Got my car back!!!



For those of you here that knew about the few problems it was having and helped me, thanks so much! I got it back last night after getting back in town. I take it to Ford Motorsports here (Gary Pierson) and they love it and take really good care of it. After the O2 Sensors (front, before the cats) were replaced, it was still a little off. It ended up being 3 spark plug wires?? that were misfiring at cylinders 1, 5 & 6. I'm off to wash it and driving the HELL out of it this weekend. haha. It's running good and you don't know how much you love something until you don't have it for a few days.

Soooo...thank you so much for your help and advice. My next mods are getting it tuned, off-road x pipe to finish the exhaust, and CAI. Saleen body kit, new wheels and having it dropped are shortly after that. New pics coming soon!

Have a great weekend all!

EDIT: to my buds in admin, can someone please edit the thread title for me?? lol

^^^ She hasn't posted due to pissed offness, it was perfectly fine for a 150ish or so mile round trip, and then when she got back to town, it was back to the same bucking BS it was doing before...

Re: Got my car back!!!

Thanks Herb.

Yeah, I'm not very happy with my car right now. lol

It's going back tomorrow night after work. I don't know what's going on, it was running perfect and just started "bucking" and running like crap again and the exhaust gets really poppy and it loses power. I've had it for almost 2 years now and haven't had a problem with it until they replaced the O2 sensors, ever since then, it's been a little off.

Re: Got my car back!!!

i had similar problems on mine - i kept failing emissions. i forgot what i did exactly (o2 sensor and spark plugs replaced), but i remember after resetting the ecu by doing some crazy steps, the problem was fixed.

Re: Got my car back!!!

Are the new spark plugs at the proper gap? Oh wait, it was the wires. Did you check the coil plugs?
