINK I KNOW WHERE THE THROTTLE IS LOCATED LIKE IF CAR IS RUNNING THERES A THROTTLE THING LOOKS A LIKE WHERE U MOVE AND IT EXCELERATES KNOW ALSO THE WIRES THAT CONNECTS TO THE A,B TERMINALS DO U NEED A TESTER OR CAN U TAKE IT OUT FROM THE PLUG AND SEE IT THAT WAY.

All I can tell you is what my database shows. The aldl is a diagnostic connector.
With the idle air control, look at the wire colors for the connector.
