The biggest problem you have is the purge valve control module. That malfunction will just kill your performance. You have one on order and I think that will fix a lot of your troubles. You can go and get the sea foam throttle body cleaner and follow the instructions for use. It is a lot easier than using the liquid and trying to pour it down any opening. You may have a bad throttle position sensor, but I think when you replace the purge valve control you will se the car run much better. Good luck on your trip back home.

How long are you going to be in MN? I can run to the local JY and grab you a throttle position sensor and mail it to you if you'd like.

Sent you a PM with contact info for my old mechanic that could be worth a phone call/visit. He sold me my first Scoobie back in '94 and has a shop in a suburb SW of Minneapolis.

hard starting in cool/cold weather sounds (to me) more like the coolant temp sensor is shot. There are two - the one to check and/or replace is the 2 wire unit for the ECU.
Where in Minnesota are you?
