Dies when foot off gas


I would get another opinion on the alternator. There are tests that I am sure that autozone did not and cannot run. One is a load test, This would indicate if the battery is getting any electricity from the alternator under loadm diodes in the alternator could be failing. There is no way to adjust the RPM. IT should be around 800 on an automatic tranny in drive.

You may have cooked the engine.
It sounds like the head gasket may have blown, and you could be leaking coolant into the cylinders.

Check your timing to see if it jumped a bit.
If the timing belt broke, your outer belts would still turn off the crankshaft, but the engine sound, cranking, would be faster than normal, maybe a higher pitched whine. Anything going on like that?
I would think the one blistered plug was caused because it was loose and got too hot. But don't rule out a problem in that cylinder just yet. You may want next to do a compression test just to verify good compression. If it's okay, check fuel pressure. Good luck.

Head lights dimming and losing power while driving


Next time this happens, pull over and unscrew the gas cap. The vent may be clogged.

Otherwise, your catalytic converter may be failing. It can also clog and hinder engine exhaust.

Good luck !
