'94 Tbird LX 4.6, 68k mi.
Had a lo-rpm miss. I poked around ...
In the plug wire boot, there is about a 3 " connector between the wire
conductor and the plug tip. Damned thang is ferrous (i.e. steel). The
connection between the wire conductor and the connector was evidently arcing
on cyl. 3. When I pulled the boot off, the connector (which was corroded to
hell-and-gone) stayed on the plug tip.
Wires were installed by a dealer in '99.
#3 plug wire is shot. I disconnected the wire at each end.
Had to happen on a Sat. after 5 pm.
What can I do with it to make it safe to drive until I can get
it properly repaired? Get a temp. replacement wire?
Can I drive it a little on 7 cyl? Maybe 2 miles?
Any help/info much appreciated. No guesses allowed. :-)
