got another question. the other day after pulln out of work somewhat on the gas and i let off before the stoplight and it idled down really rough and shaky and at the light it gradually got a bit better. It seems to still drive good when im on the gas(no power loss, just a little glitch you can feel at low rpm), it just has a weird idle now. it kinda has a rough spot in a pattern and there is a slight pop backfire in the exhaust i can here. i noticed a slight bump in the idle a week or so ago, and it was just every 5 sec or so.

could it be spark? im wondering if the #2 cylinder that the injector connector was bad on, its plug is slightly fouled from the misfiring etc.

No probably not. It can, but not likely. Sounds like a coil or other spark problem.

thats kinda what im thinking. its only bad at lower rpm's. thats when its most felt. but if i get on it like taking off it doesnt seem to hinder anything. little stutter here and there but not as bad. guess im gona have to look over everything

These things are junkyard specials. **** some have paint on them, rust, and look at the two that have no insulator left.. im gona go speak my mind to the shop

Needless to say, i replaced them all with Bosh PLatinums and she runs like a champ.
