Quote: So I gotta ask, what did happen to the new shortbus?
It is sitting in my driveway...fortunately did not get crushed by a falling tree last night (we had a severe thunderstorm roll through about 4AM, lotsa power out). It took me home 18 hours while running most of the time on 5 cylinders. BTW, it easily held 70mph even uphills in this condition. I suspect some sort of ignition problem, because it is intermittent. If valvetrain damage had occured, I assume it would be constant. So, I am going to change plugs and wires for starters and see what happens...other than that it is in great shape...a little corrosion here and there, but the 109K miles appears to be entirely legitimate, based on the receipts and state inspection forms in the glovebox.
