Can i Borrow something?

Do we have any type of data logging software that can be loaded onto a laptop?

I really want to find out whats going on with my car in the morning.
I dont want to take it to a dealership or any where else. Just throwing it out there.

I guess if theres some master mind out there i'll explain

Starts/Idles/Revs Just fine.
Go into reverse No problems.
Put it in frist, Clutch in Justfine
Start to let out with with gas, and it totaly just wants to die. It sounds like a subie, to where it sounds likeits running on 3 cyc then it cuts out to 2. Give it a few seconds and goes back to normal. Start to go again and same thing.

The catchis... If i rev it to 3k and start to go, Its fine, it may studder a few feet from there but for the most part its fine. After it warms up and the rest of the day, You can run the piss out of it.

I just dont know, It has new Spark Plug Wires, K&N Panal thats clean (i rotate it every so often when i knock the dust out of it) I replaced the fuel filter not that long ago I Run 93 Oct.

So if anyone has anysuggestions, please chime in.

make sure your spark plug wires are pressed all the way down into the coil and in the head.

do you have a tune?

For my car in the past, problems at high load low rpm have always been ignition related. Hardware not software.

take a look at the spark plugs before you throw down the cash on a coilpack.
