    Jesus Christ your car is a piece of shit. Take it to a dealer and get it fixed instead of changing the spark plugs every week.

    You're right man. Imagine how frustrated I feel. It is 10 years old and it's showing its age.

    Gotta be up...windows down would provide more torque and the engine wouldn't stall.

    What kind of vehicle is this? Could be that your fuel level sender/gauge is no longer accurate so you're actually closer to empty than you thought you were.

    is it throwing the PO9456 gyroscope code? If so, you'll need to change the hyspometer sensors which are located directly in your cock holster
