One to think over
Yesterday I noteiced that my car started to skip (2000 ssei, 42000 miles on it) with a blinking ses light. So this morning I get up and call the dealer, they said they would be able to to get it in. So I go inside and they thake my info as usuall and quote a 2 hour diagnositc fee and a few hours latter I get a call saying I need new plugs and plugwires (code returned 3 cylinders missfiring). I then ask them how much, a total of around 400 bucks with the 140 diag fee, I then tell them I think I can manage to change them myself. So I bring the car home, after getting the stuff I need, and me and my dad change the plugs and wires and imagine what we found, the car has the same exact skipp as it had before. So I guess my question is anyone have any ideas on what would make the car misfire on 3 different cylinders? The funny part is I asked them are you absolutatly sure that changing the plugs and wires will fix the problem; the answer "Yes, Sir". I guess I am going to have to have small conversation with them tomorrow but just wondering if anyone has any ideas. Oh FYI it really skipps when you step on the gass quick, and when driving up hills, but the results can be recreated with the car in the garage in park and just taping on the gas peddle.
