My 92 Interstate lost two cylinders that turned out to be one of the three ignition coils. While on a Patriot Guard mission it suddenly lost two cylinders after having a hard start cold problem. I found that one ignition coil had completely quit working so, i was getting no spark on number five and six. I limped home on four cylinders. I was surprised at how much power it still had on four. I replaced all three coils with OEM coils and new spark plug wires and never had trouble again.

If I don't do Facebook or Twitter, do I still have to do Social Media Distancing??
Those who say it cannot be done should try not to interrupt those who are doing it.
