Clean the injectors and add some fuel aditive to nice fresh fuel and let it run through and see if that clears anything up. If that does not remedy I would check the TPS or IAC. The TPS may be wiggling and loose causing the pcm to send improper fuel to the engine. The IAC may be plugged cau

TPS is the throttle position sensor and the IAC is idle air control. They are both located near the throttle body. (Where the air intake hoses go to the engine)

WHAT I'M ASKING WITH THE WIRE THAT SENDS A SIGNAL TO THE GAGE, SENDS POWER TO OTHER CONTOLS THAT COULD MAKE IT MISS AT IDLE LIKE IT WAS A IDEL

Yes, it could. The coolant temp sensor picks up on coolant temp and sends the signal to the coolant temp sending unit that sends a signal to the pcm adjusting hte fuel mixture and one to the guage.

What is next in line after the coolant temp sensor is the coolant temp sending unit. That is waht sends the temp to the PCM and the guage.
