LMAO....

I'm not sure what to think of this quad 4, but is seems as if its going to be a game of Mine sweeper...

I'd do what has been reccomended first... Check everything, fuel pressure, the Coil housing, and possibly take the actuall Ignition Control Module out and have it tested... All of these hide under the alluminum cover attached to the engine with 4 bolts... I don't think the timming is off if it ran fine before you change the pump... Changing the pump should't have altered anything in this motor.. So its all up in the air... Knock it out one by one and see where it leads you... Keep us informed..

TO THE TOP!

Fixed it. Did some simple diagnostics. Quatriple checked all connections etc. Got in the car, started it. REV LIMITER? What the hell? Check everything in the engine bay. Had airbox off, felt in the TB. Holy hell! Here'* a problem! The butterfly was hanging open about 15% throttle. WTF? Back track from the butterfly. Hmm... It want to go back but can't. Check cables. Foot feed cable good. Cruise control cable? Cruising I guess. Jeez! End of story is... The guide for the cruise cable had become dislodged from the cruise control box and was forcing the cable to pull tight and actually open the TB up. After dicking around with it a bit, got it stuff back in the plastic nipple thingee and hooked it up again. Fired up and purred like a kitten. I was sooooo happy I didn't have to tear it down!


Analysis: Sputtering and idle hunting due to the damned thing trying to pull fuel and anything else to get to it'* desired idle. I thought it was odd that it was able to rev 4k....

Also during the test drive, I kicked it in the side. That thing could have been outrun by a kid on a bicycle!

Was it a 4 speed auto? I'll bet it was the 4T40-E... Even in the 95 Grand ams the 0-60 time was slow.... My 91 Bonneville LE would give it a hell of a run and I have the Granny gears in it

A friend was driving a Caviler.... Right behind me... we got to a light, I put my foot on it them floored it... I was told that they tried with all their might to keep up but couldn't... They said the A$$ end went right down when I mashed it to the floor... They were supprised that a Big car could move and leve them in the distance

Some of the older Quads were interesting tho... 160-180 HP... Not too bad..

Glad you got it...

However..as this is the first I've found this thread. I thought to myself. Why'* he asking about bolts hitting a strut or firewall and not having enough room to take them out??? He owns Fords and should be used to that.

Learn something new every day.

Oh..and I happen to think the Quad 4 was a holdover design from a Dodge engineer.

That'* because my Ford never breaks down. I've only had it apart to do very small things to try and add a little giddyup. Intake manifold, torque converter, exhaust manifolds. That sums it up. Even with it'* daily flogging it keeps on ticking. 182K miles on it. Only expect it to live another 118k.
