That would be great! Its on my calendar. That's a good place to hold a event like that. Plenty of room for lots of cars, and a drag strip and race track. Thanks for the info.

You guys should try and do at least 2 or 3 stops, The drive is a big part of the fun. Driving along and everywhere you look is some kind of classic, sports or muscle car.

I have a longage of passengers and a shortage of seats. Usually, I cannot go far or with my Fiero. I've been shamelessly showing up with kids and no Fiero to short events and meals. We're good for a few hours--not days.

So wait. If it's just one cylinder, pull one plug wire, test, replug & repeat for each cylinder until you find the bad one.

Just a thought, but what group does the Fiero fall into? I always thought it was commuter, mid-engine, and now historic. Mine isn't sporty, and has no muscle.

I was hoping for better news. Odd. Never knew a head gasket to leak oil outside the engine. Shows what I know.

Usually, I would expect coolant in the oil with a leaking head gasket. Also, I dunno about a miss, but a leaky head gasket sure sounds odd.

Anyway, when you pull the plugs, ”one of these plugs is not like the others...”

Any stuff lying around you want to sell?

You guys may have posted this already, but if not, I thought I would let you know.... There is a yellow Formula at Speedway. Not bad shape considering..... Hood and doors look good. I should have taken pictures.

Anyway, FYI...

Wait. You posted earlier that it was wet or some such. Could be injector. Let's see, old school, but fuel, air, compression, spark. Not recommending this, but swapping 2 wires to see if the problem follows the wire or cylinder would be sure to make the motor run horribly. I suspect the injector also. If you're doing one injector, you may as well do them all. $$$

You could clamp the return line and see if the fuel pressure drops that should tell you if one is leaking.

I will be at the shop tommorow. I got everything out and the uppers in but the lowers I haven't figured out yet. The press is a big puzzle, it is hard to figure out the right configuration. The lowering ball joint are taller.

Lorne, you got the longer end links with the lowering joints, right?

Loren, yes, we're doing fine, thanks. The kids did a Home Depot project today. The idea wasn't to check the wire. I meant just swapping one end of the wire, as in connecting it to the wrong cylinder. Like I said, not a suggestion. The firing sequence would be off.
