ill have to wait till sunday too check it out. ill buy a volt meter tomorrow to check the wires. now im not sure uf this matters but i replaced the wires and spark plugs. first then drive it for a week then replaced the coil when it acted up again.


but this afternoon the car acted worse then it did a couple weeks ago. this time it wouldnt even turn over. and it kept on dieing. i was lucky just to get it back to my house. which was 50 yards away.

like i said start with that connector check it over good because of our cars being a waste spark system if you lose power to one half of the coil you in turn lose to cly. If that connecter checks ok i would pull out the plugs and see how they look maybe fouling them with oil or fuel but i see that unlikely being its missing on two cly that are on the same coil i see this as being a spark issue 99 percent sure.

ok update time!!!!!


well i went to check the plug that goes int the coil pack and while i was removing it the middle wire which is green with a blue line broke off right at the plug. and after inspecting the wire it was corroded. so im assuming that the entire time this wire would cause the 350 351 352 error codes.


is this an easy fix? when i get the new pigtail should i use connectors? dont know how to solder so im hoping that wont be needed.


once again thanks for all the help. love this forum.

You shouldnt need to solder the wires together just use butt connectors that have the shrink wrap matterial on them... crimp em and heat em up to shrink wrap to keep moisture outta there and you should be fine

yes all that time for one broken wire no you would not have to solder if you get the pigtail you need it should come with everything you need to get the job done as far as what you should use I would do what dirt17 said
