clean your o2 sensors, take the intake tube off from the airbox and spray some stuff on the o2 sensor i dont remember what it is called but your FLAPS should have it if you ask

Check the hoses and make sure they all fit snug...

I've run Bosch Platinum's in all my Jeeps and they run great.

x3 on the bosch plugs...good for 50K miles.

Change your fuel and air filter too and a new PCV while you're at it. Toss in a can of injector cleaner to boot.

NGK plugs are probably the best on the market. I ran those in my Trans Am, 350Z, and now Rubicon.

I read somewhere that the stock pliugs available from the dealer were the best.

3 Wheeler!! I havent seen or even heard of one of those in like 8 years!! I thought they banned them, or does PA still say they are ok? I know in WV they banned 'em cause we ended up selling the one from our farm right before you couldnt get them anymore. Damn things are dangerous lol... I saw a 40 year old women that has riden ATVs her whole life, take a normal turn at like 10 mph on a dirt road at our farm and flipped it

Ha ha, yeah they are banned in PA since 1986. You can still get them used however. I've ridden 3 wheelers all my life. You're definitely right though, you HAVE to know what you're doing and always be ready to throw a leg out to stop yourself from biting the big one.

This is mine.
