Angry It Was The Water Temp Sensor (ect)

I HAD ROUGH IDEL EVERY SINCE I BOUGHT THIS CAR. HAVE BEEN TOLD IT WAS STUCK RINGS TO BENT VALVES TO FUEL DISTRIBUTER AND FUEL PRESSUER REGULATOR. I BOUGHT A FUEL INJECTION FROM A JUNK YARD AND I STILL HAVE IT IF ANY ONE NEEDS ONE. IT HAS THE DISTRIBUTOR, EHA, FUEL PRESSUER REGULATOR AND THE INJECTION INTAKE MINUS THE BIG RUBBER GASKET. I WAS DEPENDING ON A MECHANIC WHO WAS A LITTLE OUT OF HIS LEAGUE ON THIS ONE. I HAD THE CAR CHECKED OUT IN MYRTLE BEACH AT THE ********. THEY HAD THE RIGHT EQUIPMENT AND A MECHANIC WHO SEEMS TO KNOW HIS STUF. IT CAME DOWN TO THE WATER TEMP SENSOR (ECT). THE OMS WERE WAY OUT OF SPEC ON IT SO HE REPLACED IT ADJUSTED THE CO TO THE FUEL DISTRIBUTOR, CLEANED THE PLUGS. IT WAS RUNNING WAY TO RICH. IT IS RUNNING BETTER THAN IT EVER HAS SINCE I GOT IT. I SPENT A TON OF MONEY TO GET THIS THING TO RUN DECENT. I AM GOING TO PUT HER UP FOR SALE. IT HAS NEW TIRES, NEW SOFT TOP AND THE WIRES AND DISTRIBUTOR AND ROTOR ARE LESS THAN A YEAR OLD. I DID THE REAR BREAKS PADS AND ROTORS. I NEED A DRINK!!!!!

I got trouble again

I am having rough idel again. it has gotten worse today. i dont know if its the plugs. I spent 400 bucks on it and I am looking at having to take it to a dealer to see if they can tell me what is wrong, I put some fuel injection cleaner and ran that through on the way back from the beach, I put in some more gas and added some marvel mystery oil to it. I don't know if the plugs are fouled or what, I got a add in the paper this weekend. I got to get it running better or no one will want it. I washed and waxed it today looks like a dream runs like a night mare.
