Question

Car is down on power, overheated slightly and I noticed a pop, that seemed to come out the right side of the car when I get into it. Checked the roller rockers and everything up top seems ok. Pulled the plugs this am and here's what I got. What do you guys think?

You definately have a range of color. It looks like you may have picked up a vacuum leak on the second cylinder on the top row. The last one on that row is not really burning well (plug wires?)

Oger, What would cause a vacume leak on that second cylinder? Plug wires are pretty new, but I'll check that last one on the top row. It looks slightly wet with more deposits of a rusty color.

By the way, top row is right side, bottom row is left side. Plugs to the left are at front of motor, those to the right are at the rear.
