I had an 86 Coupe many years ago, ran fine the entire time I owned 
it.  When I sold it, I decided to wash off the engine the day before 
the guy came to pick it up.  Bad mistake.  The engine would hardly 
start, and I had to go change the cap, rotor and plug wires just to 
get it started.  It still didn't run like it used too, had a stumble, 
poor acceleration.  Fortunately for me, the guy still bought it.
