You replaced your 96's engine with a 99+ 3400 and you dont know what a PCM is or a BCM?

PCM and BCM are the computers that control everything.

Obviously your dad doesn't know what he's doing if you're having problems. You may want to visit 60degree.org or whatever that site is. You will get a lot more help from them than you will from here. They've done swaps like this.

Let's just say you're going to have a fun time figuring out what the problem is and how to correct it.
