: 95 Deville Concours 4.6 bucking while in gear and AC compressor on

I just changed sparkplugs, ISC motor and now the car bucks wildly while in gear and the AC compressor is on. If I turn the AC off, it stops. I'm not sure what to do, any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

Did you also remove and clean the 4 coils and their base contacts as well as the ICM and ICM ground lead ?? Are all the plug wires connected as shown ?

1995 - Are the plug wires new ??

No, I didnt change plug wires, they are all hooked right, maybe just need new ones. Why would it only do it when the AC is on?

After the fuel rail recall, my '97 had a misfire. Wires looked fine, but a new set cured it. A/C puts a load on the engine. Does it also mis on light acceleration?

Thanks, I cleaned the terminals on the ICM and all seems fine, for now. I will replace spark plug wires next just because they are old. They test fine but will change just for preventative maintenance. Thanks Alot!!

A/C Delco wires are expensive. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Ranger I was reading your post , where you asked if "...it also mis on light acceleration.." .I have asked this question several times over the last year or so, about this phenomena, cuz I have the same experience. Actually it feels like a slight hesitation, when its under any load, like going up a slight incline, it hesitates, so I drop it down into 3rd to build up rpm's and it smoothes out. Sorry I am referring to my 94 Concours, 4.6L. But I have to keep the rpm's up I don't get any codes, but it is irritating. Any thoughts?.... BTW I love my car, and plan on keeping it, it has about 101K miles. If it's the plug wires, can they be checked before replacing them? I ask because when I bought the car I had a mechanic check and repair any/all problems, and replacement of the wires was one of the issues. That was at about 85K miles which was maybe 2 years ago.
Thanks

If you have resistance meter, you can check the ohms on the plug wires.

If you read the thread that I linked you in your PM, I believe that I checked my wires and they Ohm'd out OK, but in the end they where the cause of my misfire.
