Once again, thanks for all the ideas/support/perspectives!!!
Air Filter is definitely a first step...
Cleaning the MAF is also a good option!!!
(as the two go hand in hand..)
Living in the city that has one of North America's highest prices for gas is a reality that one tries to ignore...and the only gas stations around are the 'big boys' so trusted fuel brands is not an issue..or at least little can be done about it.
I made the 10w comment (I know the car only wants 5) to see what the response would be ...thanks
Reprogramming the ECU...I saw
do it...is this what we are talking about...is this the appropriate 'Flash' drive?
But all in all (besides the Filter and the MAF) I think I have to live with the fact that the 3.6 hates the city, and the 13 lights and 9 stop sighs I have to go through to get to work!!!
But I do love my 'Babette'!!!
