Default had to take my ride to the car doc!!

my SS was acting up so i decided to take it to a great local mechanic to get it checked out,,the car hesitated at low RPMs, and had a horrible exhaust leak up front,,, well after dropping it off to him, he checked it out, the EGR valve it was stuck open, the Crank sensor was bad, and the manifold bolts were loose,,,so he fixed the manifold and ordered the other parts,,hopefully the car should run better now. i also thought that maybe the plugs and wires maybe needed changed but he said that the machine he hooked the car up to would show if they were bad or not,,,luckily they werent.

if you had a intake/exhaust leak this could be a very big contributing factor to why the car wasnt running so hot anyway
