Well, after all... what would Banacek say ?... “Everything needs to change except the asshole culture and stupid way of life of the avg. antifa, BLM follower - slobs, cowards, killers w/o any thought that they, IN FACT, are now the Racists.”

Two weeks ago I had a sudden misfire after starting up not to far from home. Engine light was flashing and read out to a P0300. I started up the car gauge pro and saw that it was cylinder 6 constantly misfiring. I was pretty upset because I rebuilt the passenger side head two years ago and could only imagine what was wrong. So I removed the doghouse and opened up the 2yo cap rotor and cleaned some corrosion off the contacts. Van was still misfiring. So I removed the spark plug and instantly smelled raw gas. So I swapped out the spark plug wire with cylinder 4 expecting to see the misfire switch cylinders. After starting it up the van was running fine with no misfires. I thought wtf maybe a bad contact or something. So I drove around for a few days like that and ordered a new brass cap and rotor and set of AcDelco wires. Just finished installing them and the van feels great.
