Could be, the people I got it from were the second owners. They got it at 30K off a lease. Said it was never in an accident. Ok...then why is the pass fender a different color of green inside the hood? Why was there over spray on the turn signal light bulb? Hmmmm

Besides the stupid Phelum however the H*** its spelled or pronounced have you had any major problems with your car?

Do you use additives or have any special tips?

I try to keep my car under 2000 RPM at all times so I drive 55-60

Slow but I want my car too last.

Off topic in my own topic I know
wow, its like...impossible to keep a */c engine under 2000rpms.....{well, with me it is anyway} unless u go really...really slow {like i do when the engine is warming up} even then i try to keep it under 2500rpms....which is normailly what i shift at....unless its a day when i'm late for work/playing around...then its 3000-3500....sometimes 4000rpms....i'm almost @ 150,000miles and still runnin' strong...

At 65 its right under 2000

If I have work early when no ones out ill go 55 and its about 1700 RPMs

It pays off, especially since gas is so expwnsive

well for the insolation part of this thread.. I'm pretty sure that it is either a heat sheild and sound deadner or just a sound deadner, depending on the type your car has.

On ours it'* just for sound.

But on some other cars if you pull down the cover and look on the back of it, it has foil like stuff on there for heat. I'm pretty sure that even when the foil crap is on there it isnt for warming up or paint protection, its so the heat is forced out of the engine compartment rather than heating things up and traping heat. Ive noticed that cars with less room in the bay have the foil stuff on them, as if to help in cooling efforts.(ie: I know the lt1 camaro'* have it and engine compartment room is at a minimum for sure.)
