Went to another parts store and the code there read misfire on cylinder four.
Since I had already changed the plugs, I bought a coil pack and changed that out.
It did the trick!
Thanks for all your help. ...

I know an older, wealthy lady who had an antenna put up at the hunting camp. This was years ago, by the way.
Long story short, the antenna wouldn't work and she was about to miss the Saints game on local TV.
She calls and says she wants to see the game and for them to send someone out. The pers...
