Ok so my friend and I were driving my car and he already has owned an rx7 fpr a while and he said my car was running rough and it could have been misfireing. Would it just be the spark plugs and wires or what, I was wondering how could i fix the misfire or is it even missfire if my engine runs rough in the higher rpms, if you could help plz. Thx

Try adjusting TPS, the A/F...check timing too...vacum leaks...etc...



What RPM is it doing it at?

If you had an idle problem I would focus on the throttle position sensor(s) (TPS)
