    91 Sport Poor Running; Help Diagnosing!

    I understand what you are saying clogging up the system isn't good IE stuffing a rag in your exhaust (or classic banana) or a plugged drain at home. However I would imagine this would affect more the overall running performance which I maybe used to have more; however now it seems to slight...

    Is it possible to take the whole 4x4 w/e off?

    FYI (4X2) no biggy, but yes it has improved lots however it also depends on the transmission, I have noticed a difference between Std and Auto's also the auto's (never will be a fan!) are smoother feeling due to the torque converters and computer systems that control them.

    Aftermarket lights

    Have you checked the fan circuit? also does the fan come on and operate normally when you want? Ie lights off. Second of all I would note that it is good practice to always run a relay instead of the load through the switch. But that's not really a concern with your current settup as I...
