Drove if around and it seemed to run a bit better, although cold it runs fine anyway other than the higher idle. It seemed to idle better. However..... Once warmed up the same old problem came back. The other temp sensor will be here tomorrow.
One other thing I did today, I cut off the hot wire at the battery and put a new clamp on it. Lots of corrosion in the strands. Cleared as much out as I could. The old clamp was broke and couldn't be tightend up, though it was pretty solid. There was a ton of green stuff on the head when I got the car. Swapped out the battery but didn't change the clamp. Figured it would be good to make sure that was right.
Bottom line is.... Cold = solid running. Warmed up = rough running and missing throughout the driving range.
There ain't no party like a Detroit party...
