I hope its that simple ...i will get that done asap

Discount Tire will do it for free if you bought your tires from them. Sometimes though you will get lucky if you bought some tires from them a long time ago, even for a different car, and they will do it for free. I used to get free tire rotations for my Xterra because we bought tires for our Altima from them...worked a couple times and then they noticed.

I have some older WRX rims ('03 maybe) with winter tires on them that I picked up from craigslist that I am using. They have weights on them so I am just going to throw them on and see how balanced they are. A guy I know at Discount Tire said it would be $60 to balance them, but he might be able to get me a deal....$60 sounds like a lot just to balance them.

I had my local Discount dismount, patch leaks, new valve stems, remount, and then balance, all for free. I won't go to Belle because they charged me 15 to do the same for one tire.

Not sure how you were able to swing that without having purchased something from them in the past.

It is stumbling during idle and if you even hit the accelerator it's real pissed. It ended up throwing a P0261 CEL once, which is Fuel Injector 1 Circuit Low Voltage. However it has never came back on and I have since tested the Wiring Harness for all Injectors and that 2 of 4 Injectors for their Resistance and came back fine. Going to pull all the injectors test the other 2 injectors for Resistance and then send them out to WitchHunter for Cleaning and Flow Testing.

I have a feeling that my injectors gummed up because I hardly drive it and when I did, it was very short trips. Didn't do enough AutoX and drive far enough to keep my Injectors clean. The downfalls of running E85 I suppose... I really hope it's just caused by gummed up Injectors.

I have been using this stuff:

When I pulled those crappy 50 injectomatics. They were clean as a whistle except from all the dirt caked up around them from rallyx. Stuff works.

How often do you use it? I will have to make sure I use it in my for now on as it doesn't get run often enough.

Once I get the car back up and running and on E85 I will start using it.
