This fucking car.

Always with the random misfire, I think it might be terminal. The only solution I can see is 3.2 Yamaha.

Sounds like your solution would be more than fitting given everything else done with that car.

Replaced the seat cushion heater element. Didn't fix my inop heated seat (common issue as per a TSB for all Gen 5's built before 12/2006) so I've ordered the back rest heater element.

Sam had bad luck with Dorman heater pads.  He said they burned out after a day or so.  I never had that problem with my 09

The TSB was for cars built before December 2007, so yours wouldn't have been affected. Dorman was what all was readily available unfortunately.

Well, the SHO is out of commission for 2 weeks.

While at a car wash on Saturday, it ripped the SHO emblem off the front and beat the side of the car with it. Dents, chips, deep scratches, you name it. Even got the trunk lid and the car behind me before it got dislodged.

The car wash is paying for everything, including the rental up to $60/day.

I found that with my corporate discount I was able to get a 4-Runner for $55/day, so of course I picked that. Imagine my surprise when they told me that the body on frame, 4WD vehicle I had selected had been replaced with "or similar". A 4CYL NA Hyundai Santa Fe Sport.

I'm calling Hertz locations around Cola to see if I can swap with an actual 4-Runner.

Update: No one has a 4-Runner. But I did manage to bag me a Pathfinder! At least that has a V6

Not a fan of the looks of the 4Runner. Sorry about your car though.

I'm actually a little upset. The Pathfinder is better, but its still not a damned 4-Runner.

Well I picked it up from the Transmission shop last night.  All done. So far seems to drive just fine. Transmission wise.

it pulls to left when accelerating. It's straight if coasting or braking. Both front wheels have a little play at 3-9. Gota figure out if tie Rods or lower ball joints. It was too dark and late to check which one last night.  Needs endlinks. Struts and springs seem fine. Same with Control arms, seem fine.

this 2000 Taurus Duratec is NOISY. So much road noise. Guess I forgot what it's like.

Carpets are wet again. Time to go to the local dealer and have them find out what's leaking or what seal is  not working to make this happen. Last time it was the rain hat and silicone fix, but this time it's the driver side as well as the passenger. I'm having nightmares about the whole floor rusting away....:o   Arghhhh

Why are you changing out COP? If it isn't misfiring its fine. Spark plug wires are similar - unless they are arcing out, they are fine.
