You talking about number 4 spark plug wire? Will it do the same thing if you pull one of the others? In the past, pre-computer years, One tech tip, if battery is a little down, plug a spark plug. It's not fighting compression on that cylinder and that cylinder uses no spark voltage. I tried it one time, it worked. Of course that was about 50 years ago. I can't say if that relates to your issue?
