I had a bad wire on my LT that was extremely hard to diagnose. My symptoms were missing and hesitataion above an idle up to about 3000 rpm, then it smoothed out.

Took it to the dealer 2 times and it was finally found when the tech went to rearrange the plug wires while it was running....not recommended !

Looking back on it, he had swapped the coil out , which moved the wires,

and it ran OK for about 60 miles, then it shorted out again.

Anyone come up with an alternative source for plug wires instead of paying the dealer $50-60 per wire assembly? I pulled mine off and sheathed them with some spiral wind wire conduit to squeeze more life out of them... Just be nice to buy the componets and build a set myself for under $50 complete....
