I know, but I'm trying to remain positive to get me through the next week and a half. I've been driving like this for the past 2 months or so, and now that I know what the problem is she'll probably let me down. I'm going to go online tonight and buy the pieces I need, so I don't have to wait for the Doctor to confirm the prognosis, and then tell me it will take a couple days to get the parts. Just need to figure out what all is needed. Since it looks like the manifold needs to come off I'm also thinking about the CCV, although I don't have any symptoms and it seems to fail more in cold weather climates. Might as well, right?
