... and if I can count, the tenth digit is a V, making it a '97.
Oh, wait... you need month. Hold on.
Is there any reason you need it specifically from the VIN? It should be on the door jam sticker, if I remember correctly.

But it didn't necessarily get bought as soon as it hit the lot. VIN reports don't give the month of manufacture, at least, not the way I get them...
Also, wow. That car went from the east coast of Maine, to BC. And not registered anywhere in between.

got the plugs and wires replaced...now it only starts with help(read throttle body cleaner)...where to check fuel pressure????
Carefully check the intake snorkel hose gadgetry for any hoses that might have popped off. The ones where the IACV intake attaches to the intake tubing, often that hose will pop off and cause the exact issue you describe as much airflow is then allowed to bypass the MAF which confuses the ECU.
