bpc6es- brand new- actually, they did not look wet- just a small bit of soot-all plugs looked the same. i went back out to start the cold engine. at first it would not fire at all. after some cranking i got it to start- still running very rough although idle is around 1k, and now check engine light is on w/ cold motor. it seems as though the longer it runs, the rougher it gets w/ more hunting. i was thinking spark, but i grounded a plug at each wire and had blue spark-not super hot- but looked ok. maybe i am losing spark under compression? i cracked the banjo bolt at the rail again while running and had fuel spraying out. i guess it could be a weak fuel pump, but my experience is that the pump just dies and give a no start. i forget- does a bad amm trigger a check engine light?
