Re: my car wont stop running rough

Check leads and plugs, check harmonic ballancer ?? The outer ring MAY shifted ?? Check TDC with wire in spark plugs hole to find piston at tdc then check mark on ballancer...Check and clean maf..To check maf.. Disconnect it and if it runs better?? Thats your problem...

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!

Re: my car wont stop running rough

Did you replace one plug and lead at a time?
if not, then you have probably got one or more out of order.

If you did them one at a time, go over them ALL to ensure that they are contacting properly.

If that fails, it is possible to have a crook lead or plug. Leads can be tested with an ohm meter. Plugs can be tested on ya lawn mower :)

Re: my car wont stop running rough

Ya know you may have one that hasn't seated properly! common.
Unlikely all leads in a set would be duff, but researching ANY car manual will explain how to test the leads.

It could be a duff plug even.

I wouldn't spend money on another set of leads without some testing first....but then again plenty of people other than me can afford to keep paying until it works
