I know I dont have a V8 n00b, Ive had this car for A YEAR AND A HALF! It didn't used to do this, but its starting to now. An this is up the same hills I used to actually pull on.. Theyre not that big of hills. I've only owned 1 V8 and this is years ago.. I had a Honda Accord before this car. I'm trying to find out what is wrong with my car, I'm not trying to be criticized by someone whos car has barely been broken in.
