I appreciated the help and advice you gave me about my idling issue. It was a huge help. It cranks now with no issues after replacing the coolant temperature sensor. It seems now that instead of it having been an idling issue it's something else. I dont experience any fluctuation in the RPMs now. But it's accelerating very sluggishly between 1000 and 2500 RPM. Also, it will shift funny, either into the next gear too soon, or not into the next gear at all unless I let off the gas. Then it will shift up. To me it seems like a vaccum issue but I dont really know where to start. If you remember the original post I had already replaced the Idle air controller, the throttle positioning sensor, and PCV valve before you suggested the collant temp sensor. The check engine light stays on constantly now and I dont know if it makes a difference but the door chime continues after taking the keys out of the ignition (no head lights on or anything else).
Saturntech9 say's>You really need to reply on this question you started so I don't have to go to my email and copy and paste what you wrote to me there. So does your car feel like it has a lack of power?Because you say you have to let off the gas to shift that to me sound's like you could have a plugged cat. So what code's do you have you said you have your service engine soon light on.
