Re: Flunked CAL SMOG pretest!
GOT IT FIXED!
Friend mechanic helped me.
As I had suspected, the plugs were installed poorly by the first guy.
3/4 had cracked insulators! He had torqued them in so tight, it had cracked them, also had dropped 2 plugs! Also, busted tip on the boot on # 1.
So we put in 4 new irridium plugs, new plug wires, and a new gas filter. VOILA! Runs like new!
However, the air hose is cracking at the other end, will replace.
Struts are bad, alignment is off, and front tires screaming for mercy, and wearing fast!
The headlamp is coming apart again, the silicon didn't hold it toghether for long, any ideas on how to glue it back togheeher?
The old gas filter had some tiny silvery particles dropping out...does that mean that the fuel pump is going out?
