Well - the saga continues.
I replaced the bad coil and it tests good at 7.8 now - perfect.
It still runs real bad - I can still pull the plug wires off that coil and it does not change the running condition and the fuel pressure is very low. I tried the starting fluid test and have no leaks that I can find - so I figured I would change the fuel filter.
I get under the car and it is on the drivers side, by the rear tire...a bit strange but oh well. The corrosion from Michigan roads is quite bad but I can get vise grips on - after an hour and many WD-40 sprays it still will not budge so I eat a can of spinach and start really reefing on it (quite the BAD idea) - well the fuel line snaps due to the corrosion and my spinach-powered muscles.
I check here and found a great write-up on splicing the line with compression bolts and I go get the parts and try it - well the $15 pipe bender is a Pain in the rear - but I get it to work finally and hooke everything up and now it leaks at the filter so I have given up haha.
I did the "blow" test on the old filter and it is not clogged and actually passed air very easy so I do not think that is even the problem, I just made it worse
Thanks for the help but I have decided with fuel leaking and my limited tools and skills that I am better off with a real mechanic fixing it at this point - such fun.
