That's what i was going to say, could be a limiter. Most (hell, all) aftermarket chips will not only improve performance via various ratios but remove any stupid-ass governors like that. Example, it removes the RPM limiter on my dads dodge ram, which limits it to 3k when it's in park. Pointless unless whoever owns it likes to rev to redline and hold it there, in which case they shouldn't own a car in the first place...
Yeah, probably created to cover their asses if something happens.
Anyways, it depends on how bad the sensor is.
Have you done any road trips through mountainous regions recently? Those can throw them off for a bit, but nothing serious happens.
Now, what can happen is that with a malfunctioning O2 sensor, your car will start pumping too little or too much fuel. This will hurt performance and just as badly, your fuel economy.
O2 Sensors is one of those things you should fix right away if you care about performance and/or fuel economy. It's pretty important. It's not dire to replace it, but it'll only help your performance and fuel economy, and it costs under $200 with labour. You can pick one up
for under $100 IIRC.
Depending on the car you can pick one up for 10-20 bucks and install it yourself in 5 minutes if you have basic knowledge on plugging and screwing things in. At least that's the case with mine..
Yeah, had i of known what it was i wouldn't of pushed the car that hard for that long. It was literally 5 hours of constant WOT and sprinting through gears. Woops. However, that would most certainly explain why i was using more fuel than it should of, and why the car was so slow.
Some guy was taking photos of every car that drove into the drag strip, woo (went to watch, not to race)
Finally got a chance to take some pics of my car. It's a little dirty especially the rims but whatever
(didn't even notice my finger woops)
They are rare.
Silly Civic Van.
I saw one driving directly towards me, and i thought it looked just like my car but different somehow, and that's when it turned and i was able to see it was the si. I never noticed how similarly styled the front end is to my 04 civic.
Yeah nearly identical in a strange way :O
someone crashed directly into one of my wheels the other week (brand new at the time) and its pushed my wheel around a bit, I measured the wheelbase and its 5mm shorter on the damaged side than the undamaged side. I took the wheel off and couldn't see anything damaged snapped or broken... But thats for another thread lol
Europe has more of what I like. I like lightweight cars with low displacement engines(like 2.2l).
yippee ki yay motherfucker!
The majestic Seearviticus Brotisticus fondles the comanche, dreaming of a better 4x4.
Not a pic of the car but I got this for the 'vette today
I take it their quite often, its about 30 minutes away and has a fuckhueg mud puddle, if you couldn't tell
Yesterday i also went in a state forest, Jeep does not give a shit bout sugarsand.
this shit's big so clickit if you want
Civic chillin with the 'vette.
can i fuck your car
many of us, including myself, would kill for that thing.
christ that looks so futuristic. I WANT IT.
what are those rims called?
I have a set that look exactly like it except it has AZEV on the inner rim, not sure if knockoff or not.
That interior looks insanely good. I wish i was surrounded by leather in my car.
