  1. You need a good scanner to isolate what cylinder is misfiring. More that likely its a coil pack but pull the boots and plugs to check .
  2."+negative+battery+cable&pos=16 9/10 times I replace them on every job. It's going to be burnt up at the alternator.
  3. Check the main ground on the alternator the the rf frame rail.

    1992 4.9L excess oil consumption

    Make sure the 1 rear oxygen sensor is working it might be lazy. As for other fuel mileage items go with the basics, tire pressure, winter fuel will give you 2-3 mpg less. Do you see any oil leaks at all or blue exhaust? Could the intake manifold bolts be loose under the valve cover? It's possible but that would create a vacuum leak and a higher than normal idle. Maybe hook a vacuum gauge up and see make sure the reading is 18-21 " at idle warm. The oil cooler lines do leak on these motors along with the oil filter adapter housing. The adapter housing is held down by 2 15mm bolts. Just loosen the one under the distributor and remove the other taller bolt. You will find 2 big fat seals in the oil filter housing i'm sure dealer only.
  5. one located on each cylinder head on the waterpump housing side. You have a severe head gasket issue if your blowing freeze plugs.
  6. Check for a vacuum leak on the intake manifold
  7. Logan your correct. The power steering lines do run along the front of the subframe. I would maybe check the lower trans cooler line fitting with the snap ring connect. The oring in the push fit connector deteriorates overtime and will leak trans fluid.
  8. The front bumper has 2 mini impact shocks on the body attached to the bumper for a crash. On some of these older cars I have seen these shock leaking. I wouldn't worry about it at all.

    Leaking grease from CV boots?

    Pretty common on the 2000 -2003 cv axles. They started using a redesigned cv clamp that doesn't apply the force like the older clamps.
  10. Low or NO freon in a/c system.

    Intermittent start/run

    What is within spec psi of the fuel pump? Is it a clean cut off of the car or a cuggle then it will quit?
  13. Do the fans come on when you turn the ac on? If you disconnect the coolant temp sensor the fans will come on. try that
