Engine Performance problem
1986 Pontiac Sunbird 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 10000 miles
I have a 1986 Pontiac Sunbird that has a 1994 Jasper engine installed by the previous owner. The engine has about 12000 miles on it.
It was missing while at idle and riding down the road at a constant speed. (No backfire)
The previous owner had changed all the plugs, wires, and distributor cap.
I changed the spark plugs and noticed the gap was set to far and I set them to the factory.045 setting.
The car seemed to run ok with a very slight miss. I changed the button which seemed to make things worse.
Now the car hesitates and stalls when taking off.
I changed back to the original button and its still doing the same thing.
I did not cross any wires (I labeled them all)
The car also seems to be running rich as well.
Edit: I noticed the injector doesnt seem to be spraying fuel evenly as it should. I am having trouble removing it, can you post some instructions, thanks.
have the same problem?
