Okay, so here is where I am at. Replaced plugs and wires, cap and rotor. Also did the thermostat and gasket since she had no heat. Also did the oil change.
This did make a noteable difference, couple of things I have found while I was poking around under the hood. I don't have pictures yet, but I am working on it, I don't have internet at home, and am learning the intricate workings of a digital camera and then loading the pictures, for now....a description.
I found a vacuum line on the passenger side of the vehicle towards the mid engine that had been disconnected, it runs to a number of other vacuum lines via t's about 4 inches to the left of the intake manifold, lines t off and go several directions from this. Easiest one to describe from memory is it heads straight to the firewall and plugs into a canister that is whitish colored and resembles a large coffee cup. If I reconnect this vacuum line the car starts and idles fine, but once it gets warm, it bogs down and dies and I have to floor it to start again, it will rev up fine, but dies upon letting off the gas. However with it disconnected it idles just fine when its warm. There is a distinct hiss from the port when its disconnected. When its warmed up, I can put my finger over the port that is hissing, and it will stumble and start to die, take my finger off, revs right back up.
Opposite side of the engine, again another vacuum line that had been previously disconnected and plugged, I removed the plug and reconnected the line, haven't noticed a difference in idle warm or cold, but with it connected, the check engine light went off.
I did do a compression test on all 4 cylinders, compression was between 150 and 155, not sure how long you do a leak down test for, but I left it connected for about 2 minutes on each cylinder and lost nothing on any of them.
That's all for now until I get some pics for you guys.
One tip I learned on changing these plugs, I swear it seems like there was way more chit in the way on this a/t turbo than my manual non turbo. Out of the 3 tool boxes in the shop, not a single guy had a plug socket that still had the rubber in it. This car was built by Japanese, and though I'm not Japanese I do resemble a sumo wrestler, not a small guy. Not lots a room to get the drivers side plugs lined up, I found that stuffing the plug into a chunk of hose, gave me a MUCH better chance of getting the plug started. Never would have thought of it had I not used the compression tester. Anyways, I'm sure I'm not the only big guy who's ran into problems with getting you arm where it needs to be.
