    Default cold running problem

    sometimes ya just cant get a break can ya... my 84 was running decent not great but decent and i knew from some of the responses i had gotten on her e i had some parts to replace, so i did, i have a whole lundry list of things i have replaced,
    ICM
    MAP
    TPS
    EGR
    Plugs and wires most recently

    now just for kicks i guess its messin with me!! now when i get in it when its stone cold the car just does not want to run starts and idles fine but sputters a bit when ya give it some throttle... and going down the road is no fun at all cause it will barely get out of its own way! if i give it any sort of gas it sputters and sounds like its gonna stall before it finally jumps to life and sputters up to speed. once its gone down the road and has some time to warm up its all good... put the pedal tot he floor and without hesitation it jumps to lfe (as good as a stock 84 can)

    come on guys lets get those brains workin this morning !!
