My '88 740 gle wagon (b230f auto) seems to miss only when I accelerate hard from a stop turning left. It just looses power for a short moment and then regains it. Is this the kickdown cable needing adjustment? I also have rust on the long part of the dipstick, but the oil is not frothy. Could I have a leaky head gasket? The Bosch spark plug wires are 5 months old. And I think that I replace the plugs as well. <br>Thanks for any help,<br>Isaiah

Re: miss while turning left (iclapp)

The engine/trans mounts have split and turning shifts the engine against the bare wires in the engine wiring harness near the alternator and/or starter.<p>George Dill<p>

Yup that or the mounts might be making it loose ground and shutting down breifly on hard accel left turns.
