Default open the hood and found...

sparkplug wire #1 going rogue and getting caught in the tip of the fanblades, and getting chewed up. it'* barely a complete circuit anymore, and i had to tape it up and ziptie it away from the fan. looks like it came out of the bracket somehow, must have been after i changed the valve cover gaskets, and of course nowhere around me stocks them, so its jury-rigged until i get out of work and anything is open, or i can get some on monday at autozone or pepboys becuase i'm away all weekend.... least its only the plug wire... could probably use a change anyways.
