Red Hot Cat, Misfires, Running Rich
I really need to spend more time on here. I feel bad for always asking, but not answering anyone elses problems. But again... I have a problem.
Yesterday morning it was probably 30F, and when I tried starting my car it would just crank but no run. Four tries later it starts but runs like shit. Tried it again, started but again, ran like shit. The day before it ran like a dream no signs of it hiccuping. Redid my timing chain 1000 miles ago since one of the cams (don't know which) were a couple teeth retarded, and my car got its balls back.
-The tach show the rpm barely fluctuating.
-It doesn't idle worth shit.
-Acceleration is a joke, 0-30 in 30 seconds.
-It would seem its running lean, but its really running really rich.
-I got a P0300 (Random Misfire) that is it.
-And now my catalytic converter is glowing cherry red now.
Anyways changed spark plugs & the coil pack so far. No dice. Well I'm at my stepdads garage trying to diagnose it, so any help in the mean time would be appreciated.
Fuel Injectors Leaking/Stuck Open?
Bad Fuel Regulator
Is there a cold start valve?
EVAP or PCV stuck open.
Any other ideas? Thanks.
