I call this one Snake Eyes. It constantly has something wrong with it. Since I finally figured how to reduce the image size I will post a picture of my 5 speed.
This one is an auto. My wife drives it, it has no guts but I don't mind driving it, I am older and if it were not for the less fuel economy I would be driving an auto.

Pray tell, what is constantly wrong with it?
What can possibly go wrong?

.
I can relate....
I've owned cars I swear were posessed and will admit replaced everthing within the car to make it right in the end ...and not proud to admit it the only thing that fixed that car was a sharp sawall and extra blades
drivetrain went in another car .. ran well
complete wiring harness from front to back complete..and that car ran well
that car had bad Jue-jue..even to this day I still have a few parts(peices) left and swear it hates me taunts me ..
sometimes you just got to know when to say enough and move on
.
Loss of power por fuel economy ..? what plugs your running and whats the gap
Plugged air filter
Plugged exhaust
dirty TB injector
.
.......jv&s

Dunno about the side panels, still researching, I have only see one yellow one on the net with similar. The work is almost perfect. Paint is nearly flawless, won't last long cause it is my Wife's ride, Seats and interior great, weather stripping sucks. I I have a few more pictures in the tablet. I will post a few more. I drive a 93 Vert 5 speed. The paint is 2 years old, the clear coat is already peeling. I will post pictures of it too.

NGK plugs, gapped 40 TB cleaned, exhaust is almost new. Probably is running as hard as an anemic auto should.

Mostly minor issues..Starter solenoid jammed plunger melted stranded me 150 miles from home, Tow Dolly home. Battery failed cell died, 50 miles from home jumper pack saved me. Leaky transmission lines on engine, corrected that. Running too hot for my likes, 198 at thermos housing. New Thermostat 180 New radiator now runs at 182 degrees at the thermostat housing. Checked with non contact thermometer. Now has transmission weep on lower Radiator coolant line, will not stop no matter how tight fitting is torque. Tire threw a wheel weight, front end started vibrating at 50 mph, rebalance, forty bucks shot, windshield wiper blew off in the rain on the interstate, wife tied a Kotex to the arm to keep from scratching the windshield. Still it embarrassed me to have a sanitary napkin on my windshield. Sounds like the fuel pump may be getting noisy, did the fuel filter relocation thing, found a leaking fuel line that I needed Houdini to replace. I still stink of gas. Front left bumper clip fell off, will have to remove plastic fender well to get to it. Windshield washer pump leaks when it feels like it. Front bumper near park lights separating double sided tape has failed. Need to remove entire front bumper cover to glue it back. Dash buttons and heater buttons popping off. Some moron put push button start under dash, I cannot find firewall wires to put a relay fix on it. Left window is getting stiff to roll up. That is this weeks problems, stay tuned for next weeks carnage.
