Re: BP

There are way more people to blame than BP, and they're the ones doing by far the most to try to contain the spill. That being said Obama is trying to pin this whole mess on them.

Re: problem with winter car, electrical issues

ive never used a data logger before, but i am thinking it might be able to help me with this issue. the car alarm is going off at random times, even though i have disabled it through the options built into the radio. so my thinking is something has to be triggering the alarm, like a door switch malf...

Re: no spark issue...

check for fuel pressure when cranking the engine (if you can get your hands on a fuel pressure tester), or listen for the fuel pump to kick on when you turn the key on. that will tell you if its a fuel pump issue, or you could try spraying starting fluid into the intake and seeing if it tries to run...
