It turned out to be the AFM...replaced it and now the idle is rock-solid and the surging/bucking is completely gone. YAY! My gas mileage got 60% better as well from what it seems.
As far as the speedo...I pulled a sensor out of the back of the diff from a junkyard car (2 10mm bolts). Does this sensor control both the speedo AND odometer? I'm hoping that's my problem.
And I can't identify any of the sensors on the coolant flange because I don't have a bentley manual...but if anyone could explain (hopefully with a photo) which sensor is which on that coolant flange, that would be awesome! I am looking for the coolant temp sender for the gauge cluster but I'm not sure which one it is.
Last but not least...what controls the tach signal? Is there a sensor for that too? Thanks you guys, I appreciate it!
