Not sure T. Picked them up from Knecht's when we did the timing belt/water pump/idlers etc about 2 or 3 years ago (25k miles anyway).

Vacuumed out all 4 holes and tried a new set of plugs this afternoon. Sounds the same...kind of wants to start but feels like there's something wrong with the timing. Wondering if it swallowed a valve or something. I should pop the head to see what's under there.

Deciding on which way to go now....car is worth maybe $1k running. Not sure it's worth throwing any $/time at a 23 year old car with 240k on it.

I did find a used, 150k mile engine on CL for $250 though
