i recently replaced my 94 218 engine (170,000 miles) with a newer 97 318 engine (32,000 miles)


my problem now is that it idles nice in park/neutral, but when you put it in drive it gets a little jumpy.. especially when you're just taking off - it almost feels like a little miss



I've changed the spark plugs twice now, once with champion rc17yc, and once with autolites.

there's a new cap/rotors/wires



any ideas whats causing it?

You might have bent the crankshaft position sensor. Ive done that once before stabbing a trans in and forgot to remove the sensor first. It would idle ok, would drive forward but sputtered and bucked and backfired, and would instantly die when put in reverse. Took me a while to figure out exactly what the problem was lol.
