    Sorry to say this but when you post, all of the info is needed. The cel was on and you had a fouled plug and it pings. That all would have helped knowing in the beginning. I just give up sometimes.

    Agree with Raideron start with the basics. There is a company that independent auto repair shops get their information from, this same information is available inexpensively for people that work on their own cars.. The information is year make and model specific, covering repair procedures, torque specifications, fluid capacities and specifications, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate http://bit.ly/AllData_Repair_Manuals_Online
    Autozone have some popular workshop manuals for free on line once you register (for free) on their website http://bit.ly/autozone_repair_info.
    and get an online repair manual subscription.
