Re: Cold Misfire that Warms Out pretty quick

Not loosing any noticeable coolant however I've only had the car for a couple months. I agree it probably is the coolant though.

Re: AC Only Blows Cold when Moving

It's not the Fuse.
I misread the book.

It Is RPM Related.
At Idle RPM the cold goes away but when I increase to 2000 RPM the cold comes back.

Thanks!
Bill

But as it warms up the misfire goes away and it runs smooth again, usually within 2-3 minutes. Check Engine li...
