Welcome.

I recommend Luke's Automotive, which is just off Sinclair Road between Morse & 161. A buddy of mine is the shop manager there. They do good work.

Metalcrack Dang cold weather. Anything below 20 and my sub doesn't want to work. Literally frozen and super hard to move (pushing the middle of the cone).

Not sure the exact measurement but I would say at least 75% left, they're all seasons I only used in the winter months. They're two different brand tires, two sumitomo and two tiger paws. They have equal wear because they where all put on brand new at the same time, just got a deal on a pair and needed two more to go with them. I'm going to snap pics tomorrow Ill pm them to you if ya want

2) Are there any stiffer springs (I don't really want to lower it per-se but do want some stiffer springs)

3) My wagon is an auto and has so far gotten 20mpg...that is worse than the car I am replacing. According to fuelly the focus should get better than that...I don't have any Dash lights, could it be O2 sensors?

4) Anyone have any newer 16" wheels for sale in the Ohio area?

Thanks guys!
Welcome to the forum!

1)Can't recommend and shops in columbus area but expert automotive in Northridgeville did good work for me.

2)Frpp springs are pretty stiff I heard, but they drop it around an inch I think

3)Try cleaning MAF sensor(mass air flow sensor), new air filter, fresh spark plugs and new wires couldnt hurt either.

4) PM me, I might have a set of six spoke 16" zts wheels and tires up for grabs if the buyer for my car comes through as planned

I've been trying to track down this annoying misfire at low rpm which gives no engine codes.
Might need to clean the IAC valve . Mine acted up it idled high or low before cleaning it.
