just a heads up, you might want to post a nice intro about yourself, and let everyone know who you are and what your about before you ask for help on this forum. its a community, not q & a.

elvis04,

I have had bad sparkplugs out of the box. Swap the plugs between cylinders and see if the problem moves. There are a lot of nice folks here - tell us about yourself.
