I have a 2004 mustang gt with only 90k miles great condition but im having a idling problem. I replaced Throttle-body, MAF, IAC, EGR, Coils, Splugs, all new vacuum lines and clamped to rule out leaks, Think it might be electrical its now is spring so when i crank blowmotor up idle goes wacko ( even with AC off) Goes from 800rpm to 1250rpm slowly drops to 800 then jumps back up to 1250 and repeats. Car only requires a 550cca battery but I ran a 900cca truck battery to test but still does it.Ideas?

Hey Scotty! Coming from Balkan region, what do you think are the most reliable new cars and cheapest to maintain? We have lots of VWs here but I am not sure about Toyotas. Are there any naturally aspirated engines left in the 1.6-2.0L range left? Thanks!

Hey Scotty, I was wondering when I should change the engine oil on my 2014 vw jetta s? Last time I changed it was when it had 59061 miles now it has 65270 miles, I use it for going to school which is an hour drive everyday from my home.

Hi Scotty I bought a 2005 Mazda 6 wagon a year ago for 2600 ever since I’ve been having to repair something on the car. There’s a laundry list and I’m tired of putting money into it. I’ve put about 600 to 700 dollars into it. Is it time to sell or just junk it?

Hi Scotty I have a 2013 mazda 3 6 speed manual that has a shaking issue only at 2100 RPMS it only shakes bad when at a stand still but i can still feel the engine is rough when driving. It does get a little better when driving around after a while but whem in gear going down a hill I get a lot of vibration. My mechanic said it could be a weight issue but said to live with it. Not my style to do so and would love a solution to this problem! Thanks Jesse
