gerryv32 is on a distinguished road

Sorry i didnt get to help sooner but Danthurs is correct plugs can and will go bad and if you went that for to change the lim the plugs should be changed to. I just did the uim, and lim on my 96 se last week end and did plugs and wires while i was there.I have been working on cars since i was 12 and went to school to be a tech and even the best of us sometimes over look the simple things. mine wouldnt start after i did all that work and in my big hurry to get done because i have arthritis in my neck and was in pain i put 1 plug wire on the wrong coil and that was enough for it not to start. lol but thank goodness you got it to run and saved yourself the big money. you gotta love this site lol.

I thunked it. Reread the below and you'll note the been there had that happen, experience sound of it. It'* common and sometimes it takes a bit of work to dry them up.

It'* pretty common when the cylinders are soaked like yours appear to be.
