The 1995 Montes all had only one oxygen sensor, and that would be the one behind the engine (by the firewall). I believe that's because they were part of the final year of OBD-I, so all 1996 and...

Monty, I had a similar problem a couple of years ago with my '95. It also had what felt like some mild transmission "bucking", esp. when going uphill. I too cleaned the MAF and the IAC, to no effect....

Oh, that car's worth more than $2000 -- more like $3100 - $3600. So yes, around $3500 is realistic. Nice ride for the money.

Nice touch with the black SS inlays. Subtle and effective, as the finest mods often are. :cool:
