    PRE No-Start: I pulled the spark plugs (one at a time) just to check and make sure they were all in good condition. They all looked fine so I buttoned everything up and went to start it up. Well its cranking but it wont fire. I didnt pull anything other than one plug wire at a time and only from the spark plug itself. I went over all the connections and everything is as it should be. I switch the key on and the main relay switches on. This is all 10-15 minutes after I had been driving it for about an hour or so... Any thoughts?

    lets just say it was as easy as turning the car around to face the opposite way. can you guess why?

    I don't know how turning the car around would fix that... but no, all wires were correct. worse than that

    F'N spam! this was almost buried lol
    Yes. I was that stupid. It was at most a .5 - 1% grade driveway in front of work. I was on my way to the gas station and decided to use works tools to check and see if I needed new plugs while I was out. Rep for solving the great mystery. Frodo, if this is what's wrong with your car just off yourself as I should have.
