Pony down!

My stang is suffering from a very rough idle, which triggered my check engine light or visa versa. Checked air flow yesterday and found a bag of potato chips (empty) under my air filter, found that right after the light went on. Thought I fixed the problem but today it was rough all day. Any ideas?

Unplug your battery for 30 min and then crank it up and let it do the idle relearn.

Put a large drink near the filter, it may still be firsty.

Speaking of pony down mines going in the shop for three days to fix the rear bumper damage she sustained from being rear ended last week.

Any good advice on anti-joyride preventative techniques? My Bimmer came back at one point with 22 additional miles and it wasn't even modified or an M.

Was sideswiped by a guy and when I asked the dealer shop if 22 miles was necessary to test run a rear quarter panel repair he said something like yeah its part of them making sure it drives fine and you can't test it with only a couple miles.

Complained and got a free oil change. I don't care about no stinking oil change...

I'm more concerned with them not properly warming up the car and curb rashing my rims which I'll be sure to take pictures of before.

22 seems kinda excessive esp for bumper work. I make a point to talk to them b4 hand telling them I'm kinda fussy about my car and we both note mileage. I also put a note in it asking them to respect my car. It'll keep the honest people honest.

22mi doesn't sound excessive for a test drive. However the note is a really good idea.

For a quarter panel repair that didnt include anything besides pulling the rear driver side wheel... Yeah I does. But not if you consider a food run and maybe a couple of beer runs 22 miles wouldn't sound so excessive.

I was talking test drive in general. For a bumper repair, I wouldn't think a test drive is needed.

I feel your pain man, I can't leave my car anywhere... I usually do 99% of everything myself, I guess u kinda have to respectfully make it clear that this is your baby and please take care of it... Hopefully I won't have to go thru this anytime soon :-/
