I have recently replaced the following

camshaft sensor
crankshaft position sensor
factory spark plugs and wires
valve cover gasket
oil change
tomorrow im going to see if i can get my serpentine belt replaced...


any one know whats going on? Ill try checking out the thing that the spark plugs plug into? the coil pack thingy? maybe its cracked or something idk

Thanks


someone please help thanks
You could try replacing the O2 sensors. I once knew someone with a truck that had the same problem. Is your engine light on? If it's on then just take it to advance auto parts and have them hook a computer up to it and read the code. I'm not exactly sure why an O2 sensor would cause this as I'm not a mechanic but it seems like it might at least be worth checking out.

You might want to ask for a second opinion here: http://www.2carpros.com/index.htm I've had good luck with that site.

Even if the CE light isnt on, take it to a code reader.

I'm going to Italy with my dad this spring break, and we planned a two day excursion to Sant'Agata Bolognese and the Lamborghini factory.

I can't wait for it.
