ignition control module? I found that p1361 means ignition control low circuit. Pull your coils off and take your ignition control module to autozone to test it.

This. They have a tester there, and it's pretty accurate. ICM's usually go for around $120ish.

bad engine ground?

I found this.

P1368 IC Cylinder 8 Not Toggling After Enable

P1361 IC Circuit Low Voltage

yep,


how's the wiring to the icm? your car IS 7 years old. check all grounds... no sense in throwing parts at it and hoping it runs better..

I think I have to be logged in for you to see it. I relogged in , so it should work for a while again.

Have you checked your air filter and pcv valve?

I believe wet plugs mean you are running rich... which can be caused by a plugged or dirty air filter.

If the PCV valve is plugged or inoperative, it can cause a buildup of crankcase pressure. This forces oil and oil vapors past the rings and valve guides into the combustion chamber.

Also...may or may not apply to your case but piston rings or cylinder walls that are badly worn can lead to wet plugs. Oil may also be pulled into the chamber because of excessive clearance in the valve stem guides, or badly worn valve stem seals.

make sure you clean & dry the plugs before putting them back in.

I also found this online..

"plugs are not producing enough spark to ignite the fuel, the cylinder copmressoin is not sufficient for combustion, the spark timing is icnorrect, or the air fuel ratio is way off. Your job is to determine which is the case and discover the reason why. You may want to expressly start with a spark tester that will eventually test for sufficient firing voltage ( cheap tester can be bought any parts supply store for a few dolars). Then check cylinder compression. If the compression is low you should pefrorm a cylinder leak down test to determine why the compression is low. Finally, if you have good spark, good compressoin, and the timin is ok then appropriately look for a really big vacuum immediately leak. hint: (maybe a stuck open EGR valve or a newly ruptured brake booster diaphragm) "
