The EGR valve and tube do not look very difficult to replace. Together the cost is around $250 if I do it myself. With that said, other reading I've done suggest that if the EGR is the problem I would likely see some idiot lights, poor fuel economy

I just used the Meijer MPerks $5 off and the $5 Pennzoil coupon together for $10 off. I had two Pennzoil Coupons and we have two mperks accounts so I did it twice. Worked like a charm. They didn't have any 5W-30 PP on the shelf so I asked a staffe

I have @3 acres to cut; I have a 42" Dixon ZTR and a 54" Cub Commercial ZTR. Anything that I can't reach with one or the other gets either pruned, soaked with Roundup, or cut down. I cut the grass every 7-10 days, tops. No neighbors within

If you're a cheapskate and poor, you don't want a Saab-story! When I need cheap transportation, I always run to Cavaliers and S-10s. You can probably pick up a Cobalt for cheap now.

Yes, it is highly manufacturer/material dependent. To me, the better quality pads from Raybestos and Wagner feel like they bed in almost instantly. LuK/Ruville recommends 10 firm stops each: 20 to 0 Km/h; followed by 30 to 0 Km/h; then 50 to 0 Km/h
