Angry installed front bilsteins and plugs.

finally got my front bilsteins installed. Also went ahead and done the plugs. They weren't too hard to change at all, the plugs i mean. But i still seem to have the misfire. I don't understand cause the old plugs looked like s__t. I figured for sure that was the problem. Though i didn't drive too far i think i still felt the miss. I don't know what to do now. I absolutely hate just taking something to the garage and telling them to fix it without having at least an idea of whats wrong. Around here that could cost a man alot of moolah.
On the bright side the bilsteins are great! Later guys.

Re: installed front bilsteins and plugs.

Do you have any warning lights on in the cluster? When was the last time you replaced your air filter?

Re: installed front bilsteins and plugs.

Do the key dance... off on... off on... off on. and then leave on.. should do a dtc scan and read out problem codes.

at one time i had the engine light come on, scanned it , i think it was p2098 or something like that. Which the guy at autozone said could be bad gas, o2 sensors, or exhaust leak. I turned the light off and it hasn't come back on. I changed o2 sensors ran a fuel system cleaner through the brake booster. And yeah grand i got a k+n. I didn't think an exhaust leak could make it miss like that but i guess thats next.

Re: installed front bilsteins and plugs.

Big breakthrough guys. I was looking in the recall list and seen those service things, whatever their called, but there was something in there that sounded just like my problem and said a flash would fix it. I guess i'm gonna have to make a trip to dealer. I don't even know if it's under warranty at all or not. i doubt it. Also, i bought it off my cousin who went to the army and she got it in lexington. would i have to take it to that dealer for warranty work if i had a warranty?

Re: installed front bilsteins and plugs.

you would have had to pay a warranty transfer fee of $150 in order to keep it. i also think it can only be transfered if you buy it at a dealer
