My truck feels like it's misfiring. It's been idling a little rough for awhile now. No "check engine" light is on. I've changed all my spark plugs and replaced my fuel filter and air filter. I was wondering how to check the boots on the coils? Not sure what else to check myself before bighting the bullet and taking it to the dealer?
IF NO, YOU MAY NEED A "CATCH UP"......NOT A "TUNE UP"
IF YOU CAN PERFORM SOME, IF NOT ALL OF THE TASKS---THIS WILL SAVE YOU $$$
I PROMOTE DIY---AS I AM A DIYer MYSELF (FOR MANY YEARS)
NOW.....ABOUT THE ONLY SHOPS I TAKE STUFF TO ARE "THE ALIGNMENT SHOP"---AND A "AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION SHOP"---AS I DON'T HAVE THE SKILLS/ TOOLS/ OR EXPERIENCE TO DIY THOSE TASKS
I DO KNOW SEVERAL WAYS TO FIND A GOOD, HONEST, COMPETENT SHOP (YOU KNOW, ONE OF THEM THAT YOU THINK OF AS FAMILY AFTER A WHILE)THE STEALERSHIP IS NOT THE ONLY GAME IN TOWN THAT CAN "DO IT RIGHT"SOMETIMES THEY ARE THE ONLY ONES WHO CAN DO THOSE "TRADE SECRET TYPE TASKS", LIKE FLASH A COMPUTER, ETC.
IF YOU WANT, I'LL SHARE A SIMPLE WAY TO FIND "YOUR PERSONAL SHOP"THERE IS JUST A LITTLE EZ LEGWORK INVOLVED, YOU JUST HAVE TO STICK WITH THE PLAN---NOT JUMP ON THE 1ST ONE.
SOMETIMES "YOUR SHOP" DOESN'T MIND "YOU" SUPPLYING THE PARTS---THIS KEEPS THEM FROM SEARCHING (CUTS 'EM OUT OF SOME PARTS MARK-UP). THERE AGAIN, THE TAILORED TO YOU "RIGHT SHOP".....IS YOUR BUDDY!----NOT A LEECH!
SHOULD YOU BE NEEDING SOME PARTSI MAY BE ABLE TO EXPLAIN $40 SAVINGS ON A $100 OR SO PURCHASE---AND OTHER WAYS TO MAKE THIS METHOD SAVE.....I'VE SAVED $160 ON 4 SEPARATE PURCHASES RANGING FROM $102--$135 (EACH PURCHASE), OVER 2 MONTHS TIME
