the mirage is fixed. video inside. updated sept 22 the story is this. i'll be blunt. i downshifted to 2nd at 90mph. chaos ensued. that is all i will say. symptoms i have had since the incedent- car BOGS from 4700-7000. sometimes i will get lucky and for a brief moment the car will have full power in that range, but then still bog. from idle-4700 power is normal. stuff i have changed- spark plugs plug wires dizzy cap dizzy rotor I EVEN pulled off the timing cover to discover i was OFF by 1 tooth. fixed that, rotated the motor a few times and it was perfect. put it all back together. same problem. what i havent changed YET but is next on the list- fuel filters crank angle sensor?? actual distributor im tossing a new code, i just havent read it yet. if i reset the ECU, the code pops up within ~20 miles. input is appreciated.
