Default How is my car running? (Pics)

The plugs arent that old, but its been sitting so I changed em anyways. You will see another reason it was a good thing I changed them in a minute. This is the 92 BTW

All of 'em


OMG BOSCH?!?!?!!? NOOO! and more of the plugs


Don't worry, they were replaced with nothing but ACDelco. And I got rid of the old stock wires

And they oxygen sensor. Original for all 129,600 miles. If your is old I highly recommend changing it!!!! It was a easy job with some liquid wrench. My exhaust does NOT smell at all anymore, before it had a little smell to it but now I can't smell it at all even if I stick my face right by the pipe (not recommended lol)

Looks like she was running a little hot and/or lean if my thinking is correct. Running alittle better now?
