    Tune up maybe?

    Alright heres the deal. My t/a has 76000 on it. It seems like its starting to idle just a little rougher than normal. It also seems like it takes a little bit gas when you're letting out on the clutch to keep the car from jerking. Feels like the power just isn't there under 1500rpm, not very noticable at all but something just isn't quite right. I haven't noticed a drop in milage. So I'm guessing its time for a tuneup. I haven't had any problems since I bought the car 2 years ago with 45000 miles. What all should I replace besides the plugs and wires? Just put a new fuel filter on it about 6 months ago. EGR or anything like that? I also was told that if you clean out the EGR then that will smoothen up the idle but Thanks for any help

    I figured something like this would happen. I just bought an 06 yfz 450 for me and a raptor 700 for the g/f. Seems like every time I go out and spend a lot of money on something, something else gets jealous and needs money spent on it too.

    Like ya said...a tune-up can never hurt. Plugs, wires, flush the coolant if you've never done it, clean the TB and IAC with some carb cleaner, change the oil if it's time to.

    I hear ya on the jealous part....if I start ignoring her and don't keep her clean she starts acting like a bitch

    And why is that they're always faster right after you leave the carwash? I guess the dirt adds weight and slows them down. Am I the only one thats noticed this
