Felt an ever so brief 'stutter' whilst cruising with the family yesterday
(read: transient throttle stutter upon tipping in from loafing speed to
semi-loafing speed). Very slight yet still noticeable...
stutterstutterstutter... happened 2-3x when nearly off the gas completely,
maybe just tipping into it. Drives / starts / idles fine otherwise since.
My question: did any of you who've had coils / POSs fail experience a
'fart' such as this prior to the imminent failure? Trying to prepare myself
for the inevitable. Dodged this 100% failure bullet for 132k, was only a
matter of time. Only to have the wife say "you should have bought <coil /
POS> in advance of a failure instead of those stupid Xe's last month"...
d'oh. Running out of responses to those bulletbombs yes I am...
Would like to be ready for when it ultimately F's the pooch altogether.
Plugs / boots / fuel filter / FPR all < 20k. Watch it give up the ghost
while I'm @ beach in NH for 2 weeks & @ the drags, will be typical. NH /
Maine lister-residents be warned heh heh... may beg for help...
