Either he overcharged the system or the cooling fan is not coming on causing too much high side pressure. Hows that. Be gentle when you tell him, guys have big egos and sometimes its hard when our spouses give us advice. Let us know how you make out or if you need further assistance.

Thank you for the advise. Yes something about men and their egos? Well as of today now it seems to be running rough at all times even when the a/c is off or on. But worse with the a/c on. My father in-law checked the pressure and said it was good. We are gonna try the spark plug wires, I guess they are corroded.

Plugs and wires. Also make sure the coil towers are clean and use dielectric grease on them when installing new ones.
