    I had a 84 dodge truck years back and if suffered the same when there was lots of moisture, it turned out that I had some pretty bad vacuum leaks causeing the issue. I couldn't tell you why that caused the problem, but fixing the vacuum hoses did solve my problem. Although I think my dodge was and expetimental model because there were about 15 differant vacuum lines, 4 catalytic converters and 4 mufflers - that poor exhaust was so bogged down I'm suprised it even turned over... lol

    No, NaN is correct. The sign opens to the larger value.

    I still have an 84 Dodge pickup, just like that, lol. Not that I drive it, with it's epic 8 MPG fuel efficiency...I drive a GMC Yukon XL SLT that gets 14 MPG instead.

    A friend of mine's wife once put black tape over the oil pressure light so it wouldnt bother her....
    she didnt tell him (he is a good mechanic) till it locked up on way home.

    ignoring early warning signs are never good and often lead to more expensive repairs....

    when you have high resistance in the seconday of an ignition circuit, be it due to worn plugs or bad wires.... the secondary voltage must climb higher and higer to overcome that resistance. At some point, it may become easier to overcome the internal resistance of the coil than the higher external resistance of the plugwires/plugs...

    at that point, you also will not only need the tune up but a coil and a tow truck..
