    Hey guys - I drove my car last night and it seemed to run fine. I just finished reswapping it from another EK where the motor always ran well. This morning I went out to start it and the car turns over but doesn't catch and run normally.

    It has been really cold as well. I thought maybe a clogged fuel filter or clogged injectors? But then I noticed carbon build up in the throttle body after trying to start it a bunch. What would cause smoke to come out of the intake manifold? Is something clogged?

    so a friend told me to check the cap and rotor on the distributor. When I did I saw the rotor was corroded prolly from the damp woods I had been living in.. I happened to have a new rotor at home and changed it out. It started and ran after that!

    Now I am working on getting my idle to settle at the 800 rpm mark. Is that all just the throttle cable adjustment?
