Well I borrowed a code reader today and tested my new 98 SE. First I got a 440 which is the EVAP system fault. I will check into that a little later.
I also got a 301 - cylinder 1 misfire.
The engine does hesitate to start a little, so I went in and took off the first spark plug wire to test it and found rust on the coil (I think that'* the right name for it... I just got home from college and my brain hurts
). All of the spark plug wires appear brand new, so I'm assuming they've already been replaced. I'm probably going to have to replace the coil though, correct? If so, could I head over to the salvage yard and find one that works, or am I better off buying a new one?
Also, as a side note for those who were asking... I noticed that the date on my UIM says it was manufactured in 2003. My car is a 98, so it must have failed and been replaced before I bought it. I'm still going to take off the TB anyways just to see what it looks like in there.
