Damn Dane

Did you get any oil on your CAI filter if you have one? That would do it to.

Pull the COPs, it is very likely that one or more plug wells has oil in it. Do this before you drive too much as a fouled boot will cause the COP to overheat and burn out...

At idle the PCM fires each plug 3 times in rapid succession, a "triple-strike" to improve ensure full combustion for a smoother idle and reduced emissions.



This will often allow the engine to fire properly at idle when a plug is worn, or the boot/conductor are compromised...

Thats cool i didnt know that, im used to a good ol 5.0 push rod engine. I disconnected the plug wires after i got home from work and they were steaming, is that bad or just cause the engine was hot?

If you have a 96-98 like in your pic then you don't have COPs unless someone converted at some point.

Uh.. that oil could have gotten on anything... And yes steaming plug wires are very very bad. Even without the COPs oil around the spark plugs and up in the boots can eff things up. I would disconnect EVERYTHING you can see/think of and clean it as best you can and hope for the best.

^ yes, I did not realize the OP had a '98, I wish people would when presenting issues state clearly what MY their car is, if it is not obvious from their signature or whatever...

We have a Dane mix and an Irish Wolfhound so I feel your pain. Although if someone let the dogs out front off leash I'd about lose my ****. We are in a suburb though, hopefully not for too much longer...

She is a Dane/Mastiff mix that we rescued. She is actually pedigreed as a Mastiff but she is obviously mostly Dane. She is around 120-130lbs and 32" tall at the shoulder but she needs to stay as light as possible because she is all effed up from crap mill breeding wherever she originally came from. The Wolfhound is still a baby at 5 and a half months and eating 6 cups of food a day and over 100lbs haha. Dad is 170lbs, Uncle is 190lbs so we'll see how far he goes lol. Go big or go home.

Here we go, got the Dane mix, the giant muppet (Irish Wolfhound) who is 100lbs and all of 5 and a half months old and the new addition. New pup is an Ibizan hound and he is 8 weeks old. We are going to show the Wolfhound and the Ibizan, both have very good pedigrees especially the Ibizan.
