intermittent miss on accel

Well my cars' been sitting ~ 2 months while I did the timing chain

all's back together and it seems to be running okay at idle/revving it up with no load - no leaks/drips/odd noises - timing's set at 12* advance running premium gas..

when driving it.. punching the gas a bit.. its stumbling intermittently, not frequently enough to be a dead miss, but definitely there, it's accelerating, then its not, then accelerating again.. a dead time of sorts

anyone have any ideas what it could be?
I don't have access to my PCED like I usually would

I found I could wobble my distributor cap a little bit side to side.. so I'm gonna replace that, then see where I can go from there.. in the meantime, anyone have any ideas?

check your plugs and wires then, always try to fix the simple first!

Re: intermittent miss on accel

whooo back from the dead..

sorry...

erm..

my problem ended up being a faulty coil --
if you're backfiring that badly you either have a leaky injector or your distributor is entirely out of time.. (maybe whomever set it was wrong?) or perhaps your rotor is damaged/broken?

where exactly in NJ are you? (I'm right near vineland..) perhaps I could try to help you out?

do you have AIM?
