I think its safe to say that Soul Hunter Nailhead and Myself REALLY want to see YOU fix this thing.
If you learn your setup well you will never need a "mechanic" to look at it for you.
If you can find an older OBD 1 scanner for a reasonable price that would be helpful in the future, but not totally necessary.
Drewnashty is kickin down too.
