To anyone who can answer this. Every time i start my car and leave work for example my car lags in acceleration and doesnt wanna shift correctly but when it gets warmed up and driven for a little bit its fine. Anyone know what the problem could be??

I just had a very similar problem with my 95 bird. Have you cleaned the MAF lately? Once I cleaned mine the problem went away and hasn't come back.
Hopefully that helps.

Mine does that sometimes after work or in the mornings when I just jump into and back up...it shakes and about dies...I have to stop for a few seconds then it kicks in, no problems after that at all. Think that may be the maf also?

I have that prob with my '94 as well, cleaned the maf, new plugs, etc...I think the computer must take like 15 minutes to complete its "Boot" cycle...LOL, that is my only guess...or maybe our computers are like....pre-pentiums?!? Ok, sorry for the bad joke, but I had to :D

Guys, I don't know how to check it, but if your IAC is crap, your cold engine and idle will be problems.

I used to have codes, engine shaking, and all sorts of crap. Turned out both my MAF was shot and my IAC. Now my engine runs smooth as silk.
