Snow has already flown, so you might want to jump on that.

I'm still not sure if I'm coming yet, been trying to figure out why my car is stumbling when cruising and stalling when stopping... Tom is helping me figure it out and it might be tune related, but i think it might be a fuel or air issue... So if its running better by then I'll try to make it. Otherwise I want to hit up a yard soon to get some stuff, and Saturday's are the only open days for me, but maybe I/we could do that before the meet though.

On my ZTS I had a random stumble at cruising speed and no CEL but the automatic transaxle light would come on But the car was a manual..... Couple months later the dealer suggested I replace the MAF. Never had that stumble again. But my car wasn't in for that, it was in for a loss of power at higher RPM. That turned out to be a rag got sucked into the snorkel that terminates to the front of the grill.....that was NOT me. So I replaced the MAF to try and fix one issue and it resolved another. I think a different shop got the rag stuck in there during an oil change. Set it down on the front right by the snorkel and turned the car on and sucked the rag up into the snorkel.

But I wasn't stalling when I stopped. All I know is replacing the MAF resolved the light and stumble for the rest of my ownership.
