Re: 2003 running bad-New cap rotor plugs wires...

Yeah this is how I accessed them through wheel well but mine is not lifted. I can barely get my hands in there to pull/push on wires. I got it done. Running good now.

Re: 2003 running bad-New cap rotor plugs wires...

I think I might have resolved the ticking/arching misfire issue... Turns out one or more of the spark plug wire boots might not have been fully seated (snapped on).

Re: 2003 running bad-New cap rotor plugs wires...

I'm just thinking out loud. Is the cap down all the way? How about wires pushed and "clicked" on properly. Is the distributor tight? Meaning did it rotate out of timing. If all that's good drop back ten and punt! The distributor hasn't moved and yeah the cap/rotor are snugged down. The on...

Re: 2003 running bad-New cap rotor plugs wires...

This is what the old parts looked like... And it ran smooth... I did the cap/rotor first because I knew the spark plugs would be a pain. Once I saw the old cap/rotor I headed straight back to the parts store for plugs..
