So, its gotten cold again today (yesterday it was 50) and the car has this jolt still. I was doing further research and found that with the replacement of the crankshaft position sensor, you have to have a CASE learn done. WOuld that solve any of the issues I'm having with this car?

I called a dealer and they quoted me for 154 dollars (ouch). Any alternatives to another CASE learn?

Where are you located? Might be a member near by that can do a CASE learn. But for the price they want, I would look for a aeroforce scan gauge. It has a built in CASE learn. Used gauges are about $150-$200

I'm located in New York City. I'll update that on my profile (thought it said that somewhere).

Helps us a lot if it'* on your profile, like what I have. The closest person I can think of near you is Billboost. But if it comes down to paying that kind of money to get it done, I would just pick up a aeroforce. Even if you don't want to keep it. Just use it, then sell it and get most if not all your money back. Just make sure it'* a newer style with CASE learn built in.

Alright that sounds good. I got the o2 sensor changed by a friend of my dad'*, the jolt didn't disappear, but theres no more smoke coming from the back of the car (I guess that means no more rich burn) the old o2 sensor was pretty much smoked, so I hope that improves fuel economy (although I understand it wont get the best considering its standard fuel economy rating, cold gas formula, and 10% ethanol mixed into the gas here, as well as general snow driving atm). The guy who changed the o2 is well versed in cars, and said the jolt was coming from the ignition system, and that he'd take a look at it. I'll keep you guys up to date. Thanks for always helping, I'll have to stick around here.

So I thought I'd coast through the winter and cold weather with this seeming ignition problem. Now a new problem has arisen. I've started taking classes at a CC for the time being and I've got a commute for 40 miles 2 times a week. Over the last two weeks I've seemingly lost 4 QUARTS of oil! Last week, the low oil light came on and the dipstick showed a dangerously low amount of oil. I put in 5w-30 the first time and bought two quarts of 10w-30 and put it in last week. I check the oil yesterday morning and it seemed to be going fine. Then I turned on the car tonight and the light came back on. I checked the dipstick after I turned it off after about 2 hours (15 minutes ago) and now it is indeed showing that its low again! Any idea whats going on?

park it over some clean snow or cardboard so you can narrow it down. i think a long time ago i had an oil leak on my 3800 bonnie, maybe at the oil pressure sensor if i remember right.

Default update

Drove 35ish miles yesterday, and parked it over some snow. I didn't check the snow before, but it looks like these little brownish dots in the snow/ice that I found after moving it back, seems to be oil.
