Hey Y'all,

Picked up an 03 element,136xxx miles EX 4WD 5spd.
I'm stoked that it's a manual transmission, and 4WD.
I purchased it from a friend of mine who was the original owner.
It's that sand colored metallic color with the brown plastic panels.

It's got a bit of a hesitation occasionally on acceleration that i have to get to the bottom of...

Don't mind the other inmates, *coughJojocough* they can tend to nip and growl a bit but rest assured they're all up to date on their shots.
Quite right. The only you DO have to mind is Twi.. and well, pretty much everybody! :grin:

Pictures or you're a tease!

if you dont wa**** it will look just like a cargo kahki !!!! so welcome to the wonderful world of Everything you ever wanted to know about your E. try running some bg or lucas fuel system cleaner through it first. has it had the spark bolts changed? what about the oxyegen filter, it's got to breathe. try preimum gass one time or two.but you will get your butt chewed for it by the gass gods. :shock::twisted: good luck & where are the fudge brownies ?

Northern Cali Welcomes...!!!

Hey DG...!

May she give you many years of service and enjoyment... I'm sure if you post your question on the "pick-up" in the right section, you'll be able to figure it out... I'm not sure exactly where'd it go but I'm sure someone here will chime in...

turns out, the previous owner never did a valve adjustment...
so i went in there and got my hands dirty. the #1 exhaust valves were at .000!
and all the others were way outta spec.
did an oil and filter change, and gave the goat and ol' fashioned Italian tune up, seems to run just fine, now:)
