I second that, what do you mean "cracks"??? Do you mean like when they dry rot? If that was the case, then the shop who sold them to you was total scum, the tires were probably years and years and years old.

Did they reimburse you for the busted wheels and those ultra special super turbo dry rotted brand new tires?

thats pretty messed up man! selling you rotted tires...

when i was first calling around looking for prices on the distributer, they were offering cast iron, and steel gear distributers. i checked the one i pulled and it was cast iron, so thats what i went with...

That's insane. They're lucky the only thing needing replacement was a wheel, and not a whole car, or worse. That's definately a sign of a bad business.

I waited another hour and it started back up! made it about 20 feet and it died... Tow truck took me home once i got home i went to napa and picked up a coil, put it in and the car started and ran for about an hour b4 it died... ok... now im getting pissed!!! i called my local shop and they said it was the ignition module... i went ahead and got a new one and installed that yesterday... car idles and runs smooth as ever now, but is still dead after an hour... wth could be going on?!?! im stumped now the car is getting gas... it runs when cool but not hot... what could it be!?!? HELP!!
Check out my reply on 8/5 to "sick child-re:won't start when hot". Don't spend any more money like I did until you try this less-than-an-hour-at-no-cost possibility. Worked for me big time!!

It was the hall effect sensor.... i already fixed it /w a new distributer... on that note, i would recoment replacing that thermostat with a new one... its probably not a great idea to leave it out...
