XXL Posted November 26, 2019 Report Share Posted November 26, 2019 Relocated to Eugene, Oregon last week... following SO's job. My 520 is my daily driver (though I don't get out a whole lot), and the hills in south end of town where we now live are killers. I've had a slight miss at idle for a while, but didn't have the energy to chase it down. Now a good tune-up is going to be a necessity. May just be a weak plug or bad plug wire... but I would have expected if either of those were breaking down, it'd be worse at speed, but I drove to Cottage Grove and back yesterday and it ran down the highway at 68-ish fine. Any suggestions on top-notch shops around here that could take a look at it? I also have the beginnings of what sounds like an exhaust leak... maybe at the downpipe connection, and rear brake shoes are due for replacement and adjustment, I have a stash of spare parts for most of that stuff, but my garage is stacked to the ceiling after the move... our home goods just arrived a couple of days ago and movers just piled everything without paying attention. Even after get it all sorted out, I'm old and crusty and have limited ability to climb around cars to work on them like I used to. Any pointers are appreciated. Quote Link to comment
