I totally agree with you but since he was working on something else I didn't want to have to have him do it twice. He probably could have tested it but I was nervous about making sure my computer did not get fried. I'll keep you posted after I drive it to see if I need round three LOL.

I have a scan tool that monitors sensor signals in real time.  You just hook it up, scan the computer, and it will show you all the sensor values. Your mechanic could have done that, in 5 minutes.

He may have had a tool like that but I didn't even ask. This shop is far from state of the art but they are pretty good and honest. It was me who was impatient. I took the car for a quick ride and I think it's better but it's a little early to tell. After Corona in the spring I still would like to come over the bridge and have you drive it just to compare cars.

Larry, you were on the money with the tps. It stopped choking or stuttering.

I must have arrived after he was named but it fits. If it happens again I know what to do and I did get an AC Delco.
