I had a problem like this on my pickup. When I replaced my plugs, I didn' replace the wires. The wires were old and when I started moving them around to change the plugs, I must have snapped or broken one of the plug wires inside the rubber coating. So although I couldn't see a break in any of the wires, the plugs weren't getting any juice.

As soon as I put new wires on, it was perfect. Just because the wires aren't showing visible cracks doesn't mean they're fine...how old are yours?


Too close for missiles, I'm switching to guns...
