Re: Need Help Diagnosing Popping

No luck last night. I pulled the cap hoping to find some moisture or tracking and nothing, it was clean. I ran the car at dusk and couldn't find any arching either. My temp gun should arrive today and hopefully see what header is off. I did pull the plugs again after the engine warmed up. The color looked more consistent. There wasn't one wet plug like before. If the popping is due to a valve adjustment, think a comp test would tell? Thinking if one is stuck open a bit? Because popping would be fuel bleeding into the exhaust stroke, right? And my concern is how this is effecting my AFR. With the Fuel injection, my one o2 is in that header
