I'll remember, maybe I'll go :) My schedule (or lack thereof) makes it difficult to plan stuff really far in advance, I never know when I'll be working and I could end up anywhere in the country. I'm a boilermaker/ tube welder so when there's work I have to jump on it. While it stinks not having a s...

Moral support is good too, I'll need lots of that lol Is the garage meet a joke or would that really work? Even if we didn't work on my car it would be cool to network and have a reason for a big bbq :) Plus it would be cool to see my end of the street full of neons :)

I like this thread, lol I read almost all of it :) I live in Cincinnati though I've only lived here long enough to start spelling it correctly. I'm from a small town in Upstate New York called Mexico. I have a retired greyhound who is seriously the easiest dog you could own. I love to ride my 5th ge...

Ok, sorry- I put the link to the first thread I started b/c I didn't know if it would be ok to put all the info in two places. It started with a flashing CEL and a P0301 code. Misfire, #1 cylinder. I replaced the spark plugs and it went away for a couple days then came back. I was scared to do a com...

There may be hope!

For anyone interested-http://forum.2gn.org/viewtopic.php?t=67217 I have been up all night worrying and researching. I'm going to do a wet compression test to see if it's the valves or the rings. If it ends up being the valves is there any reason I can't use this head (http://www.oreillyauto.com/site...

Well.... The dreaded compression check is over..... No compression on the #1 cylinder :/ I've priced out the parts to completely rebuild the head as well as timing belt, gaskets, water pump, tensioner, cam ect. and it was $1500 plus I'd still have to pay the machine shop. Then the bottom end would n...

Ok, that's a lot of info lol Maybe this will help- today, I changed the valve cover gasket and repaired the spark plug tubes. Problem is, the one that is having the misfire issue is the only one (tube) that wasn't leaking. When I pulled the plug it was black with carbon. Is this a sign of a stuck or...

MP sells accel injectors, I'm just trying to figure out which are the stock flow rate searching isn't getting me very far :/ Wish there was a chart or they said "if your looking to replace stock with stock flow rates you need these" lol

ok, thanks for the heads up! :) What accels are equivalent to stock?
I don't mind the $ because you can get a whole set cheaper than you can get one for my truck lol

Ok... so the dang flashing light is back :/ So when it warms up this weekend I'll be changing the valve cover gasket, as well as the granatelli wires and coil I ordered from MP. Thinking I might as well get the dreaded compression check out of the way too. My question is if the compression turns out...

Thanks for the info, I unhooked the battery turned the headlights on let it sit for an hour or so. Next I pulled the plugs. Not so good Al- definitely the factory plugs (car has 108,000) found out the tubes on #2 and #3 are leaking. NBD cheap and relatively easy. Put new plugs in took it down and fi...

Thanks, I forgot to mention it started this after adding seafoam to the tank (it sat for a year with a 1/4 tank in it). Probably just coincidence but I'll start with the plugs then check resistance in the wires and replace as needed. Also, aren't the coil pack harnesses prone to failure from rubbing...

P0301 and flashing cel

On my way to work the other day the cel started flashing. I didn't know any better so I just kept going. Finished work drove home flashing the whole way. My commute is abt 70 miles each way. When I got home I searched and found the flashing cel to be super bad. Checked codes and P0301 popped up. Thi...

That's the plan :) It needs motor mounts pretty bad, leaning towards solid mounts because I'm not too worried about vibration. If I get sick of it I always have the Superduty or the bike :)
