If you have the Bentley book, do this. Jumper the computer to put in
open loop. Then check the voltageat the O2 sensor. Should be .4 to .8
volts. Gun the engine, the voltage should swing from 1 to 0 volts.
If when you put the computer in open loop your idle drops like a rock or
the engine cuts out , you
have air intake, ISV or fuel trouble.
