Okay, how bout these two.

I've noticed a couple of oddities that i hope aren't unique to my car. That way at least someone may have a clue.

One is this hesitation the car has while accelerating during left turns - any speed and any degree of turn. It'* barely noticeable, doesn't seem to be preventing acceleration but is there. There'* an extremely slight vibration associated with it, as well as what could be described as a very low rumble. I wouldn't bother bringing it up, it'* just that when you can turn one way and get different results from turning the other way you tend to be a little concerned. CV joint maybe? Tie rod? I replaced the stab/swaybar up front after i found it was broken(!) as well as a couple of bushings. That was a couple of years ago, but visually that all looks fine.

The other is an even more mild question i shouldn't even ask. I know it must be the blower motor, but i guess my question is 'why'. Whenever the car turns right while the air is on (heat), there'* a 'cricket chirping' coming from the passenger dash side. Not during left turns, not with the a/c on, but only with those specific variables. :dontknow: Must be blower motor judging by location and event. But again, anyone have an idea why? I'd like to say it'* going bad, but why is the noise not present at all times of use and drive? Does it get loose or something?

i think i would inspect and reseat all the spark plug wires and make sure they arent close to anything metal
