Did you change your plugs and 02 sensor? I know when I had the ATF trick done it messed with both. My idle jumped around a little and you could see my A/F guage going nuts during idle. Try replacing your 02 sensor. Most parts places sell a Bosch universal 02 sensor for about $18. It might help.

The reason why your cats are glowing is because they are clogged to hell and back.Time for a race pipe. As for you idle problem........double check all your vaccum lines and make sure there is abosolutly NO leaks.The TPS sensors are very sensitive so you don't want to mess with them unless it's absolutly necessary.[/quote]

You don't have to **** with their adjustment to test them, and they arent that sensitive, just a plain old potentiometer. Grab a multimeter and make sure they're within the specs at least.[/quote]

yup multimeter thats what i was thinking of
