Success!Daytona running sweet...

After all the work yesterday, making sure of the timing marks, etc, combined with discovering that my EGR valve had stuck open...the car is running great now.

What a relief...that was a wonderful sound when the egr unpopped. I knew I had found something at last. Put it all back together, and the car runs better than it ever has, with more power.

So now, I have new timing belt, freshened vac lines, repaired a few wiring issues, new plugs, plug wires, cap and rotor, clean fuel injector, clean IAC motor. Should be good to go for awhile.

Thanks to all those who helped. I learned alot, and I hope to actually retain what I've learned. I don't know what I would do without Allpar!

Excellent job, Russ. It can be very frustrating putting all that time into it.

That is why I enjoy reading these threads. I always learn a lot and it is amazing when I'm working on a car, how much the info I get from this site saves me a ton of time and money.

Lebaron is running fine, except it needs an egr valve when I can get to it. Just a rough idle every now and then. Otherwise it is running fine.

Daytona was perfecto on the 50 mile round trip commute today. Very easy starting, smooth running and better power and throttle response than she's had in a long time.

Thanks again to everyone for all the advice!
