Re: [DML] Rough running, poor accelleration, think its Lambda related


Arcing indicates that your wires need to be replaced. Of course you need to 
keep in mind that old spark plugs or incorrectly gapped plugs can cause the 
same problem. If the gap is way too large it will cause the voltage to raise 
to such a level that it breaks the insulation and arcs to the engine. If the 
plugs are fairly new and correctly gapped you will need to replace the spark 
plug wires. Replace ALL of them including the one from the coil to the 
distributor and the problem will go away. You will also notice that the 
engine is easier to start, runs smoother and reacts better to gas input.

Good luck
