HO V-8 engine running rough...Tune-up the L69 HELP!
« on: March 19, 2012, 08:10:43 PM »
Hi all,

Engine seems to be running rough at idle and seems to not be accelerating as well as it should (9.6 seconds 0-60 >:( ???) I will try to get the battery checked first, since that would be the easiest to diagnose for any ignition related issues.

*"Check Engine" light comes on periodicallyChecked the computer for any disgnosis codes, nothing...

* Taking on a tune-up for the first time.  I've got the 1984 TA HO L69 engine.  Any pointers on how to get at the spark plugs? 

* The wires seem to lead under the engine, thus it seems rather difficult to access.  Should I put the car on ramps and get at it from below?  Any pointers or suggestions would be most appreciated :)

Thanks!
Chuck
