Our 99 Bonnie. It takes a lot for me to get frustrated, annoyed, angry...call it what you want...
My wife has been telling me for a week that the car has been very sluggish on acceleration from a rolling stop. She told me again today while I was at work. So, on my way home I stopped at the AC Delco store and bought a fresh set of wires. Then, swung over to Advance for a set of TR55s, air filter and fuel filter.
Got home, looked at the mileage log only find I did this at 107,000 (I'm at 148,200 now). No biggie...somewhat to be expected.
Begin the work...popped the engine cover off and begin inspecting. Coolant is oozing out of the damn UIM gaskets. Running down the block and sitting in the valleys of the LIM and on top of the tranny. Coolant bootle is slightly low.
Anger, anger, anger. It really pissed me off. Back to the mileage log...I did the UIM gaskets, LIM gaskets, and Bob Dillion upper on 8/12/05 or 121,300 miles. I'm now at 148,200.
This will be intake #4
on this car.
I guess I'll have to put the UIM, UIM gaskets, and LIM gaskets on a 9 month maintenance plan (or every 25,000 miles...which ever comes first).
I'm so frustrated and disgusted with this car. I really hate to say and will probably eat my words later, but I don't even care anymore. It'* going to southern Kentucky in two weeks (1,100 miles round trip). When I get home I guess I'll tear into it AGAIN.
