Default plugs ok

replaced the plugs, wires, pvc valve. cleaned up the ground bus, though there was little corrosion. all the plugs looked good except one had white corrosion on the wire end.

hopefully my "transmission" problem is resolved.

stalled out on the highway this morning. sheesh.

good news is i kept kicking the panel until I made it to a gas station. then I figured out that the metal plate in the ground bus comes out and scraped it on some cement to make a good connection. Should be all set now finally.

Thanks for all of your help.

Classic...thanks I'm still laughing.

I'd suggest going a little further and adding dielectric grease to keep it from corroding in the future.

If you don't want to buy a large container of dielectric grease, you can pick up little packets at the counter of your local parts store for cheap.

Correct.... But it never hurts to have a tube around either...

I picked up a tube that is about an inch or less wide and about 3-4 inches long. Since March 22, 05 I've used 2/3 of that tube.

I can hear the conversations at work: "You should have seen this guy at the gas station kicking his car. He must really have a temper problem."

It ran so nicely this morning. this afternoon when i let it warm up, it was idling at 3000 rpm. i shut it down and restarted. then i drove home with what seemed to be 4 or 5 cylinders.

put put put put. autozone says p0300. I know I have the ground problem licked. Could I have screwed up my fuel pump in the process? please tell me i have bad gas. thanks.

time to change the coils?

btw, i put in the bosch 4x plugs. I've seen people here recommend against them.

I'm not sure which wires i bought. maybe i should try a new set.
