    c14se misfirin

    ever since i had an engine rebuild bk in jan, the car has now decided it wont run right

    i thought plugs at first so i changed them and all was fine
    4 weeks later it happened again
    now when i try to put my foot down it sounds like its runnin on 1 cylinder and theres absolutely no power, it even dies completely at times

    ideas??

    could be the timing out maybe? when the engine was rebuilt maybe the timing wasn't 100% correct - i doubt that very much though.

    Also check the condition of the HT leads if they're starting to crack or have cracks in them that might be on problem too.

    When you put your foot down does it make a clunk kind of sound and the car jolts forwards then doesn't accelerate?

    ht leads r brand new only done 3000 miles max on them

    plugs r lookin really red at the bottom

    it does get a better for a bit with new plugs but then goes again

    a friend suggested overfueling may be the problem??
