hey Guys,

Im interested in a 91 that is currently listed in the classifieds, the owner states that with fresh spark plugs it runs great, however after a short bit the plugs burn out and it smokes and acceleration weakens.

price seems fair considering what is listed above can be fixed..? I have tried searching for posts from people having similar issues but haven't had much luck.

any thoughts; and thanks for the help!

Run checks for grounding on the oxygen sensor input wire.

Check or replace Temp2 sensor.

Plugs "burn out"?

thats sort of what i was thinking... Any ideas on the cost to address a problem like this, that is if it hasn't damaged anything else?

also, is this a common problem? i could not find any other info that seemed relevant...
