I got gas, drove to school and studied in the library. Then drove back home. Car is running as smooth as butter though. Do you guys think my sensors (namely the CKP) couldve been mucked up by the oil shooting out of the cooler line and adapter? Since I've taken that off, the car has been running pretty well. The jolts have all but gone away.

When I left for vacation there was no snow on the ground. We had days near 60 last week. I put the shovels away. I come back, there'* a few inches of snow, and a lot of ice under it. Cars in the ditch, and temps in the teens. The next few days it will be around 32. Winter needs to go away. I get the ins on the Bonneville on April 4th, and I want to drive it.

Eh, we're definitely feeling the effects of climate change. I could elaborate, but the topic is what we did to our cars for the day, not what happens to the pressure systems and warm salty water in the atlantic ocean...

Al Gore has definitely made a bunch of money off of this, and lots of companies have bullcrapped us with cost cutting in the name of being 'green', but I believe our climate is being affected by something, theres a lot of things that it can be blamed on.

How about "normal cyclic events". I.E. the earth wobbles, it'* orbit is not perfect and as a result glaciers descend and recede, temperatures make mad swings throughout the ages, and droughts and floods happen with no rhyme or reason. It'* a huge world, and we aren't a big an influencing factor as some would have us believe. Even the disasters like the Exxon Valdez and the Gulf offshore oil platform, nature is able to overcome and life goes on. Reality is something pushed aside to play on emotions and allow others into the masses wallets. Reality says the American bovine food stock produces more methane, CO2, and hydrogen sulfide than all the autos combined. And that doesn't even account for the byproducts from us turning it into tacos and pizza. ....back to our regularly scheduled thread.
