Changed the plugs and wires of a 1988 sunbird car now goes from a slow idle to a fast idle . when the fast idle kicks on the check engine light now comes on.Car seem to run fine


Was there a problem before you changed the wires and plugs? Did you buy off the shelf wires or wires sized for you make/model? In order to replace the wires did you disconnect any rubber vacuum lines and forget to replace them?

You might also want to check your fuel filter and your fuel pump for proper operation before going on so that you dont spend more for uneccessary repairs.

It bogs down after about 15-20 miles. Today I could only go about 15 miles per hour for about 5 minutes. We did a complete tune-up. Changed spark plugs, wires, air filter. Also replaced the thermostat,...


its possible that the fuel pump isn't working properly possibly due to worn pump or corroded wiring going to the pump not allowing full voltage or grnd to the pump

My 92 pontiac sunbird engine sound like it is missing. I changed the spark plugs and wires. It sounds better but still misses. What should I do.


I had the same problem with my 92 sunbird. after a long time of fooling around, we finally figured out it was the ignition module, it the part that is responsible for firing the spark plugs, mine was only running 2 of the four cylinders.

Engine is revving when brake is down or car is in park


Your "kickdown" is not working like it should, Check all the mechanical linkage for anything stuck. Clean and lube all of it.
