The 87-93 alt should have about 14v... The 91 runs at 14 - 14.5 or so most of the time..

Dame see what the alt is putting out under load...

It'* not like you've got a rally light set on the front either, or a coule JBL 1200.1 amps....

Good thing the alt takes about 5 min. 10 if you get a 140 and have to dremel out your ring terminal on the main hookup..

AH HA! The value of an experienced mechanic close enough to see it. Best $40 I've spent on this car.

Things he noticed; #4 plug broken, EGR Valve Cracked.

New set of plugs and I'm looking for an EGR. Let'* just say I lost about 1K mi. of rubber today. That idle is damned good.

Moral: Check the basics. Twice. No, Three times.

How did you manage to break the #4 plug? Or was it cracked from the get go?

The mechanic said it was probably when I broke my front tranny mount. He said it looked like about a months' worth of carbon tracking.

Picked up an EGR valve and 12 L27 injectors for $20 + tax about 20min ago. This thing is smooth, I can't hear the engine at idle, I can't feel it. Kittens can't purr this good. I love this car, And I can't believe you guys stuck with me on the diagnosis when I overlooked such a simple thing...

Too bad it'* raining now :(

Hard to say what exactly is wrong when you can't drive it.... wish I could have driven it...

My 95 had nasty hissy fits when I had an unhappy wire... Not a dead miss, but it didn't help... I loved it when that Hybrid PCM showed me a Cylinder #4 miss.... It was intermintent too.... LMAO...

Glad you know what the problem is....

Yup. Works pretty good. Crack your EGR baseplate clean in half if you can.
