engine was chugging; got worse and engine light came on; mechanic said computer said coil 1 misfiring, replaced coil 1 and 6 spark plug (expensive plugs); still chugged a little; chugging getting progressively worse; tried gas treatment, and then seafoam too, but no effect; no engine light but chugging getting worse and now happening almost all the time; mechanic is stymied cuz computer reads no problems.
Took door panel off today 2/1/2014 tested power to motor apon pressing up/down switch the power would come on 1/2 a second and off. I could hear and clicking from under the dash pulled lower panel and side panel to see there is no window relays like I thought. Just this black box mounted behind that panel and I think the clicking is coming from this. The pass window works great. Any suggestions??
