runs fine until It warms up

I've been having this problem with my lt1.. 1992, it runs fine until it gets to operating temp. Then it starts to miss and kinda buck. Had check engine codes. They were for the intake air temp sensor.I replaced that and the throttle position sensor and it still happens. It's not over heating and everything else looks normal. 93,000 miles on it. Just replaced both o2 sensors and it still happens. I'm done now and I'm bringing it to a shop on Fri. I'll let you guys know what it was when I find out. The opti spark distributer was shot.... After paying $850.00, it runs great!!!

Not adjustable on his car; ECM takes "key on" TPS reading and uses that as base figure

What temp?
Sounds like you have a problem when computer goes into closed loop and uses the O2 sensor

It could be a faulty O2 sensor.

Same thing for you; closed loop problem. Check engine light on?

Your O2 sensor may have failed already. Or the wire on it came unplugged. I'd check it out myself before taking it to a shop.
