If your car is in good tune (plugs, wires, timing, idle adjustment, fuel filter, air filter), it could be a faulty oxygen sensor.

It probally is the o2 sensor..If your so close to giving up, just do and get a b14. Just my 2 cents, but if you love your car just stick with it and get a nice tune up :cheers:

I agree with Tdizzle. If I gave up on my car, I wouldn't have learned so much from it and others in this forum. If you really want to stick w/your ride, just make the necessary tune-ups and don't be scared to ask ?????. Yeah there are some cats in here who will jump down your throat, but that's about 1% of the forum...the rest will definitely help you. Good luck

OR you can go with plan B....get a b14 :cool: :cheers: :thumbup:

No problem...a lot of us don't have much $$$$ to spend on our rides...so we do the next best thing and do cheap mods that will improve performance. Search the forum and find them, they're all ova.
