    Angry Need help!!!!

    I live in North East MD , and was looking for some who really knows how to work on these cars , that live in this area no more than 20 miles away . I have a few problems that need some attention . The car does not idle good and it also has been sitting for a year and needs to be emissions tested in 3 months.

    Might want to add some injector cleaner with a good tank of fuel. Then maybe some plugs and go from there. Fuel does go bad from sitting a long time...

    Like Bill said, run some fuel system cleaner through your engine. Take it for a long drive (empty the tank) and then add some more cleaner to the fresh fuel. If that doesn't fix it, then change out your spark plugs and wires.

    also, after you run the old tank out you might want to replace the fuel filter

    Thanks for your help I will get this done and check it out see what happens I hope this does the trick. I have added a few things to the engine in the past and I hope they didn't hurt the performance of the car. I have a MAF Granatelli , Lt Headers, O2sims , Borla exhaust, Ram air intake system and a computer programer. So does anyone think that something else that I put on my car may not be working right. Again thanks for any help or ideas.

    I'd unplug the MAF and see how the car runs....if its not calibrated it can make you go super rich or dangerously lean.
    what programer are you using?

    everything cost around $200, I did all the body work and paint myself.

    the hypertech programmer shouldn't cause any drivabilty problems.
