Thanks for the reply. I put in new plugs and wires but it made no difference at all. I took it back this morning and they circle talked me and got immediately defensive.
They tried to say that the guy who test drove it before repair said it tried to die as he was pulling it in but I immediately explained that wasnt the case because it ran great when I dropped it off.
Besides that the guy called me after his test drive and explained that my clutch was going out. Now im no mechanic, but if I did a test drive and I couldnt go a block without the car dying and running like there was a vacuum leak then I would have told the customer there was something wrong.
I brought it back this morning and pointed out that the part that goes from the intake manifold to the flex tube isnt connected properly and exhaust was coming out (there is a several millimeter gap that is clearly visable). They told me that it was prob burning off some of the sealant.
The guy then turned up my idle so it wouldn't die and I made it to work. When I got home I could smell something so I opened the hood. The lower part of the exhaust manifold was literally glowing red. Im sure this is causing at least part of the problem, correct?
