>Thank you all for the advice on my post. Well, I finally replaced the
transfer pump which cost me $60 (way cheaper than the main fuel pump!). I
can tell you that it runs better now. Plus, the rough idling also seemed to
disappear. Maybe it's too soon to tell (replaced it yesterday) but hope
that was the fix. Unfortunately, I'm in need of other repairs... I'm not
mechanically inclined but, oil is leaking at the lowest pulley on the
engine. I have to add a quart of oil every 400 or so miles. I've heard
it's the oil seal. Any advice and tips on how to replace it would really
help. The car has 165K miles on it. While at it, I probably need to
replace some or all of the engine mounts. How feasible is it? And I've
been told that my rack and pinion also has a leak. My car is just leaking
everywhere! Thanx in advance...
BTW, can someone tell me why there is oil inside the air flow meter? The
entire plate is almost coated w/ oil (dirty oil). Thanx again...
