First off I would like to say thanks for all your help so far. Secondly, I have a couple of questions. Well heres my story, I just got the car running about a month ago and had nearly the entire fuel system replaced (due to sitting for 3 years) I had some of the ignition system replaced also. Well the car was running quite slow and had trouble starting when cold. I replaced the OVP, well after I replaced it the car stumbled for about a minute and was idling at about 1000rpm, I drove it and it accelerated like a rocket, but then the car acted as if the throttle was stuck (car would maintain about 30mph with my foot off the gas) I floored the accelerator a few times and the problem went away but then it started driving like it did before I replaced the OVP, it starts much easier then before but doesnt accelerate like it did. OVP is brand new and ABS still works. Thanks for your help.

P.S. I was wondering, what is this thing that is below the coolant resevoir, it is some type of coolant pump cause I can feel it vibrating with the key on, what is the purpose of this?

Sounds like your linkage is sticking or binding. Get in under the air cleaner (remove it) and work the linkage by hand, see if you can feel any hard spots or binding. Check the link to the cruise actuator. This can bind and cause problems. The "thing" under the coolant resevoir is the coolant circulating pump. Comes on line when you ask for heat.. What you describe sounds normal..

No matter what you fix, there will always be something else to fix..
