Think about it.

How could a drivers door have anything to do with an engine? Your engine is usually fail safe. And even if the computer fails, you still have a limp home mode.

This is a tough one. You should be doing better than that. Low to mid 30's if anything. Was it getting better mileage before? Or is this the first time you checked it? How did you come up with...

That one is usually a dirty MAF sensor. You MIGHT have fixed it. You'll know soon.

If it comes back, it most likely needs replaced $$$$. I doubt the ECM has anything to do with it. All the ECM...

This is only part of it though.

You still have to re-calibrate after you change wheel size too. This will also affect your miles per gallon.

In short, what you have to do is start the distance...

Who told you P1010 was the MAF sensor?

If I'm not mistaken, that code is for the VVT system. Usually when you get that one, you and your (empty) wallet will go hand in hand.

Actually, I think...

Good question!!!!!

If he did, I would guess something in the front end and not the tranny. Add the fact he felt it in the wheel and pedals and not the seat, my guess is the axle, or the CV joint,...

Had to replace the entire original exhaust system, including the cat, on my xB today because of just a tiny hole in the pipe. It has 58,000 on it.

Keep us updated on what the problem was.

With me, it was the oxygen sensor #2, or the one in the back. I replaced it myself, the lights never came back on, and the total cost was about $90.

Yup, that's the correct number. You can either replace just the wiper rubber, or the whole arm assembly if you break it. Just like I did also when I was washing my car on day !!

Drive 80 here in PA, and get caught, it'll cost a little more than $350.

Mileage won't matter much then.

Anyways, anything above 70, mileage drops bad.

Once the original factory windshield is replaced, it seem like the cracking problems disappear.

The after-market, replacement windshields are much stronger.

Good troubleshooting job!
