Thanks for the replies. The thing that gets me is that the problem is intermittent- the car was totally fine driving home today, but felt like it was down 50 horsepower on the way home.

The ECTS/ t-stat are fine- they were the first things replaced when I bought he car- and the temperature shows the correct 3/8. Would a knock sensor retarding timing cause the engine to run rough or misfire? Because it sounds normal when it has this problem, it just drives extremely sluggish.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
