Well as some of you have seen in this topic http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...ic.php?t=39925
the car went from Hero to zero in 887 kms. I replaced the engine and I also upgraded the ignition to the new Delco style with 97+SC coils on it. New plugs ( AC Delco) same wires ( MSD). It seems that when it is cold, it starts quicker than after you have driven it a bit. Meaning, it takes less cranks to start it when it has sat for a while and when it has been driven, it cranks over alot more before it actually catches and runs.
Also at idle, there is a noticeable miss, and sometimes while driving, when you are stopped at a light you can feel the miss more.
I was thinking that it was the fuel pressure regulator, but my buddy ( mechanic) was telling me that it would bog down while driving also if the regulator was going screwy. But this new engine HAS BALLS, even Renee says so. Plus we both think this car has a louder tone from the exhaust than the old one. It is great. I just put a bottle of fuel system treatment in it to see if it will help any. I was figuring that the injectors may be getting clogged from sitting. I mean it came from a 1988 Toronado, that was a sumer car and it only had 51,000 kms ( around 35,000 miles) on it.
Any thoughts on this??
