    That's too bad. Atleast you'll have more driving experience with your parents.

    i bet it needs a o2 sensor. a lot of times when they are failing the ecu doesn't realize its getting a bad reading it just thinks that the car is running a bit lean and dumps more fuel. also when u do that just do a tune up . spark plugs start fouling a lot quicker when fuel is dump all over them. i have had the problem with 2 cars and gained 10-15mpg each time i changed a o2 sensor and did a tune up.

    That's partly what I was thinking. I've done a tune up right when I got the car. Just changed timing belt and water pump. Mechanic said that the spark plugs were fine

    True... atleast the car doesn't require a wideband o2

    I'll figure out what kind I should put in when I get done with my AP tests (may 6th).
