well as a lot of you know i did a lot of work to my car back in early april.......well since then my car hasnt been acting right, no power down low and no get up when i reach higher speeds. had no idea what it was, thought it was something i messed up with my boost a pump or some other type of fuel issue...well i was right......i sea foamed my car and changed my oil yesterday and as i was putting my vacuum line back in i realized that ONE OF MY PLUGS TO MY NUMBER 8 CYLINDER WASNT PLUGGED IN!!!! well guess what happened when i plugged it in....it runs like a got damn beast.


im an idiot.

so the lesson for today is.,.....if ur **** isnt running right. make sure everything is plugged in!!!

You didn't have a CEL or realize that there was a terrible miss?

I had my #8 injector completely go out on me once and the car runs so bad as all RPMs that I wouldn't even drive it. At least you got it fixed and it wasn't anything big.

I had a similar issue, my #8 injector went out and the thing was misfiring terribly. Car was shuddering, had no power, etc.

This happened to me years ago with my 97 T-bird. Took car in to the dealer for the recalled intake manifold problem and when I got it back the monkey mechanic forgot to plug in one of the plug wires.

Of course, I only tolerated the problem for about a half hour before I was on the horn to the dealer ...

Would have thought you would have got a misfire code but at least you got the issue fixed.

Better late then never.

At least it was an easy fix! I was throwing a bunch of CEL and it wasn't starting or idling well, then i realized that my throttle position sensor wasn't plugged in. Oopies!
