OMG after OVER a month of my crap running engine, I finally got it all fixed. The rest of the parts came in yesterday, so I took it over and had it fixed today at our personal mechanic.
All in all I had 6 spark plugs replaced (bosch copper core), the 3 plug wires (which included those little connectors and the 3 coil ends. He also tightened my torque converter.
***********Acceleration resistance & popping resulted from engine misfiring (plugs, wires, coil ends), worn front flex disc and worn lower control arm bushings! I am glad that I will hear no more pops and feel no more accel resistance! ALL DONE!!!
Thank you all for helping me diagose this problem. I couldn't have done it without you. (I just wish I could have done the work myself!
