History
Bought the Car May 14, 2015 for $500. The engine is lacking power, hesitating on acceleration, backfiring, and surging. Steering wheel and brake pedal vibrating due to worn-out rotors. Gas is leaking from the tank or filler neck. Found out the previous owner swapped the the 2.5 L (EJ25) engine for a 2.0 L SOHC (EJ20), but never changed the engine control module. I Changed the spark plugs, and now the engine is running a lot smoother... no more hesitation, but still backfires sometimes and power is still lacking, especially going up hill. The probable cause is the low output engine with sensory problems in a big car does not work well. My plans are to changed the motor, and ECM for something more powerful...
