I am not sure about other years but this is in the FSM for 1997

New tps. The intake coolant switch is about the only thing I haven’t changed.

Yeah, so the lugnuts were coming off the wheel and that was the vibration and noise. Someone forgot to torque them down... SMH

Oh and they also said my idle air motor or something was sticking closed, hence the bad idle at 400rpms.

Walked out with the truck working for $0

I think they might mean that 'motor' in your air cleaner. Try spraying some WD40 into it.

Lugnuts? Oh, brother. At least you didn't shear off the lug nuts on your way back to that shop...

that is the very reason that all wamart tire and lube centers MUST take the car out and perform two figure 8s in the parking lot. then they drive it back in the bay and recheck the torque on each lug.

I always check it again after I've driven for a little while, or next time I see the car if it's not mine. Conversely, I've dealt with a couple of vehicles where the wheels had been on there for so long that the center of the wheel was rusted to the hub. All safety concerns aside I was able to get them unstuck by loosening up the lug nuts and leaving them in there finger tight then driving the over the pothole ridden parking lot at 30-40 mph. Once the car starts shaking wildly you know they're unstuck.

Downgraded my insurance on the truck to a non driving status. 20 bucks a month less. All it has is comprehensive coverage with a 500 deductible while it is parked.

That's it? $20 less a month? Mine will cost $40/year if I hibernate the truck. Stupid car costs almost 800/year for insurance. It's stupid. I do like the fuel usage though.
