Actually when flushing the brake system and switching to blue made it easy to tell when all of the old was out. On the next flush, switch back to gold and you know when the flush is complete.

You really don't want to get caught speeding on the Parkway; it's a Federal offense not State.

I would be proactive and replace all the coils, if one is bad the others are probably not far behind. I would get pricing from an Indy shop before committing though.

Plugged catalytic converters? Block under the accelerator? pinched fuel delivery line? Weak leg muscles? Only a mechanic can diagnose this problem for sure.

I would return it and ask for an undamaged replacement. Since the part number is illegible you can't verify that you have the right part.

I would ask for service records and have an independent inspection done. A lower price doesn't necessarily mean a better value. Service is extremely important on these cars.
