    U didn't actually top it off did you? Your only supposed to check the transmission fluid when hot in park with the engine running it should be on one of the x marks... there may be a overflow but its to release pressure really not so much fluid. You could drop the pan and change the filter in...

    Working on a High Idle

    Yea look up inside the old iac valve the shaft may be rusted u can possibly clean it the idle air control valve needs a chance to take over maybe try loosening the back plate screw on the throttle that adjusts the idle down and see if it stays up on its own like around 750rpm also check to see...

    diagnosis of codes and sensor readings

    Yea its coming directly from the computer from pulse width modulation and those same wires are used there are no return wires they just measure resistance and power the sensors on the voltage from those should read a certain voltage with the sensor disconnected.

    diagnosis of codes and sensor readings

    I would say if it is a first gen those numbers look within specs on those numbers. My question is, how did you get the reading for the IAC if its obd1 without a scanner that is capable did you really take all the readings based off the voltage of the sensors? What type of problem are you having>?

    Body swap from 1998 SOHC to 1995 OHV
