Vanilla Forums has been nominated for a second time in the CMS Critic "Critic's Choice" awards, and we need your vote! Read more here, and then do the thing (please).
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I really hope I don't make a habit of posting these threads. Okay, so my car is having an issue with power. When it first starts up and is running in low gear, it kind of chugs along; once I get into second gear and start going on flat ground or downhill it runs normally. However, once I start going uphill, the chugging gets worse than ever on a flat surface. There's also a smell of burning oil and sometimes a rattling noise. First thing I did last night was check the oil, dipstick showed me as being low, so I added 3/4 of a quart, but that didn't do anything. Neither did removing the filter and hitting some of the dust and stuff out of there. I'm going to change the oil later today, along with the air filter, and if neither of those work I'm taking it in to a mechanic (which I'd have to do anyway, it's almost at the 100K mark) within the next few days.
So, until then, what do you fine fellows think the problem might be? The car in question is a '99 VW Jetta with a 2L engine.
heres how i see it being a total win situation for you
1. stay with your wife while she dog sits. this wins husband points since she knows its out of your comfort zone
2. have sex all over her friends house so that the next time you see her friend look at you condescendingly, you can wink back knowing you did the freaky deaky where she eats her cheerios.
