The weather was sort of ok around the homestead so I thought to take the car out and see about some miles until I had to put the car up for the winter. Of course with the cold air she was purring like a kitten. No horsing around, just a run out to the dentist and then over to buy a couple of tools, take Momma to dinner and home. What a day. Running about 40, car all warmed all up, all good, she started making a weird noise, running rough and erratic and started stalling. Being only a mile of so from home I threw a quick U got about 1/4 and car quit. Threw the clutch in and coated the rest of the way (it's a gentle downhill) Car in the garage, tried to start it and got it to start, saw the vacuum modulator on the maggie moving the intake flap like a machine gun, at the same time I hear a godawful noise and I quickly cut the car off. Anyway, a long story but I am sick to my stomach, mad as all hell, and flat just fell like burning this bitch to the ground. Whew, ok, better. Anyway, my son took the plugs out on passenger side, and the valve cover and it only confirmed what I knew. Mid week I will pull the head and see what more bad freaking news is in store for me.
