maybe a grounding issue that's causing the readings

I figured so, but I tested continuity on grounds and I also checked the coils for resistance and they are all in spec, and I never got ANY codes on my Peake tool.

If needed, I have a friend with a GT-1 for a more thorough scan and then I can look around for a SnapOn or Mac reader if this concern rears its ugly head again

you need something that can plug into the OBD2 port and get real time readings off the sensors so you can watch everything while you drive the car

Your right, its OBDI. that would be fun

if it was obd, a simple android app would do. I have torque and a bluetooth scanner and I get live engine data from all sensors.

I guess that's yet another reason not to own a 95 haha!

Oh well, I think that I have more than corrected all of the reasons not to own a 95 at this point.
