Manifold repair. Vacuum leak, decided not to fix. Replace heater hose
Replaced cracked coolant reservoir. Repaired loosened heat shield over exhaust system. Rivets broken. Tapped new holes & reattached the shield.
Intermittent problem, seemingly only in warm weather, when the car jerks and won't accelerate similar to having bad gas. Questionable problem with fuel pump or filter. Opted to drive until it HAS to be fixed.
