Default Loss of power and strange surging

Hey all,

On my way home today my 2001 SSEi started surging and seemed to have lost power, I got home and took a picture of the engine compartment, I think I lost a belt or spark plug wire or something, does anyone see anything that might be out of place?

Thanks.



















Haha, just kidding. We are replacing the upper intake and SC gaskets.

Heart surgery on my baby.

I see your problem. The Whatchamahicky came off the Dumblenimbus and got wrapped up in the Flibubator.


Oh, and replace your reciprocating dingle arm. It'* bent.

Your oil cap looks a little loose, other than that, looks good to me

Your coolant elbow might not be making proper contact with the port in the LIM. I'd check into that.
