    Hugh, looks like cat plugged which is causing all kinds of issues 1. heat has melted valve cover gasket 2. Valve seals 3. Possible intake leak or much worse. Not sure how much stuff I'm fixing at once. Cat first see how it runs. I've got all the hubs replaced and brakes on front done. No more lights and it is really Quite now. I'll keep you posted.

    Tightened valve cover seems to fixed it. Just a couple little things now like door handle. Hugh when it was hit did they work on the passenger door?

    That's great to hear! There wasn't any work done to the car post collision. It was just buffed and it was primarily the rear driver side door. Continue to keep me posted!
