ok i wasnt sure if i should post this in the thread i made the other day or not so i just made a new one, so heres the story...the original problem that i was having was that the car seemed to be quite sluggish off a start, the first thing i did was replaced the fuel filter, this seemed to work temporarily (or so i thought, could be wrong because it might have only acted up after the car warmed up) so i did a little driving but it eventually started coming back, at this point i decided to leave it alone as i thought maybe it would take a little time, the next day i filled up with gas(85 as this is what my parents who gave me the car always put in it, i know this needs to change and i was planning to start 91 this next time i fill up) after driving the car for awhile after filling it, it started sputtering at about 3/4 of throttle. sense the sputtering started i have found that it only does it after the car warms up, with that said, i have checked the spark plugs(these were already replaced a few months ago) checked the wires(replaced the same time as the plugs) i have also tested the STOCK coils, on those i came up with 5.20'* area i think, and they were consistent with each other, but then i also read a thread about the sparks coming off red was bad? i was getting red sparks so i replaced the coils, the car ran fine for about less than 5 minutes and after it warmed up it started again, so i tested the new coils and came up with 5.07 on the 1&4 coil, the 5&2 and 3&6 coils read a very close 5.20 area(is that enough difference to consider that theres a problem with them?) also there is no ses light at all, and again the car runs fine until it warms up.
i am trying to get it into the shop to get it diagnosed but there booked at the time so im just trying to get more advice on what it may be and some other things i can test
any advice or suggestions would be much appreciated, thanks
