i have a 1990 century w/3.3l automatic no overdrive, 169,000 miles. i am having a problem with keeping it idling. there are no problems when driving down the road. when we pull up to a stop sign slight pressure is needed on the gas to keep rpms up or it will stall. i have hooked up a scantool while it is running and of course don't know how to interpret all of the data. only codes present are 26 and 27. running in park scantool shows quad drivers 1, 2, 3 bad and 4 ok. while driving 1 and 2 switch to ok. 3 always says bad. what circuits are controlled by the quad drivers and what should i look at next? also did fuel pressure check and it is in range.

A quad driver is an integrated circuit within the ECM which controld voltage output to various devices
