New flasher relay fixed the problem. Since I recently replaced it, I was skeptical it could already be bad, but upon removing it, it was obvious that it was the problem. The new one(that I just...

OK well, New wire set fixed it, didn't change the plug so i have a spare now. On a side note...cylinder 4 can kiss my ass! This is one of the worst cars to put plugs and wires on of all time.

It's pretty old...possibly the original. If I've replaced it, I don't remember doing so. If the wires and plug doesn't help and the ICM checks out, I will just replace this when I replace the...

The problem though is that it's very consistent and does it mainly under load, but not at cruising load and RPM. If it was a sensor, or connection issue, it seems like it would be more random. After...

If it interferes with the steering, I say you do some fabrication, and rear mount it. Bet you could pop a wheelie then. Plus think of all the trunk space you could have under the hood vs that tiny...

Mine reads 70 at cruising and 50-60 at idle. Maybe 45ish when the engine is hot. Don't have a mechanical gauge on it to know if it's accurate, but that's what the old one read before I accidentally...

It is a 90 V6, which is great for a V8 because of the timing of the pistons. However in a V6 you have to compensate by offsetting. Then you have to worry about harmonics and adding in a balance...

If I were you, I'd spend a couple extra hundred on a new 3.4. You are going to spend that much and more in making the 3.8 work. Besides, the exhaust on a 3.4 sounds better.

I personally like doing coils first. It takes like 5 minutes and if misfire doesn't move then I check Plugs, wires, ICM, and then Injector.
