Oh my god....if that's what's wrong with my truck I'm going to FREAK! Laughing





I need to give it a tune up....the plugs are pretty rusty.....wouldn't be surprised if they are original, from the rust on them.


At least, since it's 4x4, I don't need to pull the front tires to get to 2 of them (I think) Laughing

no.. there are 2 other upsides.. plenty of room under the hood to work and if it blows a head gasket, you know which 1 it is! lmao

4 cylinders can be fun though.. in small, rear wheel drive cars or 2wd LOWERED trucks

im pretty sure that its the coil wire going to the distributor but im not 100%, but since its original along with the spark plugs, they are all cracked and dry rotted so i guess ill hvae to do the tune up sooner than i wanted to

Eric, if they are the original plugs, be very careful taking them out. There is a very good chance the threads have galled to the cylinder head. I would spray PB Blaster all around where the plug meets the head at least an hour before you start the tune up.

also, if they're tight coming out.. you may want to buy a tap and run it through the threads to get any junk out of the threads.. then just use a magnet to any metal fragments out of the cylinder.. sure, they're more than likely just blow out the exhaust port, but i wouldn't take that chance
