Hi everyone, for the last few weeks this has been happening for the first 10 or 20 seconds after starting the car, particularly on cold starts..
My mechanic apparently found some oil leaked onto the spark plugs, so he changed both the upper and lower seals. The oil possibly killed my distributor as well so we installed a new one..
My ignition, fuel and air systems are in top condition so this is something of a puzzle to me...
Why would I have this misfiring and sputtering only when I just start up..
The only thing that seems unusual on the engine to me is that the pcv valve is pretty loose.. I don't think its enough to cause a vaccuum leak, but it still feels looser than I remember it being..
Other than that, everything is in good condition..
I was thinking IACV as well, but as I said the problem is only for 10 or 20 seconds when I first start the car..
