    Well guys my ZC has been running pretty good, last night I took to the track and WTF :eek: it felt like the spark plugs got wet or something and it sounds like the car is running with only two pistons. I really sonds like it was carburator, I changed the spark plugs thinking it was that I also checked the spark plug cables and nothing I'm no expert on this kind of things son if anyone out there can please let give me there input on this matter I would really appreciate it. Please guys and it really be a shame, but something in the engine sounds funny, not real loud but funny. :worthy: :worthy: please I need help.................................. My mechanic is not back unit next week. So basiclly I'm fucked....Thank's guys for your usual help, you guys are the best :D :D

    Check the plugs, check the rotor and cap... chances are that you're not sparking on all cylinders.

    I've checked everything but the cap & rotor if that's not the problem what do you think it could be, hopefully not one of the pistons :eek: .

    you say you have checked the plugs but have you taken each one out and grounded it and turned the motor over for each individual plug to see if they are all firing?

    yeah inspect them all, buy new ones if needed, check cap, rotor, and loose grounds, and then maybe do a compression check.
