Okay, I just spent today replacing all vacuum hoses going into the intake plenum, new spark plugs, wires, and some other misc. items. The car doesn't seem to run any better. It starts up and seems to run alright, but when I rev the motor the RPM's come down and the motor seems to stumble a little bit and the idle speed fluctuates about three times and then the idle smooths out. The whole time you can only hear this, from inside the car the tach needle stays put at about 800 RPM right where it should be. I am putting in a new dist. cap and rotor this weekend, I'm just waiting for the parts, does anyone have any suggestions as to what might be wrong with the car? I'm trying to get it straightened out ASAP since I just bought the car and it's my daily driver once I sell my other ride. Thanks for the input.
