Did you still need help?

Are there any codes in the computer?

It is still not fixed. The codes in the computer I would need to ask the tech who worked on it but I can tell you he spent considerable time changing and cleaning to no avail, he smoked it and found and repaired 2 vacuum leaks. When it is idling poorly It you put your hand over the intake and cut off all air it smoothes out and runs perfectly but a whining noise can be heard coming from what seems from underneath the engine. if necessary I will approach the tech and ask for the extent of his efforts.
