I am confident we can resolve your problem together.Please remember I don't know your skill level. I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies to get to a satisfactory resolution.There will probably be some equipment needed for a proper diagnosis.

I am not compensated for my time until you leave a positive rating. Your rating should be based on the service you received.

Do you have a spray bottle with water? Try misting water over plug wires after dark. See if you see any sparks.
