Re: Help! please! 3.0 dohc

Thank you so much. The mechanic that did the last major service did a terrible job, I found 2 stock plug wires 4 aftermarket, 2 different brands of spark plugs none gapped correctly, and cylinders 1 and 3 were reversed on the ign. coil. It has been running bad for a long while and none of the mechanics we took it to could find out why. They where just to freakin' lazy to pull the intake manifold off to get a good look. Its running great now, new plugs wires and coil.

Thanks again, Jeremy
