Ok, I have a 96 T-bird. I bought it with a v-6 engine but a short time ago the rod bearings sttarted to go and it began knocking. I thought this was the perfect reason to put a v-8 in it. I have a 96 v-8 car with 45K actual miles I picked up in september from a friend of the family after having a tree fall on it during hurricane gaston. Anyway, the v-8 car ran great up until the time I pulled the drivetrain out. It sat under a tarp in the back yard for about a month. I have since taken the complete drivetrain including engine, tranny, rear end, computer, and cooling/a/c system off the v-8 and put it in my car. The car runs and is driveable but it idles kinda high (around 1500rpm in park and 1000rpm in drive) plus it has a slight miss and hessitation. The miss is very noticeable at idle but seems to get better as the engine speed increases. The hessitation seems to be related to the miss and generally only when the accelerator is pressed at least half way quick. Is this normal after the engine sitting for a month or is there something I may have overlooked? It seems like its something simple, I just don't know what. I pulled the plugs and they looked fine however I did clean them and check them for proper gap. Could t be a sticky injector? If so, how do I determine which one and how do I fix it? I'm trying to fix this as inexpensively as I can as I have a baby one the way and need to make preporations for that. Any knowledge would be greatly appreciated.
