Lately my engine has been running rough now and again. Feels like it has a slight miss sometimes. Today after changing the oil I fired it up and checked for leaks. Looked good, but I heard a clicking, and it wasn't that bad lifter (that's another story!
Look around and I saw one of my wires arcing at the boot onto what seemed to be the heater core hose. So I moved that out of the way and it was arcing less, but still arcing to the manifold. Well you can probably figure where this is going... Stupid me reached out to make sure it was on the plug nice and good. Well, my arm muscles decided to tighten real quickly like, sending my elbow bashing back into the hood. D'oh! Gee Cory, that was real smart! Can't do that anymore with the Pertronix II and the MSD coil!
Anyhow, I suppose these wires have about 20,000 miles on them. Does that seem reasonable for them to go kaput after that long? How long should wires typically last? Anyhow, I figgure I'll do the wires, cap and rotor tomorrow. I just changed the plugs a couple weeks ago so they're good for a while.
