It sounds kinda like the engine is a little hot. If the engine runs too lean, a lot of times it can still stay running, but the plug filiment will have enough of a crack or break to keep it from refiring.



yea that makes sense my, engine would refire kind of easy but there was plently of smoke so it wasnt running lean . the one thing a racer told me was as long as there is smoke out of the pipe your good.

but if there is a leak thats a diffrent story.

but with the new plug, the low end runs, better and a constant idle with no drop off and a new fresh prefilter filter and inner filter, and there was a light blue smoke when i hit the gas.


i got my broken in my edmods, and like a dummy dint ask how many tanks he ran though it . but its still tight enough were i cant turn the piston over by hand.
and the old plug, was brown on the suface and the coils i dint check but i am going to.

Thanks for the thread stealing.....

Thank you but I don't think that either. A bad clutch bearing wouldn't toast the plug every time the engine idle.

I don't think the bushing could cause this since it ONLY happens when the engine idles for a while and dies.

I think you are right with the "to lean" theory. The car is running too hot/lean and will keep the plug glowing for as long as it is running.
When I let the engine idle it cools down and start loading fuel in the crank so it will shut of. At that point the filament is already broken and will not fire up again.
Two issues here is a combination.
1. Running too lean/hot
2. To rich on LSN that builds up and kills it at idle

Thank you very much.... I will report back!

if the plug is dicoloring i would try to re tune the engine before spending money on this stuff guys are saying. Set it to stock tune and gradually lean top and bottom till its running great and temp it so u can stay in prefered temp so you know that cant be an issue and im sure it wont happen again.
