I got forwarded this message and recon you guys could
lend some advice. I've tried to answer as best I can

I assume you have measured the charging system regulating voltage and have more 
than 13.5V.

If you turn the key ON, do you hear a relay click and then another click ~1sec 
later? You should.

If #4 is not firing, then the cyl head temp sensor will never warm up and the 
engine will run rich. Check the dist cap, #4 SP connector, etc for any short to 
ground. Check the #4 injector wire to see if it is broken.

What had you been doing when it changed?
