Important note: wasnt doing this before o2 sensor replaced.

Online so far all I see is:
Bad valves maybe
Bad tune possible
Cheap gauge.

Hey just unplugged MAF. Car died. Then I closed engine and fired her back up. Flutter is completely gone! I believe you must be right. Bad MAF

I am sorry but im not made of money. I sold my car for 4k to buy a less problematic car. Borrowed 2k and dealer screwed me. I have literally had to borrow money from 3 people just to get a new tranny... I was convinced it was well taken care of and tuned properly all the bs. Look... If the problem is a sensor but its a decent car other than someone didnt drive stick well why is everyone so quick to write it off as junk?

maybe its just a junk tune or bad MAF. I cant trade it in or keep throwing mass money at it.. compression was good there arent any knocks when shes warm. No white blue smoke to indicate valves are bad. Why are you all bashing on the car when it could just be a simple fix and a decent motor?



Im going to court shortly. If I win my suit and get a check then ill DEFINITELY consider a trade in! Or ill just drive down to some decent chicago or madison wrx tuner shop and let them play with it to make sure its all good.
