Now I don't drive hard, but I have no idea how the PO drove.. anyway, I noticed when I fired it up the other night when it was cold I could hear the exhuast while I was leaning in the trunk and it sounded a tad bit rough and I think I could smell a little fuel.. anyway, since then I have replaced the stock plugs which were shot with new Iridiums. The coils look to have been done around 07 because they all had an 07 date (MM/DD/YY) of the same 07 date.. I took the MAF out the other night which looked brand new, but I cleaned it anyway.. any other ideas?? Thanks guys!!
