I'm not sure, but I think the numbers looked good while reading the live data of the fuel trim (I have some readings written down I'll send them later to get your opinion).
I pulled one plug only, and it smelled like fuel.
Tested the resistance on the coils, on two of them the secondary resistance was just a little over 6, but the third was showing a resistance over 9 ( I read they should be between 5 and 8, and also they should have similar resistance ), so could that be a problem? Also when checking primary resistance, it would show about.5 when the leads were first touched, but would drop to zero almost instantly which I would think would tell me the coils are faulty, but the car runs strong under load, just a little rough at idle (kind of sputters, all the way through the tailpipe). If the coils were faulty the car wouldn't really run at all, right?
Also, fuel pressure is at 40 PSI - no smell of fuel while the car is running (or off), and exhaust smells okay, doesn't seem overly rich. But it's only getting half the MPG it should.
Thanks in advance for any help you can give.
