What codes were showing up. Maybe its the ICP or the wires to it. On my 97 the PO had a cluster f**k of wires for the ICP and if you jiggled them it would start loping and die then you could fire it right back up and a code would be stored.

ICP is really easy to change on a obs. Your should still be fairly easy. From what I have read, most of the time when the icp goes bad, oil will leak through the sensor and into the connector. So pull the plug out and look at the wires and down in the connector. If there is oil then you need a new icp. If there is no oil and all of the pins and the wires look good, start it with the connector unplugged, this sets it to a default icp setting. If it runs better then get a new icp.

Here is a pic of where the icp is located
