alright.. ill check tire inflation and change air filter,.. do you recommed those air filters that they sell on ebay ?? , you know, the high flow ones ...., or is it just crap it wont give me any more milage or horse power ??
i tried a piece i bought on ebay you put it in the air intake sensor plug , it should give more power... but my car lost power after i used it..lol..
how can i get more power without changing or adding major things like turbo ??
though i would love to turbo charge it.....
---- the gas milage if my car would go faster......, but low gas milage with no speed !?... i dont like that...
any ideas please about gaining horse power, in other words, a better accelaration...??

Remove that "chip" from ebay I have seen one of those before on a car that was brought to me to work on.It will hurt mileage and provide little to know benefit.Get a new O2 sensor fuel filter and if you want a few more horse power and a little better mileage get a free flowing exhaust from a local shop and free up the air intake system with either a air intake or just a K&N filter.

How long are your trips? 2min or 2 hrs? Short trips kill gas milage.

Stop driving like a ricer (if you are) and doing 6500+rpm shifts.

Free flowing will help, but your issue is deper then that.

What car is it?

Platnum PLugs aren't always the best.
