Drove the SVX to the store yesterday. About 5 miles. All was fine, when I got back in and started it something felt wrong, was running rough almost like it wanted to stall. I figured at the time that it just needed to warm up. It continued to run bad on the way home, pulling into an intersection, I was worried that it would crap out. It never stalled and I checked, it did not give any codes.

When I turn the key it starts and idles, it doesn't bounce the RPM, but there is something going on with it like it is struggling.

Where should I start with trouble shooting? Plugs? Coils? Vacuum? I hate this!

Any of those will cause a problem without giving a code. If it idles OK then it won't be a vacuum leak. A plug and a coil, will usually give a bit of intermittent trouble before it goes completely. What ever it is, it will probably get worse, making it easier to find.;)

I guess I will try to change the plugs, then maybe buy a new coil and try moving it  into different positions.

I think beyond that it will need to go to the shop and I'll cross my finger that they can find the issue.

Phew, it turned out to be an easy fix just a bad coil.  :dance:
