I can't have been THAT far off. It ran and gave me 25+mpg!
I won't lie and say I drove like Granny does either. That thing saw plenty of 4500 RPM shifts.
Nah it wasn't far off. In fact it was working fine the way it was, it just wasn't in the factory position. It will run facing any direction as long as the order is the same 1324.
That being said I thought I solved the problem when I switched it around. But the engine would still shake at idle. Then on the way home from the tree run the engine decided it would die whenever it was at idle.
So I did a bit of looking around for vacum leaks and found an un-corked vacum opening for (Idk what really, some accessory my car doesn't have). It was on the intake manifold close to the passenger side head. Closed that up and the engine idles really smooth now.
But as soon as I closed that vacum port, the engine developed a miss that doesn't go away throughout any rpm speed.
When left to idle at 1000 rpm, the engine will miss every now and then and eventually idle down and die just like on my way home from the tree run.
If I turn the idle speed up to like 1100 or higher the engine wont die, but it will still miss.
Also when I removed the airfilter cover the engine choked out and died.
I am getting spark to all four cylinders.
So I'm gonna look at a few things that the troubleshooting guide has pointed me to:
any other vacum leaks there may be
If anybody has some ideas of what might be happening I'm listening.
