[DML] Re: Finding engine problem

1) When was the last time the engine had a tune-up? Replace the spark
plugs, ignition wires, filters, distributer cap and rotor, and clean
the fuel injectors. You may also have dirty/corroded electrical
connections on the ballast resistor on the firewall. Depending on your
mileage you may also have to adjust the valves and replace the O2
sensor. I would also do a compression test to see that all of the
cylinders are close. You will probably have to adjust the mixture and
make sure the idle system is set up and operating properly.

2)  Look under the carpet on the driver's side and see if it is wet
with brake fluid. You probably need a brake master cylinder.

3) Refer to #1 and fix all of the vacuum leaks.
