alright the olds when its cold out i start it and it idles way high as normal.
Not to high but you know normal but it seems like it wants to cut it out like.
It kinda bogs for a good 20 seconds then when it warms up like a little in a sec it stops then drops idle to like normal 600 i think it is idk i don't got a rpm gauge yet so would this be like the o2 sensor i notice i don't have that great of gas mileage like its kinda in the down range of 300 a tank i bet or 2 something so 'm change that and come back see if it fixes it. cause i have done complete tune change the fuel filter like 5 different times due to it clogging change oil. runs good accept the weird lopping idle

just changed the thermostat grew enough balls to maneuver around all the shit with the one bolt that had to use a wrench to get off. Jesus what a pain then i get the housing off and find out there's not even a thermostat. so the 6 dollar one had a new home and easy install
