Updating this thread, today I had the same idle drop but it has not happened since I did the coil swap over a week ago and before I did the swap it was missing constantly so I assumed that fixed it. I'm wondering if either (A) the Pertronix system in my car, or something else, is possibly causing coil failures, or (B) if it could be a simple matter of injectors need cleaned?
Further symptoms, it bogs down when I give it more than about 3/4 throttle such as going up an incline or merging with traffic. It died twice while moving at neighborhood speeds.
I also noted the oil on injector pump was very high, read on another forum from a helpful member who suggested this makes the car sluggish. I am correcting the level to see if it makes any change. What do you guys use for the pump, same as engine oil?
