Plugs and wires (check) - replaced both
How did the plugs look when you replaced them, any fouled? - Plugs looked worn but no fouling
Are any coil posts corroded or rusty looking? - Coils seem to be OK, clean connections, proper resistance and spark seems strong
Are any plug wires touching the O2 sensor wiring? - Not touching, there is probably 1 inch in between one plug wire and the 02
What temp is the PCM coolant temp sensor reading? (the dash is a different sensor and can not be relied upon) - Not sure how to check this??
What grade of fuel are you using? - 93 octane
Does the catalytic converter rattle? - Don't believe so, would't I be able to hear it?
Are there any other odd things happening that you believe to be unrelated that you didn't mention? - Well the dash cluster goes in and out, and I have the typical problem with the engine getting starved for fuel when under 1/4 tank of gas which I believe is because a fuel tank defect?
How much fuel pressure does the vehicle have? - Don't have the tester yet
Is the fuel pump excessively loud (aka can you hear it)? - I can hear it switch on for 2 seconds when turning the ignition but I wouldn't call it excessively loud
Did you check all vacuum hoses including the ones under the airbox at the charcoal canister? - No going to do this
Do your exhaust manifolds have cracks in them? - Not that I can tell, will take a look
