OK, the trip home was fun, but there were times when the lack of power and hesitation were hard to miss. I knew that a tune-up was in store, but I wasn’t prepared for what I found.
I pulled the plugs first. They were Bosch Platinum, but completely worn out. The only good news was that the color was decent. No soot or oil. Next I pulled the distributor cap and rotor. Again, complete junk. I’m amazed it ran. I tried to clean up the cap and rotor as best as I could, but it just didn’t want to start.
I’ve already ordered parts for a complete tune-up, so I decided to save the battery and just wait until they arrive.
