[DMCForum] Crappy running still...



I have no idea why my car ran so well after putting the new ignition
coil in yesterday, but that was not the cause of my problem. The car
still starts far easier than it did before but now, again, it runs
terribly.

Symptoms are exactly the same: After 1/2 pedal, the tach jumps all
over the dial, the car bucks and farts and nearly tosses me out of
the seat. I lose acceleration until I back off of the pedal.

All I know for sure is this: -SOMETIMES- the car runs better when the
engine is cool. It has psych'ed me out 4 times in the last few weeks,
thinking that I'd found the problem. As soon as I get hung up in any
kind of traffic where I get enough heat to run the cooling fans, the
engine goes to hell until it sits overnight or gets very cool again.

Dave T. still knows his stuff, but the ignition didn't seem to be the
problem. I have a nice white spark now.

This one's just going to have to wait until Saturday at the Social.

I guess checksix is right. I don't know what the hell I'm doing, or
what I'm talking about.
