my car started running rough on the way to work this morning. it had very little power and sounded like it was running on only 2 cyl. i pulled the plugs and they were white in color. put new ones in and it runs good again. looks like it was running lean. what would cause this. the plugs i pulled out were not that old.

what brand of plugs did you use??

sometimes they just go bad

could be deposit buildup, possibly from fuel additive

NGK plugs. as far as the fuel goes i did notice the local station has a sticker on the pump that says contains ethenol but i've been running that fuel in my other 90 legacy with no problems.

what about them? it runs fine otherwise.
i was wondering if one of the sensors acting up could cause this.
