Because 80s/90s boosted cars that haven't died a firey death always do.

I finally got the courage up to tackle the last two spark plugs for a check.

You need courage for these two because. Well, there's a chance you'll wind up in the Emergency room for stitches if you don't remove half of the stuff under the hood.

The plugs on cylinders 1 and 4 are coal black.

I'm leaning toward a bad coil pack as cyl 1 and 4 are both atvthe front of the block. But a stuck injector isn't out of the question nor is bad grounding.

I promise a full photo tour of the car this weekend.
