    I was thinking maybe you had a mouse with a wooden leg trapped in the intake. Glad you found the problem. Those kind of things drive a person crazy.

    Glad you figured it out. If you haven't heard, it is EXTREMELY common on these cars. the stock balancers are CRAP. I actually bought a 95 gt for 1,000 that the owner though had blown the motor b/c the balancer was shot. I knew it over the phone and said "PLEASE don't start it anymore, I don't want risk locking it up ***as I tried not to laugh**** I am on my way with a truck to buy it." 1,000 later and the stock balancer off of my Orange car...I was doing donuts at the shop in my 1,000 car.
