My question (keeping in mind Fudman's initial response to a similar question in post #8 of this thread & a more detailed response in post #19):
Q: Could a clogged CCV or dipstick tube really cause 3 cylinders to misfire consistently?
Please read the suggested threads and add value, either by pictures or by descriptions, so the next person stands on your shoulders.
