Thanks.

We are coming down closer and closer to the ECM.

I would suggest removing it and have someone test it for you to confirm it is good or it is faulty. Make sure you tell whoever gets it to check it when it heats up.

I already replaced it with a new one that was programmed to my VIN number.

Bought it from Advance Auto parts. Had to give them my old one as a core. Costed me over $160.00.

Okay, there is no programming for OBD1. It is a plug and play.

None of this makes any sense at all. Other possibilities are wiring harness related. Let me see if I can get a diagram of the system but the testing will be tough.

Do you have a load pro leads for your voltmeter?

This is not a obd1. If you look at my rpm video closely, you will see that I'm using a obd2 meter.

All I have is a little multi-meter with the red and black test leads.

In order to do the proper testing, you need something that can detect a short or open circuit.

Go to Amazon and type in load pro by Dan Sullivan. The leads should be about $35.00. You can use them on your meter. Then we can do some load testing of the wiring.

Found this one for $48.00. That is still too much. Check back every day. I just bought a set for myself as mine wore out after 10 years.

I checked eBay but they has nothing and I am not a fan of them anyway.

No, that is a test light that just tests for powers and ground.

It cannot load test a circuit at all.

I can send you to YouTube for the demonstration for using it. I use it when I teach my basic and advanced electric classes for testing circuits.

Go to YouTube and type in load pro by Dan Sullivan.

I attached the link for you to view.

Hey Roy, found out Advance Auto gave me the wrong ECM. Swapped it out with the one that Cardone says goes with my VIN number and I also got a better brand MAF sensor and put on it. It will start up good and runs for a while but it lopes and acts like it wants to shut off still. Took it down the road about a mile or so hit 80 mph easily, but still lopes when I parked it. So, now where does that leave me?

Okay, the idle air control is a common failure for the rough idle.

I would replace it. I attached a picture of the location for you.
