the motor is in my 83 now but it had started to do it when it was still in the 95. kinda hard to start when cold/humid, noticable misfiring under ~2500rpm, not as peppy (relatively speaking of course), mileage is iffy sometimes (varies between low to high 30's on the highway). i did have a prob with the TPS connector coming loose (fixed but no codes reset), and i had suspected the coil going but not sure.
any thoughts???

Re: ABA misfiring (salomonrider55)

yesterday temp was only about 5 celsius max, and it was quite humid, ran like absolute garbage, only a 20min trip so wasn't necessarily up to op-temp, so that could have been it, but at start up, holy cow was it rich
