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.:mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad: :mad::mad::mad:

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

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.

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?

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
