By the way I bought the car! just doing some routine maintainence. Yesterday i changed the oil, filter, air filter, spark plugs, and today I would like to figure out the distributor cap and roater for $65!!! ghead I was just getting familiar with the engine and it doesn't seem that hard to work with actually it seems very easy to work with.

Oh yeah another question what makes the engine in park idle irratically, it's only a couple hundred RMP not to major.

It's stock. WHAT!

Thanks man

Also anyone know if it has a power steering fluid container if so where is it? or is it rack and pin steering?

One other thing I heard somewhere that if the transmission fluid hasn't been changed for awhile that it's not recomended that you do it because it expands the parts then when you change it with new clean fluid that the parts are loose or something, true or not? Reason i'm asking is that it's pretty damn dirty right now.

It's stock. WHAT!

yes it is rack and pinion, and yes it has a power steering resevoir, its the round looking thing on the drivers side of the engine compartment, with the ZF on top. yes you can change your ATF, oh and make sure you put ATF in the power steering not "power steering fluid"
