91 EGT missing
Ok, my 91 EGT has been missing considerably lately. I found a pretty bad coolant leak in a small hose under the air intake and fixed that. I thought that it was the cause of the missing because it reminds me of how an old car of mine ran when the wires were damp. The engine compartment is dry as a bone now, so I don't think that's the problem unless it's a short or some damage done from the previous moisture. Until today it never is a problem when I initially start the car. It'll run fine for couple of minutes, but not long, and only once today did it do it right away. It'll hesitate like it's missing during idling and acceleration. I can either power through it and get the RPMsup until it stops, or I've found that if I back off of the gas it'll stop missing and then i can accelerate smoothly back up to speed. When I'm at highway speeds I can feel a miss here and there, but nothing horrible. My initial thought was that it was some sort of tune up related issue (i.e. new plugs, wires, cap, rotor, air/gas filter), and I haven't done that needed tune up yet, but now I'm wondering if there's a bad ground, an exposed wire, or some damaged electrical component. I'm hoping it's not the alternator going bad because I put one in last year and that was a HUGE annoying pain in the arse of a job. I don't have a code reader so I don't know if there are any faults, and have no idea where I could get the checked and trust the codes/not have to pay a ton to find out the fault codes. Any of you experience anything like this?
