So I just got my xj6 working again and now I wanna tackle the rough running issue because it’s really bothering me now especially after I get out of my 94 xj12.
Some back story is that I got this car and the guy (a good previous owner) had replaced the distributor (Pertronix) and coil ( flamethrower) but supposedly couldn’t get it tuned properly and didnt have time so he sold it.
It still ran so I drove it home 20 miles. When I started looking around I found 2 plug wires mixed up… the car ran much better after that. I still thought there’s a misfire or something of that sort so I replaced the plugs and wires too but that made no difference. The timing I adjusted myself just till it seemed to run the best so I know that needs to be done right. But turning the distributor both ways does not make the rough running go away. I also had replaced the coolant temp sensor but it made no difference and looked new anyways
Now I’m not experienced with engine timing and distributors so I don’t know where to start on getting this thing running better. I do have the old distributor and coil that I could put if if I had to
