I think i fixed the prob with my trans shifting wierd. It wasn't shifting out of first until about 3k 3500 rpm unless i let off the gas and waited a second or shifted into 2nd manually. Then it would go immediatly into 3rd, then OD seemed to work ok. After doing lots of reading, and talking and some more reading. I adjusted the TPS sensor voltage a little higher, and cleaned the MAF sensor with throttle body cleaner. On the way home from work today it bucked into 2nd the first time. From then on it shifted pretty good, from a stop and while moving.
Gonna drive it easy for the next day or so and see what happens.
I've also got a rack with tie rods coming my way for $40
Now to find some tires and do the alignment, then i'll be ready for some mods, WooHoo!
