Smile Runing on two Cylinder

On Saturday after a friends birthday party I was heading over to a friends house in Foster City this must have been 3:30AM. When I started to notice that my car started to bog. Thinking that I am running low on gas because my gas gauge does not work properly I fill up at the next possible gas station. Getting back on the road the car all of the sudden looses power and a check engine light starts to blink. Thinking this is the end for my RS engine I pull over to the side of the road and call my friend Daniel to see what should I do. As soon as the call went out that my car is on the side of the road. Bryan and Jen went to pick up keys to open up Auto HQ and Vincent got us all drinks. My car got towed to the shop, and within minutes it was fixed. All in all I had a very positive experience and if it was not for the guys at Auto HQ my car would be on the side of the road. In this case it was an easy fix because the injector was not seeded in correctly. It could have granaded my motor forcing me to upgrade which I was not ready to do yet. Night and Day Rain or Shine these guys will help with anything that needs to be fixed.

Thanks again to Auto HQ

i didnt get to the russians car till about 3:30, the tow truck got there shortly after, and followed me to ahq. it was one of those times where we all happened to be around and awake so it worked out well. i am still impressed with ahq when they do nice things for the community like this.
