  1. just to follow up, yes that was it. the throttle body must not have been on right. i took it back off and spent a lot of time getting it lined up and after that it ran fine. also, i had difficulty removing the alternator. now that i have done it, to make it easier, i would do this: the alternator is held on by two bolts, the bolt closer to the passenger side screws into a bushing. loosen the bolt maybe a mm or two and hammer it inward to move that bushing towards the front of the car. if you move it a mm or two, it will make removal 100x easier. hope this helps.
  2. Hello, I just changed my AOS and everything seemed to go smoothly, but on restart the car runs rough, stalls after a few seconds, and makes sounds like small backfires. i was thinking maybe i have a leak somewhere. would this be the correct symptoms? maybe i didnt put the throttle body on correctly? i had difficulty with that part, but i thought i got it on there right. any ideas? thanks
