I want to sell it but can't afford a decent car, and it has 53k on it!!!! Any help before I drive it into the lake would be appreciated. Thanks!



Yours is a 1995. I would check the vacuum hoses to the IMRC to see if they are cracked or hooked wrongly. Looks like you do not have vacuum to close the butterflies at low RPM.
