few months ago while accelerating I noticed I slight sputter and loss of power if i raised to rpms too high ( 5000-6) so i just eased off the gas and shifted. and It would be fine Hoping it was maybe a spark plug, filters, or a clog in an injector ,ect. I didnt worry about it because I thought (hoped) the injector n carburetor additives I used may have worked . :shakehead I'm dumb .
NOW Unless I'm In neutral coasting, or I'm giving it enough gas to accelerate. It BUCKS worse and worse w/in the past 3-4 days, I may have also confused knowing I needed motor mounts with engine bucks. :bricks1: I just cant afford then constant attention it needs . everyone rips my off. $500 to change spark plugs? please help me guys! ( :sadwavey: stealthee!

You need a specialist who can properly diagnose things or you are going to waste money.

Ground Zero Performance should be reasonably close for you. I strongly recommend you take it there. I could take care of you just as easily but I am probably 3 to 4 hours away.

I'm sure we could diagnose your issue online but without enough mechanical knowledge and access to parts it's not going to be easy.

Just to give you an idea where your costs should be at I charge $75 to change spark plugs.

Maybe you could make it more worth your time if you take it to gzp or my shop and have some upgrade work or like a timing belt job or something big done at the same time.

Could be about anything until you do some diagnosing to narrow it down. Fuel, spark, or electronics related.

yeah, I actually just decided i'm gonna have to take it up there tomorrow. If I would have taken it to him years ago , I know it would be in much better condition then its in now. I just could never afford to . and ended up always getting shit fixed by a guy who fixes cars on the side. :twak: I dont know what my options are gonna be after he tells me what it's gonna cost. I'm so screwed right now money wise . FUCK! i think im gonna cry
