Re: Poor Coupe Mileage

Hey All,

    They changed the spark plugs ( I checked), the air filters, fuel
filters, adjusted air/fuel.  Where would I check the sensors, and how would
I check the vacume leaks.  The mileage has always been like this, but I just
bought the car about 2 months ago.  The cat has had trouble, but it is

Thanks for all the help
and thanks for any mor in advance
