everything but idle...
« Reply #15 on: July 20, 2008, 03:12:50 PM »

we might be dealing with a dead cyl. i pulled a wire off the cap and rotor and the engine actually didnt change so im thinking bad plug probabbly might be doing this...

wich would mean my car is eating sparkplugs...

im still working on the rest of the suggestions as well...

Check #7 and #8.
 
For the mechanically handicapped, those are the back cylinders.  7 is on the passenger side and 8 is on the driver side.
 
Edit
Thanks Herm
OMG  What have I done.  TYPO!  Ohh man
Odd bank is on the left, drivers side, Even Bank is on the right, Passenger side

IIRC,the Mobbstaffcar ate a plug before almost smashing a piston after it swallowed something down from the carb..

lea's got a good memory... it was a sliver of metal, off the original carb, when its mounting plate cracked from some over judicious bolt tightening...

that little affair knocked out three plugs...

i guess ill be getting dirty tommorow...

progressively since i bought it... almost 3 years ago...

recently though its had new wires, a cap,  a rotor, brakes, brake hoses, rear oil and additive changed, trans fluid change, filter change, new carb.... pretty much anything changeable...

plugs were done a little over a year ago, supposedly... since I paid a mech to do it... but after seeing that plug.... i dunno...

needs and oil change coming up.. and a fuel filter....

Unless I'm misunderstanding something here, 1,3,5,7 are on the driver's side.  Ergo, all even cylinders are on the passenger side.

Indeed, as already stated, the fellow in charge must have been a passenger in his own car to often I guess.

Even cylinders are on the female side, err 'passenger side' of the car, on-even cyilinders on the drivers-side, yes indeed...
