Not a problem, that's why this website is here and if I see something that I know about, I'll chime in.

Did this car ever have a swap done to it?

nah it has just been sitting for years. just to get it to run i had to replace filters, gas pump, full on tune up that is not evern close to being done but it will be worth it. The gas was so old that you could barley light it with a lighter haha bad times.

Have you ever ran the vender number to see if anything has changed from when it left the factory?

When you say, sitting for years....WOW!!! you are lucky it can even run at all. Have you put some heet in the tank yet? I would or just drain the tank and fill it up with some better gas. If you are going to let it sit for a long time again, I would add some Sta-bilt to the gas tank. Keeps the gas from going bad.

yea i drained the tank from the drain bolt. i got this hsit that works wounders and i recommend this to anyone with fuel troubles. it is called 44k Gold its abot 20 bucks but treats up to like 20 gallons or something. you can tell a diffrence in power, and at the same time it is cleaning the gunk off your valves and pistons and cleaning out the lines and injecters.:)

My brother had a similar problem with a Mazda B2200. When we would fill the tank it would indicate empty. As you drove around it started coming up to about a half a tank where it started reading right. All the way down to empty, again!
