Blown Coils, Fuses and Running Rough, now Fixed

First off, Thanks a MILLION to all that helped along the way...
I got my 04 Ruibcon running smooth and perfect again. I did find a destroyed wire and repaired it. Only took 7.5 hours to find the wire, 20 mins to repair and now back road worthy...
Thanks a lot to Jerry Bransford JPDOCDAVE and the others...

"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president."

Wow, good job!! Wiring issues like that aren't easily found so kudos to you for figuring it out!
Remember that having a different opinion doesn't also require one to be a jerk when expressing it.

When you have a choice, buy American.

Good to hear!

Thanx for the follow up. Which wire was the culprit? I give you allot of cred for willingness to fix this!

it was the blue and orange wire coming from the coil pack plug. It was pinched behind the valve cover where one of the studs sticking thru the firewall worked its way thru the outside cover and caused the short.
