Mr. Carr,

The thread in the DIY section, posted earlier, pretty much sums up how to get your car running correctly. First off, you must establish a baseline on maintenance items such as plugs, wires, cap, rotor etc. Check all the vacuum lines, air filter, ICV and so on.

If this task is beyond your skill sets or time frame, try this link from the main forum page

If you do take the car to a shop, let us know what they "suggest" before spending any money.

Good Luck,

I usually like to get a 2nd set of eyes on a car when it's new. I played around with the duty cycle, but got inconsistent results, so I'd like to have an expert look at it, find out what they did, then learn from that.
