wow, Sorry to say, but that is SAD to see it being towed by a late 80's caravan..... No respect.... Must have been a long drive home! :lol: ;) :P

Glad to see you got her!

haro, any idea what actually went wrong?

I know what i've heard, but further details would be cool.

95 made it down to kentucky just fine... all 800 miles...

got the 00...damn its a sweet car...

at EXACTLY 666 miles the first problem started...

engine choked going up a hill... tried to kill itself, but i let off the gas and it smoothed out... got off at the next exit... engine was shaking pretty bad, running like a tractor... we drove it around to test some stuff... anytime i gave it some boost it would choke at about 2k..... died several times...

stopped at a gas station, checked over everything, vacuum lines, injectors, maf... could not run right at all...

found one vacuum T that was bad, replaced, nothing different...

was talking to caminated on the phone a lot by this point... we could not figure it out...

i could still keep it up to 75 mph on the highway, but any sort of throttle would choke it...

called my mechanic dad, he said to see if we could make it home...about 150 miles now...

got 2 miles out of town, engine started pinging, like bad!!!!!!... shut er down right away and pulled off... started it one more time to see how it sounded... sounded like the civil war in my moms kitchen full of metal pans...

next time i tried to start it just a click...locked?

dad towed me home....

there is a ton more details but i know ppl are waiting for this post so here goes...
