WELL you seemed to have answered your own question , at least partly! You know it's burning to much fuel.........no duh. We can't plug in a scanner online yet , so now this smartass is going to tell you another thing you don't want to here............Get it DIAGNOSED properly , before the damage is more than the car's worth. IF you can get it to someplace like auto zone , that READS codes for free , get the codes and post them--DO NOT BUY PARTS BASED SIMPLY ON A CODE! Guesses easily get more expensive than proper diagnosis , we see that a lot on other posts - ten parts replaced because of 'code' , problem still exists -blah , blah , blah, you get what I mean? I'll always be a smartass , but when I can be a helpful one , it aint so bad.
