hi marty, well first i would think of fueling like say injector seals or
check valve but maybe the coolant temp sensor could be faulty or even EVAP,
though im admittedly not the best diagnoser, however i could help you with
your urQ wants,, i was going to list mine soon but if someone is eager id
take $5k yesterday, theres a long story to this car but basically,, its not
my time for a Qcoupe and honestly i would really be cautious of daily use,
not for the car in a mechanical sense but beacause so many other people are
terrible drivers.

PS they like 30 miles a lot more than 3 so if you do go ur-daily find the
long way to work and love every extra minute.
