I hate my car. I really, really hate my car. It's not the EGR valve, at least not entirely. I set another pending code, which only cleared this morning with the reintroduction of premium fuel. It's not the plugs, they're fine. Good thing, too, as the dealership wants $7/pc for the _stock_ plugs, and I paid $8/pc for the spiff-ass Iridium ones in there now. I'm thinking I'll just ignore it and run midgrade fuel. Also, my AC blower resistor pack is burnt out again. Same problem, I have five fan speeds available on my air conditioning. Those speeds would be nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing, and "can't open my eyes lest they immediately dry out and crust over". I know where it is now, and can do it myself, it's just that it takes contorionist skills to remove. That, and the part is $15. I called multiple dealerships, only one would admit that there's a problem. Of course, there's no fix. I'm thinking I might just make my own fix in the form of a big-ass case fan in there, splice it in to the 12 volt rail. Of course, this would entail disconnecting the batery again. And cutting in to thin jacketing on small-gague wire without severing it. Whee. I guess I'll be doing that instead of replacing my spark plugs tonight.
