    I had a feeling I should not have done that while the engine was warm.
    Ill know better next time. It feels like the engine is constantly
    missing...its somewhat smoother at high speed but still not right. Its
    especially noticable at low speed and idle . I made sure all vaccuum
    hoses are attached, and squirted WD40 in the front Injector wiring
    harnnesses as well as on the wires and coil. At night, i ran the
    engine to look for cross-firing/grounding spark..but saw none. What
    is the most likely cause of the misfire and should i try anything
    first before taking it in ? Thanks much. 2002 Santa Fe , 2.7 litre .

    What you fail to understand is that Dave's a moron
    Water and automoblie engines don't mix just as bible thumping morons
    and rational thought don't combine
