Default New member

Hello, I'm new. I have a 97SE. I love my car. Paid for. I've now had to start doing some work on it. None do to cars fault. Had it towed because of a bad battery and the tow truck drive fastened it down by the tie rod and bent it. Had that straitened and noe that is fine. Leaking antifreeze took it in this morning hope it is nothing major. Check engine light came on seemed to not be gettig enough gas. Hesitating. Needs a tune up bad.

Welcome to the club!

We need pics!

Sounds like you may be experiencing the dreadful upper intake/lower intake gasket failure. Read the TechInfo articles regarding it.

Yikes. If that'* true, drain that oil immediately.

Your coolant level and spark plugs should tell the story. Good luck, and welcome to the Club!
