My vehicle is California emissions and after hours of research . I saw that I had to buy a California exhaust system to fit my car which I have from rockauto. Now I see that the cat converter has no port hole for my already there air sensor plug to install into. My old cat converter had a port hole just past the cat.heading towards the muffler. I can't understand what's going on. ? Either I have the wrong cat or my exhaust system was modified ?? I don't know and can't tell? Thank you kindly tony

I was told I needed to replace my intake gasket. Very bad oil leak.

Can unlock passenger door then unlock the automatic locking system

When I drive my brothers Buick after starting engine I put it in reverse and sometimes it acts like there's a power delay because it will all the sudden get all the power it didn't get at first and then I have to put it in 1st to get going and then shift on the fly to 3rd for cruising speed and do that at every red light or near stop. If I put it in D (overdrive) it doesn't idle or cruise like it should. This happens about 70%-75% of the time when it gets drove. It also has a slow oil leak but I'm sure that's not the problem.

Why does the motor rev up till it warms up

The only issue I am having is: it's dripping oil when parked. The oil drippings are fairly small. ( about the size of a QUARTER). I had Intake Manifold replaced by friend of a friend in DEC. of 2012. Any input is greatly appreciated. Thank you,
