OK, it's all been vacuume'd out & the coils put back on. I started it up & damn, if it doesn't run better!
Here's what I think has been happening:
Back in Oct, when I initially had the problems, I took those plastic engine covers off. Well, those covers have been off since then! This car has been sitting out in the rain while I'm at work, and it's been through plenty of car washes too!! Hell, I'm surprised it ran w/ all the water it's been taking in!! lol.
So, yesterday, after test driving it, I got home & put those plastic covers back on. If anything, those will divert the water off of the engine..
