View Full Version : Hmm, What's going on?

Lately, my car has been a LOT slower. I'm not a mechanic wizard, so I have no clue what's going on, but when I floor it, it just seems way slower. I really don't want to go to a mechanic if someone can tell me what it is. Thanks!

Dirty air filter?

could be numerous things.

bad gas
do u change oil frequently
change fluids
spark plugs

little things like that make a difference.

What kind of mileage are you looking at?

If you havent arleady id get the fuel filter changed and possibly the injectors cleaned professionally by a mechanic. The autozone fuel cleaners are what you stay away from.
Wouldnt help to get a tune up and change the spark plugs and wires either.

upgrade to a k&n drop in filter, or get a CAI or WAI or just get a new stock air filter.
