Guy I'm italian.
I'm tring to speak your language at the best...
My best. Sorry if I don't know all the slang.

I have (use) the car since 1 year in march 2005.
So.. I don't know all about the past!
I guess this filter was never changed!
Now all the noise stopped! :)
It was just a case I changed the Air Filter.
Any suggestion to change some other little things? Money permitting?

You may want to check the actual air filter since clearly the cabin air filter has not been changed in a very long time. You should change the cabin air filter at least once a year though, that will help it from looking like a tree.

Air Filter is ok... but I found a hole in the air intake system!
I'll show you some pic in 10/15 hours since here is late and I have to go to sleep :)

Hey, Cixi, you are doing a heck of a lot better at English/American than most of us would be at trying EYE-talian [:D] Keep up the good work on your ride.

Yeah, plus his English has improved since he's been here [:)]

Good work!

btw: if the filter was this borked, let's hope leaves and stuff like that hasn't been burning inside your cylinders... Now might be a good time to do a through cleanup of the car.

Actually, I'm wondering if any of those additives you can put in your gas tank, that supposedly clean up the engine, actually work? Anyone know about this?

I know someone who sells a product called Energie 3000 (or was it Energy 3000?). Supposedly a very good additive that can improve engine performance and stuff. Never tried it as I'm not sure those things are completely harmless, but interesting nevertheless.

[:D][:D] Cixi, don't sweat the small stuff, you get your points across just fine. [:D][:D]

The most important things are to change the oil, oil filter, and air filter on a regular schedule. In fact all the filters should be changed at least as often as the Owner's Manual says they should. The rest just ask, it's not a problem, someone here will be happy to answer you.

Thank You guys..
I'll change the air filter in one month.
and the oil filter and the oil in 8000 Km (5000 Miles)

I found one man that charge me 13$ per liter (0,26Gal)

That's the best price around here!!
I wish I could live in USA..!!
You have fantastic price... fantastic customer services!
Here is always a fight!
They said (foreing people) that they like italy because you can do almost everything!

OT..
Yust think.. I was in a Police department 2 days ago!
I was there because a person uttered threats to my person using the email.
So he WROTE ....!!
Do you know the penalty for it in case I could call him in front of a court?
50$!!! The Max!
So if he could prove this was the first time hi will charged for about 1/3 of 50$!!!!
The inspector told me... "Are you willing to spend 200$ in gasoline to go to the court 4 or more times to charge him 20$?!!"

He just suggest me to let him go...!
That's italy! Pizza and the other working thing... I don't remember... was it Mafia? Oh nooooooo!! Not Mafia.. Sorry [;)]

:)
