Kinda.

After I did the lines, the car was running perfect (with the exception of a slightly higher idle, i didn't htink anything of it because i thought it was the adaptive values). but last night It randomly just starts to misfire, then i park the car for 30 minutes, come back and the car is running fine. Also just today I see the idle start to bounce again. But again, it is there and goes away

I thought i fixed the bounce by fixing hte vacuum lines, but I guess I didn't. I also thought fixing the vacuum lines would help the ccv actually work and stop oil from covering my spark plugs. So my guess is that i have the idle bounce because of a [slightly] misfiring cylinder, then it gets bad and really misfires. Even though the vacuum lines did help. i need to grab a code reader and see what cylinder is misfiring then swap coils. see if i can trouble shoot it.

but that is it as of right now. i have the day off tomorrow so i might do that if i can get a hold of a code reader.
