Default shitty idle and tranny noise

my idle is weird, sometimes its idling good one time the car just stalled. I just installed new 9mm spark plug wires in would that be the problem or would it be my AFM? And sometimes when i step on the gas it like sputters like its trying to go but wont and then goes. And i can hear a ringing/buzzing noise from my transmission is this signs of transmission failure??

Mike

Kind of a weird issue.
Did you install the wires in the correct firing order 1342.

yup there in the right firing order. I noticed something different about them, they don't sit all the way to the bottom so like that the top boot of the wire is flush with the valve cover. Think that might be it, because the bottom is plastic not rubber i was thinking about shaving the bottom down so it fits.

Default ringing noise

Did you ever figure out what the ringing noise was? I have a ringing noise that sounds like it's coming from the trans tunnel

You ask a person that was banned if they fixed their problem? Good job slick. LOL

Holy ******* ****. People want to bitch about members not searching. I do an extensive search and find one thread that seems to fit my issue, reply to it, then you want to flame me for that. douche bag

Step one is searching, you are correct. however, the next step involved reading and comprehension, which you failed miserably. you might as well be posting a classified ad asking William Shakespeare if he masturbated to an iambic pentameter rhyrhm.

I understand that I failed to see the greyed out name at the left. When you're cruising the number of posts that I did, looking at the post not who posted it was the task at hand. A simple, "hey man, that guy was banned" would have been sufficient. This was just another case of someone being a dick on here when they didn't have to.

Instead of "cruising posts" here, why don't you "cruise the M4M section ofcraigslist" and stop wasting out bandwidth?

lol. I'm fairly satisfied with the outcome of this thread.

hustler, believe it or not I actually respect you on this site. Hell, Half the time I'm laughing my *** off when you respond to a stupid question. At what point is me worrying about my car breaking and wanting some help troubleshooting a sound I've never heard stupid? If I knew everything, then I wouldn't have to post. For those that care, I'm going to try to get a sound clip ("Name that Tune") in the general section into the post I started on this subject.

And I thought that you being a "medical physicist" was grounds enough for calling you a "rocket surgeon." That part, by itself, was quite amusing.

Kudos for searching. And kudos for ending up with an amusing thread. It's a win-win.

Don't get all emotional on us. I am pretending to "experience human emotion right now" with a woman and that alone sucks the life out of me. You could respond with a "**** you, *****-tranny handball bottom" and its sufficient. I know everything, I'm the man...don't ever forget it.

Rocket surgeon might be giving me too much credit. If anyone ends up i Huntsville, shoot me a pm and I'll take you around the cancer center if interested. If you have never seen a linear accelerator used for treating cancer, it's pretty neat. I'm sure this won't be my last thread that I receive some ****. I'm still here

I posted a link to the engine noise I am having, camera did a good job of isolating the noise. I think braineack was right with HLA noise.

Can I buy a pack of reds and smoke in the cancer center?


I like you, I don't know why...stop taking this **** so seriously. Its the internet, and I was never loved. Hold me, its cold and I'm alone.
