    catera doesn't want to start, idles rough

    My catera has been giving me a lot of trouble starting, and it idles rough and is real sluggish when I try to accelerate.
    I took it to the dealer, they said fuel pump, got it replaced but now it's worse, any idea on what it could be?

    Check your valve covers, also you need to check the injectors themselve. Its pretty easy to get to injectors themselves, they sit on the fuel rail/injector tree underneath the plenum. Take the car to autozone and have them put the OBDII code reader in the OBDII port underneath the steering wheel and check the codes. They'll do this free of charge, make sure you write down what the reader itself list on the screen,not what the store employee tells you. the codes that you'll probably get are going to be P0441, P0154, P0114, P0212, or P0211.
    Let me know what you find out. Oh yeah, I have all the codes so don't waste all your time looking for them, I'll be happy to get ya what you need.
