Question Asked: Slow Pick up
March 07, 2009, 07:56 AM
In winter I do warm up the car once in a day usually mornings. However it is restarted after couple of hours but in temp of 30-35 degrees, its pick up and running is so that slow I just drive at speed of 20-25 so as not to pump gas more to obtain pickup / speed. It has good running once speed reached 40
I have changed spark plugs myself before 4 months assuming that might help. My weekday commute is less may be 8-10 miles. total of weekends it could be 50-65 miles or more
I keep feeling that I need some kind of engine inspection & repairs. Can you please revert with your suggestion and also recommendation on good repair shops around my zip code
Thanks for time and consideration
