Any Ideas

Alright, I was happy earlier when i did that first post, but now I am unhappy. I put an intake on my gt last night and it was running great. All of a sudden I have a loss of power and it feels like a missfire. Anybody run into this.

Leaking gasket. Check the oil for milky color. Also check for loose connections and or vacuum leaks.

Sprayed with starting fluid all around motor but nothing. Everything is connected. Wires and plugs not but 3000 miles old. Everything is connected right. as far as I can tell.

Re: Any Ideas

Gave up on it last night. When I got in it today it runs perfectly. I dont understand what happened between then and now. I dont know if I like when my car fixes it's self.

It could have been something in the spark plug holes. Any liquid (I.e. Water, coolant....etc...etc) could have caused a mis- fire. Maybe sitting over night caused the liquid to evaporate or something. It has happened to me in the past. Just my .02.

Re: Any Ideas

it was prolly a misfire for sure! exspecially if your putting in new upgrades that will push your car.. if your redlined you can close some gaps on your plugs.. but it wouldnt go away you would need to replace.. so the moister theory is my best bet..
