Well, it's about that time again...time for an oil change. I'm about 500 overdue now. I thought since it's gonna be there anyway, it might as well get fixed! Right now I'm looking at a loose shifter (bushings, maybe?), possible MAS, and defnitely a thermostat. I'm hoping this is all. This stuff kinda nerve racks me, cause Iknow the bigger problems are coming. I'll let y'all know how it goes.

Most of those things you listed you can do your self save have a few hundred bucks..like MAS and Thermostat. Dealer will charge you alot for a 5 min job.

I ended up having to get rear brake pads too. But they were unable to duplicate the thermostat problem:rolleyes: and the rough idling, so I have to take it by there and show it to them when it happens :rolleyes: But it does run a little better and my shifter shifts crisp into Drive now.
