Since my original posting:
I took to local shop and had them pull the "codes" ...
1. Crankshaft position sensor error code
2. CamShaft Sensor / Distributor error.
I ordered the parts from Rock Auto: A new distributor and new crankshaft position sensor. I installed the new crankshaft position sensor (very simple). Instead of replacing the entire distributor, I replaced the camshaft sensor, the rotor and distributor cap (all from the new distributor I bought). It now starts and idles great, and runs under a load a little better ...BUT it still at random times kind of stalls when accelerating and doesnt run smooth at all. Immediately aftyr i started for the first time the check engine light went of (first time in years!) but when i ran it and turn off then started back up the light cam back on. I cannot figure this thing out!!!!! Please someine advice other than a BFH!
