If you want to discuss the issues, I suggest starting a thread for that in the "General Discussion (Second Generation)" sub forum. Be sure to say there what engine it has - it will either be a 2.7 or 3.2/3.5 - and any maintenance history that might relate to the problem. That will save us the trouble of asking. Better yet, add the engine size to your "Car Info" on the "Edit Your Details" page of your control panel (click "User CP button" at near top of page). That info. will show up under your avatar in every post.
