Thank you, Barbara! I appreciate it!

jeninga75, Thank goodness for the good news!

I'll bet it wasn't any fun waiting for that good news, though, huh?

That's the part I think is horrible for people....the waiting!

Oh, itís a Geo Storm. Nice car, and very dependable! Did you know that it is actually an Isuzu Impulse? It was built by Isuzu, and then renamed by GM. The body and interior are a bit different, but under that body is the Isuzu frame, engine, transmission, etc. Very good car, sporty look, fun to drive, and pretty quick too!

Weíve got an 2002 Geo Prizm, and before that, we had a 1995 Prizm. Prizms are Toyota Corollas that have been renamed, and they run forever.

I knew about the Storm/Izuzu connection, but I didn't know about the Prizm/Corolla one. Our other car is a 1996 Toyota Corolla. I bought it in 1997 and it is still running great.

It could be the gas or clogged fuel injectors, or even a dirty air filter. A full tune ups (oil, oil filter, air filter, gas treatment, new plugs, rotor cap and button if applicable, etc) is advisable at this point.
i say the idle.

It was when I stopped loving my job that the stress got to me. Of course it was the stress heaped on me by my boss that made me stop loving the job, so I guess it was a vicious circle!

About my car--WooHoo! It was bad gas. James told me we still had a little gas in the gas can, so I added that and the fuel injector and carburetor cleaner and now it runs like a dream!
