Default My Bonny'* getting better

Well after messing with this SSEi almost since I got it, it finally getting better rather than worse like it was for a while.It'* been having this stumble with slight throttle(partly because of cheap gas I put in by mistake) and I finally got new plug wires today and it made a big difference. Wan't sure when they were replaced before I got it if ever.Also had a rusty terminal on a couple of coil posts.I was calling this Bonny the B but it'* getting better.Just catching up on all the maintence that should have been taken care of.I also replaced left front hub and Half-shaft,new tires. I thought this Bonny was getting to be a Money Pit.

When I got my 2000 SSEi almost a year ago, it came with no real maintenance records. Over the course of a few months I replaced all the filters, all the fluids, two wheel hubs, plugs, wires, coils, a few senders/sensors and was able to get a few mod'* in as well. After you get everything caught up and all is running well, you'll go trouble free for a very long time. Then you can start buying go fast parts and warehousing them in your spare bedroom while you build a shed, to get your garage back, so you can install them....just like me!
